Youth Anniversary 2008!

Another year has passed, and the Gethsemane Youth Bible Hour is another year older by the grace of God. Indeed, it is by God's grace that the Youth ministry has grown.

Pastor was the speaker, and he spoke on "Remembering God's goodness in our lives" and preached from Psalm 20. A timely reminder for me as I start on my 'new life' in TJC, that God must be our center of thought.

Presentations! Thank God for the songs that were sung; some of them served as an encouragement to me.

Group Photos - Formal and Candid shots.

CAKE anyone? =D (We are not 5 years old. Just that we only placed 5 candles... ><)

Happy Birth Anniversary to GYBH!

Happy Birthday Boon Siang! (Just joking =P)

Singing I go, along life's road~ =D

Updates, and an Overhaul

I was looking through my old model kits, and boy, I was a terrible modeler in the past. I mean my HG Strike Gundam (my very first model) was REALLY PATHETIC. There were spruces everywhere, and the seams were very obvious. Ok, maybe they weren't seams but GAPS in between the models. This shows how lousy I was in the past.

Now, it's time for me to make up for my mistakes. REPAIRING THE STRIKE. That will take a while; but my Aile Strike Gundam will no longer be Aile Strike, but I'm planning to upgrade it with spare parts I find around.

Why edit the Strike Gundam?
Well, the Strike is a multi-functional Unit. I loved the Sword Strike, but it needed more weapons. So when Gundam 00 came out, Gundam Exia made me want to edit the Strike. Since I had spare parts lying around, I decided to scratch build certain stuff for the Strike to customize it.

Brief overview of the Strike's overhaul:
- GN Sword addition for right arm. (I have 2 Exias, one of which was converted to Astrea. So i'm using the GN Sword from that one.)
- GN Dagger for left arm. (Same reason as above)
- Addition of "Flight Unit" for the legs using 1/144 NG Justice's backpack.
- Possible backpacks in my mind: (i)Launcher Strike (no change) or (ii)Movable Shield
- Other possible armaments: (i)Sword from Sword Strike; (ii)Dual saber fang; (iii)Others

And my Graham's custom Flag parts which I have cut out, sanded, filed:

I hope to get Graham's Flag done ASAP. Then I'll most probably move on to editing Strike Gundam.

Other stuff which I plan to build:
- 1/144 HG Psycho Gundam (This will take a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG while. It's BIG, real BIG)
- 1/100 NG Red Astray
- 1/144 HG Gundam Exia (My second Exia which I haven't started on.)

GNY-001 Gundam Astrea UPDATE

Well, this update is basically just some slight repainting.

Repainted the beam saber; it's more pinkish now. Check out the forehead too, it's green instead of yellow. Finally, the back, added the green coloured parts to show the "GN Particle" thingy...

Psalm 119:9-16

Psalm 119:9-16
"Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word."

Well well, find these verses particularly familiar? No surprise, Pastor used this text for his exhortation on Tuesday night prayer meeting. And why am I mentioning it here? Cause it speaks particularly to me.

How can a young man cleanse his way before God? Simple, by obeying Him. How often I have failed to obey God and wander from the pathway! I'm such a wretched sinner, but the eternal and perfect God still loves me. How many times has He spared my life! If I were to be punished for each and every sin I have, I would have been punished time and time again.

Pastor made a statement, something like "It would be best if a young man gives his life to the LORD". This struck me: I had decided to commit my life wholly to God a few years ago. But oh how many times I have fallen. Each statement that pastor made, it really pains my heart. I have sinned, and sinned, and sinned; but all this while God has been so merciful and kind to me. That Tuesday night, I could not help but cry within myself when pastor spoke. I dare not echo, "With all my heart have I sought thee" like the psalmist.

I pray that I would treat God's word and His commandments seriously, to "meditate" and to "respect" His Word, and to have an inward regard for God's Word. O may I be able to praise Him with my lips and my words! I pray, that I will keep God's Word in my heart, and not forget His word; so that I might not sin against Him. O LORD, teach me thy statutes!

GN-003 Gundam Kyrios & GNY-001 Gundam Astrea

GN-003 Gundam Kyrios
Well, well. It has been a week since I started on Kyrios, and I'm finally done. I'm not too pleased with it, cause I messed up the paint job real bad. Might not be obvious here though.

GN Sub-Machine Gun, and the GN Shield. (The GN Shield is the claw thingy on the left hand.)

MA Mode. Top and bottom view.

Dynames, sniping the targets! Remember Episode 15?

Zeta Gundam: Stop copying me! It's so obvious that you are a rip-off of the original Waverider!

GNY-001 Gundam Astrea
Well, nothing much to say about it. Gundam Astrea is the prototype for GN-001 Gundam Exia, and was first deployed in AD 2292. Only have one picture since the Conversion Kit didn't come with any of the weapons that Astrea used (ie the Proto GN Sword and the Proto GN Launcher). The beam saber is taken from the Exia model kit, and I'll repaint it... The colour's like running off already... *And I bought another Exia since my first Exia was converted into Astrea.*

NEXT JOB: HG Graham's Union Flag! (But first, I needa get sandpaper.)

My messy worktable...

Well, someone has asked me to updated my blog for no particular reason. The best part, update your blog with a post saying "how bored you are"... Well, I'm updating, but not with such a lame post =P (Sorry Xiaomeimei ><)

My models cupboard. Yes, it's quite empty. And this was taken some time ago (like last year or January...), so that's why there's no Dynames and GP02...
My Worktable

Yes, messy...

Kyrios parts which I just painted 2 nights ago... (I messed up the paint job *cries*)

I cut up all the parts and place them into sections... So all the parts that contribute to the left leg goes to one section, right leg to another etc etc.

Paint, and thinner, and gloss...

Tools... The knife is sharp, cut myself once and bled for 5 mins straight ><

Paint brushes... I need a finer tip one >< *Birthday Present? =D*

Needs: Putty, Sandpaper, and VERY fine tip brush.
