HPI Baja 5B

Did up this kit a while back when I was still at the last Hobby Studio. The kit was build up over time and photos were taken progressively as it was built.  This kit was one of the popular RC kit around. Newer models were developed after this. Search the web and you probably will find lots of articles and videos of the same or variants of it.

Work & Hobby Studio

This was a part work and part hobby studio. It had a combination of both RC Kits as well as Japanese Art Figurines. There was also a Computer Workstation loaded up with Flight Simulation games and gadget. It was very much a creative haven for me and sometimes for my young son as well. This studio was created within a warehouse space and built up progressively over time.

The above was also posted on www.dannychoo.com together with some other figurine related articles.

Vintage Tin Toy Fire Engine

VINTAGE TM TIN TOY 1912 FIRE ENGINE WITH DRIVER

Added this into my toy collection. Should be my first Tin Toy after many years.  Can’t recall any that I might have during my childhood days.

This Vintage fire engine is a fabulous Japanese toy. The toy is in reasonably good condition but is missing the top of the water pumper. The driver is intact and the base shows very little rust wear. The front wheels are a bit loose.

If it has been new like this one, then it will worth just as much but that’s OK. Its still as precious to me.

The Anime In Me

Among the many art form that I see around me, Japanese anime character or figurine is one of my favorite.  I have been collecting this art for several years now and have a sizable collection both at my office and at my home.  I used to have a bigger studio where I kept most of the collection together under one roof but since moving out, I have distributed them between my home and my office.  Thought I’ll just organize them here for anyone who might also be interested in this art form.

The character above is Yamato’s CREATORS’ LABO #015: NEON GENESIS EVANGELION,  from one of the all-time classics Neon Genesis Evangelion. She is known by many as Rei Ayanami as envisioned by famed artist Shunya Yamashita and brought to life by master sculptor Mitsumasa Yoshizawa.

The 4 x 4 RC truck is a HPI Savage Flux HP.  Powered by twin 3S LiPo batteries and on-road tires, the Savage Flux HP can achieve a blistering top speed of 62 mph (100kph)!
