Japan Trip 2011 - Day 6 - Project 144

IMG_20111030_104026

Back to Tokyo for day 6 and off to Project144, which is like the biggest 1/144 scale event in the world and possibly the only one devoted to the scale.

Lucky i  happened to be in Tokyo at the right time for this great event, wish i could have stayed longer.

Got to meet Koz who invited me along to the the project which was a pleasure and so many other 1/144 scale modeller who blogs i follow, all very kind fellows. Made me double my effort with my Japanese, thought i was quite good until i actually tried to engage in real conversations and not knowing enough vocab, got quite good at buying and understanding number when i was there.

Japan Trip 2011 - Day 6 - Project 144

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha style, saw quite a few Miku Hatsune too.

Was a great event and i even got a freebie from Matuo-kasten which was incredibly kind. Surprised that a few of the modellers knew my work and most knew Bluedonkey

Wonder if such a thing would be possible in the UK?

I think it was a dream come true since you are into 144 scale modelling.

Thats a great way of expressing whta i felt Leon and being in Japan also added to the effect.

man, those are lovely works, each and every one of them !!! the mini-dioramas are like little pieces of life... but i must say that the B-52 bomber plane is the most awesome =O... by the way, i don’t know anything about Bluedonkey, but i know your work and is precise and really nice =)

Ant Sized Man said...

Cheers chris, after visiting ive really want to make some diorama myself.
Bluedonkey has runs the Kampfgruppe144 blog and forum, too guy.

I do not speak English, but communication did not get much, I was glad to meet you there.

You fell in love work for?

I I like Buccaneer.
Buccaneer is produced by Uekisyokunin.
"Uekisyokunin = (Gardener)" He does not have a blog.


I want to look at the next opportunity can work for Ant Sized Man.
A similar exhibition in the UK Project 144, we expect you to be held.

Then now is, and I struggle to go to England.

Yo Koz, was great meeting you to, since coming back from Japan ive signed up for Nihongo lesson again.

Would be great to get a 1/144 event in Europe, if not UK i'd expect one to be held in Czech, some great 1/144 modellers there.

Uekisyokunin was one of the few thre i did'nt know, all who have a blog i follow.

In my blog, I presented a report on the P144 in your blog.

Then, the Uekisyokunin "say thank you posted a picture to your blog" that was the comment.

It is located in the Czech manufacturer is eduard.
eduard launched the MiG-21 has heard that a very good kit.
In Japan, still can not buy. . .

BANDAI and eduard should be holding an 1/144 event in Europe, I think!
