Laputa: Castle in the Sky Paper Craft

Here’s another miniatuart paper kit from Sankei featuring a scene from a Studio Ghibli movie – Laputa: Castle in the Sky.  I learnt from my previous experience and used PVA glue instead of liquid UHU glue which was much better for gluing down the fake greenery.  A lot less messier and no ‘spider webs’ appearing!

Kyoto / Osaka Trip Loot

I went to Japan back in April for a week or so and spent 4 days at Kyoto, 1 day in Nara and 2.5 days at Osaka.  I spent… more than I should have.  And having a credit card on me only helped that money vortex spin more easily.  =’D  Most of it was splurged when I returned to Osaka since Kyoto and Nara had a lot more sight seeing activities.  Nevertheless, I still dropped over 10,000 JPY at Pokemon Center Kyoto on the first day.  Hm.

Without further ado, let’s start the photo spam!

Time to do what I do best and spam photos!

Paper nano: Sagrada Familia & Music Room

160228_F4101

After owning the above paper nano set for probably well over a year, I finally got round to making it!  It’s been a while since I made any miniatures, and even more so since I had to use that type of UHU glue.  Not exactly the best kinda glue for this work but it’s the only other glue I have, aside from the glue stick.  I also have another set, the music room one, which I also made too.  That one was a lot more fiddly since it had more small pieces.
