Overview of 2016

I think I may have fallen in to pattern of 4 or 5 kits a year, I'm probably just getting really slow or just plain lazy. Not that I haven't been busy too, I've started school again this last September and I moved to a different province for that.

Anyway the very first kit of the year that I completed was my take on the Valvrave, a purely theoretical Mass Production Valvrave "Zaku", Which was very much inspired by the Graze from the release of Iron Blooded Orphans.

The second kit that I completed this year is the HGUC Byarlant Custom, this one is just a straight build with a pretty standard colour scheme with the only alteration being a little bit more white in the mix. This one also turned out surprisingly clean.

My third kit is a bit of an oddball for me, being that one non Gundam kit that I built this year, a 1/48 Spitfire. My work on it is super basic but I'm still pretty pleased with how it came along.

My fourth kit of the year was  HG Exia Dark Matter, I suspected that the Exia Dark Matter would look really good in orange, was not disappointed in the results.

My fifth kit was the ARX-8 Laevaetein, still can't pronounce that correctly, but I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I did finish a sixth kit in the past year an HGUC Anksha Space-Type, but I have evidently been quite lazy in posting it up, and a couple of WIPs in the same boat. I suppose those can wait for next year's overview.

Remember Flauros is fun.
