Decals and Funnels

Today I printed out the decal on decal paper. For economy reasons I printed it out on a normal paper sheet first, then i cut out a piece of the decal paper the size of the decal and taped i over the printout. Then I printed again, this way I don't waste huge amounts of decal paper :)
Next the printed decal got misted with a few coats of clear paint it seal it. Done!

Also added some smaller decals here and there, nothing major. Not a big fan of those decal-hell robots.

Next I painted the funnels and put them in the 'beehive'. Now it really payed off that i used neodyne magnets there - would have been a major pain otherwise trying to pin them in there in the fixed pose.

Will make nicer pics when i borrow my parents DSLR :)

Aya Natsume

I bought this half started figurine kit of Aya Natsume from Tenjo Tenge for cheap from somebody on the E2046 forum. Figures aren't really my thing but what the hell, I'll try, even if i probably never finish it :)

I don't really like the skimpy outfit, but the dragon is rather cool. So I have the overly ambitious idea to scratchbuild/model a hakama and gi on her.
Kinda this style:

So if i EVER finish this there is maaaaaaaaybe a minimalistic chance it will be totally awesome. To start off, I'm removing the gothicy shoes of her. Tedious and makes quite a mess:

Nagano Logo

Edited the logo a bit, which was surprisingly easy.

And printed it out on paper to get s feel for the size.
Also reattached the flaps/wings of the Qubeley as they were a tad uneven in height.

Here the Q with the logo attached with some masking tape.
