November 2014 GE Member Spotlight Sensei Sindak

Posted by Posted Imageautobot75 (Spotlight Manager) at Nov 19 2014, 01:44 PM. 0 comments

Gundam Eclipse Member Spotlight: Sensei Sindak
Interviewer: Autobot (November 2014)

Posted Image

Introduction
1) How did you come up with your tag (Sensei Sindak)?

i changed some letters from my surname turning it into "Sindak" as for Sensei, i wanted to have another "S" word to make my tag more catchy.

Posted Image

2)Real name/occupation/race/residence?

I wont be saying my full name, but you can call me Charles. Im still a student, currently living in the Philippines.

3) What/who introduced/inspired you to start Gunpla (or plastic models in general)? Any influential modelers that you really look up to?

I stumbled into plastic modeling when i joined a club back in grade 5. Ever since i got more serious in the hobby, i always looked up to "Major Williams" and "DC23" since i learned a lot from their blogs and seeing their finished builds never fail to inspire me.

4) Any other interest/hobbies besides Gunpla?

I got into dancing around the same time i did with assembling models, joined a bunch of competitions and gigs with my crew, dancing became part of my lifestyle. Im also in to skating, fencing, football and when i have the time i'd end up playing Clash of Clans on my phone.

5) What's your favorite animation/robot design/videogame?

My favorite kit was the MG Sinanju, i have so many ideas on customizing this kit but i only had the time to build 1, which i am very much proud of.

Posted Image

6) How do you feel about the direction the hobby is heading? What do you like to see?

Before i joined this forum i thought that this wasn't a hobby with a lively community and i laid low for quite awhile. in the end i found out that this hobby is actually very wide spread and active. With the new releases and designs to plastic models, this is a hobby that future generations would be doing for years to come. The quality of the new kits are worth every penny you spend for it, believe me.

7) How long have you been building Gunpla/when did you start?

I built my first kit back at 2008 stopped for a few years then got back at 2011.

8) Would you like to introduce more people getting into this hobby? the forum?

Of course i would, this hobby became a part of my life and i never regret being part of it. This forum has thought me a lot ever since i joined. Learned new things, techniques, and the people here are great!

9) Do you like and enjoy entering a contest/competition? What do you like the most about it?

Whenever i have the chance to enter a competition, i would. The effort you put into competition entries is more than when you build because you feel like it. Win or lose the experience is priceless. For me, the best part is claiming your kit afterwards... Where everyone can see that you made that kit, and when i claim it, i claim it proudly.

Posted Image

Current Build Experience
10) What are you currently building?

II'm working on my GMKC entry, calling Banshee Dark Matter. Not sure if i can finish it in time for the competition though.


11) How do you like the build so far and why did you make any modifications (if any)? Influences, etc? Tried something new compared to previous builds?

I'm loving it! Its the most I've done on a HG kit. i tried to base its look a bit from the Exia Dark Matter, ended up a litlle more bulky.

12) Toughest challenge(s) in the build?

I have been at it for 5 months now, working on it from time to time. I think disassembling it to paint would be the toughest... And putting it back together after would be just the same.

Posted Image

13) Were there changes that had to be made midway in the build?

My plans at first were just to give it a unicorn color scheme, but once you start with the modifications... You cant stop.

14) Do you recommend what you build/did to others and what level of experience/age group do you think is required to reproduce similar work?

Sure why not? It not that hard to kitbash, it just takes patience, work, and a lot of imagination. As in legit imagination, till your brain hurts. Hahaha

15) Like your results so far? if you have an opportunity to redo certain parts or steps, what parts/steps do you want to do differently? or leave it the same?

The progress i looking well, but if i were to change anything, i would have used a MG instead of the HG i'm am currently working with. The detail isnt as much and i want more space to add mods.
If you have any pictures that you like to include from your current builds, please include them. we may also link your current WIP thread in the spotlight page so others can find it readily available.


16) What kit(s)/project(s) are you planning to build in the near future?

I always wanted a 1/100 resin of the Kshatriya, i'm trying to spare some time to pick one up, but the time it takes to finish one is another thing.

17) Something new you want to try on your next build? Something new to learn?

Weathering. I really want to make a rusted/decaying MS diorama, already have a kit i'm working on for this.

Posted Image

18) Any kits that you dream of having, even though no manufacturer has made one yet?

A Sazabi Perfect Grade. If ever that were to happen, i'm sure i'll be broke after purchasing one.

Final Thought
19) If you could offer one piece of advice to someone starting out with the hobby, what would that be?

Patience, never rush your work. And always sleep, i always find it hard to sleep when i'm working on a kit. And forcing the work just causes more flaws on the build.
