The star destroyer in jakku diorama

When i was doing this diorama there were two item i never really use before this. one of the item was the air hardening modeling clay and the other was the tamiya texture paint. With this build i finally manage to use it(without much research) and get the feel of using it on a diorama.

First up was the modeling clay for the base and also i did some sand weathering on the star destroyer with the tamiya weathering kit. I leave the clay to dry for 24hr even though it already feel hard after few hour. Also there is a base before i add in the clay but i some how lost the picture of the base.

After the clay was fully dry and harden i add a few layer of the tamiya sand texture paint on it than i leave it over night for it to dry.

This was the end result i got when the tamiya texture paint are dry.

So far this was a fun build and i got to play with something new to test on. As for how much this diorama cost me it is as following.

  • Plastic board(not sure what it is call but i use this for the base) - $2-3
  • Star destroyer titanium series - $10 approx*
  • modeling clay - $13-15
  • tamiya sand texture paint - $20
  • tamiya weathering kit - $11-15
So it come to a total of approx $63 bnd but lucky for me i got some left over for some of the stuff.

Star wars star destroyer titanium series

So I was in the local Toy R Us here in Brunei and my plan was just to look around and not planning to spend, but end up buying 3 star wars stuff. One of the item that I end up buying is this star destroyer titanium series.

This die cast cost around $9.90 bnd each and there are a few more model out there like the X-wing, tie fighter, advance tie fighter and a lot more.

inside the box you can see that it also give you a stand to hold the star destroyer for display it out of the box.

On the stand it self there is a star wars emboss on it. it is a little bit hard to see on some angle but it is there.

Here is the view of the star destroyer.

This is the bottom view of the star destroyer. I was hopping that they would hide the screw better but unfortunately the 3 screw slot pop up and make the bottom part ugly.

The ship got a lot of detail but it look plain when it out of the box. So here I apply some panel line with the tamiya panel line paint to make the detail pop up.

So far I was please with the produce but that does not mean I don’t have any issue with it.The 1 and only issue I have with this ship is the 3 screw slot on the bottom of the ship. wish they can hide it a little better.


Magic Origin Clashpack


Magic origin clash pack english version was sold in Urbangames/RH and also in Fanboys Infinite for $40 each. Considering the card that in this pack, the $40 kind of worth it especially some of the card is a staple for standard and six of the card is an alternative art. Do take note that this pack of mine is the japanese pack but it is the same contain except for the wording in japanese.



Inside the pack contain two pack of card, one deck box, one cardboard card divider, one poster with the deck list and one magic rule.



This the contain for one of the pack.



This the card list for the another pack of card.



This is all the six foil alternative art that was in this pack. From the top left Valorous stance, Honored hierarch, seeker of the way and from the bottom left siege rhino, sandsteppe citadel and Dromoka the eternal.


As for the rest of the card name you may check here.


Magic origin deck builder tool kit


This is my first time opening a deck builder tool kit and yes this is the Japanese version of the tool kit as I order this online without knowing the store also stock them. The tool kit will cost about $30 bnd from reader haven/urbangames and fanboys infinite but as of this post Fanboys infinite are sold out.



Well beside the box which you can use to store your card, you will also be given the rule card with a poster with some description and such (I don’t know how to read Japanese). You also will be given 4 booster pack, 1 from origin and the 3 pack will be random as some can be from nyx, theros and even M15. Beside from the 4 booster pack you will be given 4 pack of card, 2 of the pack will be land and the other 2 will be the bulk common and uncommon card and also some rare.



The 2 pack of land they give you also included 2 of each dual land and the rest are the basic land.



The other 2 pack give you the bulk common and uncommon and also 5 rare which is 1 from each color.



Here is what I got from the pack that was from this tool kit.


So far I found $30 for this tool kit a bit expensive especially when you got 4 booster pack and 3 of them are random as some of the set will be roll out of standard soon and if you are not a morden player the card will be kind of useless to you in standard in few month time. Beside from that everything seem good.
