Special Occasion

Weekend Hobby Goodies

Over the past two days I managed to put together the last members of the Warp Talons, mounted them on cork caps and they’re thus ready for primer. So time to wait for a comparatively nicer day, possibly the weekend, for a quick spraying session. I also took part in the first get-together-meetings those chaps at FigurinIstanbul organized. Check out some WIP shots of the bad boys and my Sunday pastime after the jump.



A Bunch of Occasions

Last time I mentioned that there are some interesting days ahead of me.  And what do you know, it just happens that this year a long national holiday coincided with my birthday, getting me out of the office and into a long weekend! This is pretty much what I needed right after a hectic week with overtime work and I’m planning to make the most of it… you guessed it… in the hobby department! Find out what I got for the b-day and what will be on my bench for the near future after the jump.


99 Luftballons: Berlin Visit!

The week of business visit/sightseeing is over and I am glad to be back home once more. While the first few days of our trip were pretty much dominated with work related meetings, I got to create some quality time with my wife and an old friend for the remainder of the week. I also made a much needed visit to a certain place, but I’ll spare you the spoilers! Find out the highlights of Berlin after the jump (image heavy post!).


We’re back, and better than ever!

Eid week is over, and so is my long silence in terms of the hobby. I had a much needed change of space this past week when I traveled to Italy, specifically to Rome, Florence and Venice. It was a great trip filled with culture (you don’t get to eat a Florentine steak next to a baritone singing Nessun Dorma anywhere else in the world I reckon), art, scenery and some good old fashioned trekking. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve walked this much in any trip thus far, ever. Find out some of my favorite shots after the break (obviously image heavy post)!


Ölçekli Dünyalar (Scaled World) Competition

This is pretty much old news for modeling enthusiasts but I guess late is better than never. The past weekend the Rahmi Koç Museum housed the Scale Model Club’s first modeling competition which will be held every year in concord with IPMS events. This year’s estimates show that over 150 modelers with close to 700 different models were displayed. Find out more on the event, the winners, and my humble entry after the jump (warning, image heavy post).
