Out of all my purchases at AnimeNext 2013 this past weekend, I’d say my all time favorite were the two pirate ship building kits I got from One Piece. I was so excited to build them, since they would be my first experience with anything kit building at all! Super exciting! I couldn’t wait to start them….so I really didn’t! I started Sunday night when I got back home! XD I finished one Sunday night and another one this morning before work!
They were a ton of fun, especially for someone like me, who hasn’t done anything like this before! Granted, the tiny stickers drove me almost insane. >_> I’m a bit too OCD with getting things to look perfect. Some stickers would bubble a little, and I spazzed, but I didn’t want to rip the stickers or something. *internal freak out*
So I started on Sunday night with Law’s sub. All the instructions were in Japanese, but that wasn’t really an issue, since the pictures were so easy to understand and the pieces/stickers were numbered or defined by a simple character.
It didn’t take me that long to do at all, and Sarah watched me the whole time squealing about how awesome it was looking…and heck yeah, it was looking totally awesome indeed!!
Monday morning at like 6am, aka my usual wake up time, I tackled Shanks’s ship! I was super excited about his ship, since it was a little more intense than Law’s sub. (There were a lot more tiny pieces to put together) I was seriously afraid of snapping everything in half while taking it off the thingy. I was breathing heavily the whole time I was snapping the pieces out.
BUT IT LOOKED SO COOL WHEN IT WAS ALL DONE! SO COOL INDEED! I wish I would have GOT THEM ALL! But…..I had already spent way too much. WAY TOO MUCH! Seriously though.
This is something I’d like to do more of though….oh no….I smell another expensive hobby in the making. Crap.
