Last weekend was father's day and Lachlan came visiting with a gift for his dad. A 1/144th scale model of a 'Ginn' from the 'Gundam Seed Destiny' anime series. He didn't need to, Beth had already clubbed together with the kids and volumes one and two of 'Space Battleship Yamato 2202' are winging their way to me via the post.
To honour this effort I pushed aside my current batch of US army 'Bolt Action' miniatures I'm working on and assembled it in short order. Come on, how can you resist? A mecha not only armed with a gun and missiles, but a sword too!
I'm going to leave painting it for later, I want to try my air brush but as I'm a total novice I want to get some practice first.
