chobittsuchobittsu Cutie Collector



I'm Jean-Luc and live in the Netherlands. I'm a little older than the average anime/manga fan, but I guess I'm just a late bloomer. I became interested in anime and manga (in that order) several years ago when I was browsing through some inventories of resin kits and saw figures from Sailor Moon that I happened to see years ago when I was interested in cartoons in general. This type of animation peeked my curiosity and it was during the browsing that I remembered this series. I saw other figures and I was wondering where they originated from, so I did some searching and ended up with Love Hina. I think this series triggered my interest in anime and I particularly liked the female characters. They were bold and there was this so-called fanservice, which I found very interesting and I still do very much; it has become one of my criteria for purchasing anime/manga and their related items.
To this day, I only collect female figures, regardless of scale. I usually go for the cute or sexy characters (or a combination of them). My focus is now primarily on garage kits; most of those I try to buy when I'm in Japan at Treasure Festa, WonFes or Hobby Round.
As for manga, I do not own many series: 9 english series; 2 still ongoing and 33 japanse series; 7 still ongoing (plus several stand-alone manga).
Regarding anime, I have a nice collection of dvd's, both european and japanese editions, of around 80 series (most of them are complete, some of them are still in the process of being acquired).
I am studying japanese; partly so I can understand my japanese manga and dvd's, but also because I like to to go on vacation to Japan.

chobittsu (4 months ago) #9266291Verf koop ik in principe bij de betere modelbouwzaken; die hebben ook een beter assortiment. Meestal gebruik ik acrylverf van Model Color (knijpflesjes waarbij je de benodigde verf in een bakje spuit; handig om te mengen) en Tamiya. Alleen voor huidskleur gebruik ik enamelverf van ModelMaster (Skin Tone Light; die tint is mijn favoriet); die laatste heb ik online gekocht omdat ik het niet in winkels kon vinden.
Bedoel je met figuur overschilderen een PVC figuur?

Oke, mooi. Zal ik daar eens naar zoeken. Ik bedoelde inderdaad een pvc figuur. Ik zat te denken aan deze item #49421 er zijn allemaal rare vlekjes in gekomen + er zijn gebroken onderdelen. Ik dacht, als het eventueel lukt om het over te verven dan kan ik het met dit figuur proberen.

Ik vroeg mij af waar je je verf koopt voor je GK figuren? Ik wil het eens proberen, maar ook wil een figuur over schilderen. Heb je daar tips/advies voor?

dank :)

Is there any chance you could upload me the images of the fanart? I might just get a custom daki of them if I can find the original fanart

chobittsu (4 months ago) #8430973I got it from Mandarake in 2013 when I was in Japan. Unfortunately it seems like it isn't available anywhere anymore (at least I couldn't find another one).

That was a fast reply and ah well thanks anyway it was a long shot
