Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 19 Laputa

Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I'll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker. Then again, the first Totoro one was a one star but it still took many hours to put together so wasn't expecting this to be any easier although it did look simpler. There are quite a few...


Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 11 Spirited Away

For our Ghibli Miniatuart papercraft this time we'll be doing No. 11, a Spirited Away one which also happens to be a two star one again like the Kiki's Delivery Service I put together the last time. Spirited Away just happens to be one of my top Ghibili movies thanks to how exotic the art is and I'm sure most would agree it was quite moving how...


Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 9 Kiki's Delivery Service

This is the second papercraft I did rated at 2 stars complexity. Maybe that's why it took an extra 2 hours to do compared to the Totoro one totaling 8 hours. No powdery or sponge bits to mess with this time. Decided to start off with the shelves since they looked to be the easiest. They were all large pieces while most of the other parts where...


Last Day in Japan, Day 12 Time to Fly Back to UK

So today was the day we fly back to UK but, we still had a morning free before heading off to the airport - well, whole afternoon really but didn't want to join the rush hour trains carrying luggage... These were the manned stations you have to go through instead of the regular gates if you want to use your JR Pass. Thing is, not all exits have...


Putting Together a Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft - No. 5 Totoro

When I bought a bunch of Ghibli papercrafts back from my trip to Japan I wasn't really expecting them to be hard to put together. I saw the difficulty rating that ranged from one to three stars and this was one star so I thought, "How hard could it be?" If I read the bottom of the box I probably would have known better ^^; So, I decided to put this...


Trip in Japan Day 8 – Shirakawa Village, Takayama

Well, after a day's break of wandering around shops, it was back to touring the land of the rising sun. While I'm a big fan of Japanese games and Anime, I was also interested in Japan's culture thanks to all the TV programmes I grew up watching such as documentaries and travel programmes so I decided we should go visit a rural village while...
