March 21, 2010 - Update and Loot!

So work has been hell lately. Both of them. And now things seem to be slowing down. Hours at the comic shop are low this week(no idea if thats good or neccessary bad) and vending pulls have been CACA lately.
Hopefully, I can get the vend back on track. As for the shop, as long as it can be stable, I'll adapt and adjust. Its what I do. Anything else would cause and bring unneccessary attention to myself(and thats sorta not my policy). Buuuuutttt, with the extra time off - I can maybe get my crap together and play catch up. That means proper sleeping habits, normalizing the spending(meaning I now gotta be like a normal person and go back to budgeting my money and not splurging every week-boo.), catching up on shows(both anime or otherwise), gunpla work, plasmo work, AF custom work, vid sub/encode/edit work, working out, etc. As it seems, I have quite a bit to catch up on.
Well, first things first, lets do a loot post^^. The last 2 months have been nice on me, but sad for the wallet.( I think its still acting like a little B#$%^ and sobbing quietly in the corner.what a punk wallet. :p) I've procured a few things here and there, but I won't have this level of lootage anymore since I gotta budget. This time's loot includes-

The Iron man 2 AF's. Mark I(comic series), Deep Sea Armor(concept Armor series), Hypervelocity-stealth armor(concept armor series), Mark V-suitcase armor(Movie Series)
Mark III(movie series), and Iron Monger(movie series)

Plus a custom Movie accurate Mark VI with articulated torso and led lit arc reactor made from a light up mark VI( but for some reason, it lights up with a red led.)

B-club 1/100 Red Frame Manipulator set 1(left) and B-club 1/144 freedom gundam manipulator set(right). gonna use the freedom set for custom work on 1/144 red frame.
Wonder why the hell I'm showing my codes geass knightmare frame model kits? I have a reason. And a question.MG red frame comes with aweful puke yellow "gold parts."Its for the hilt and the end handle piece of its katanas. I'm gonna do a gold paint treatment to improve the puke yellow. Below are 2 kits that use 2 different gold styles. I will use one. Thats where I'd like some help.
First is the Lancelot. This was done with Tamiya Gold leaf spray.
This will be potential treatment #1
Next up is the Gurren mk II. The knife had silver with clear yellow done to it.
This is potential treatment #2.

So thats my update. and my loot post. Now I'm off to do a vid, then its off to finish the XN raiser since I have the proper paint now. Any help picking a gold for the red frame's katana gold parts paint treatments would be greatly appreciated. You can leave a comment from the post or you can drop your thoughts in the Chat box. Thanks. Later people.

P.S. - When I get some time, I will be doing a massive food post. I recently had a curry week.(more like curry 2 1/2 weeks.)Lots of curry related foods. Anticipate!
