I’m sure a lot of us have, at some point of time, tinkered around with the occasional plastic model in the hopes of creating something magical- only to realize that we’re not quite able to do so just yet. Well, for the Gundam aficionados, here’s a group you might want to keep your eye on.
Calling themselves the “Poison Monkeys”, they are a grouping of some of Singapore’s most prolific Gundam Modelers. If you follow the local modeling scene, then they are no strangers to you- Toymaker, WayLander and Izakku81. Together with two guest modelers, Leon Ku and Sam Lim, Poison Monkeys will focus on providing commission services for those willing to imagine greater.
If you have been hiding under a rock, then here’s some photos:
“We are airbrush-wielding, paint-inhaling, plastic-hoarding maniacs who run the rat race just like you do. But once every so often, when inspiration strikes and creativity beckons, we become….POISON MONKEYS!!! Okay seriously, we’re just a bunch of dudes who are passionate about scale-modelling, and possess the skills to bring your toy to life. At least we think so. Got a Gundam kit you want to customise? Commission us for it and we’ll get crackin’.”
“Our mission is to provide quality scale modelling works for people to appreciate, to convince the uninitiated that we are not just big boys playing with toys, and to raise awareness of this hobby and hopefully inspire more Poison Monkeys”
Ambitious you might think, but remember everything starts small. Show your support by visiting their facebook page- http://www.facebook.com/PMworkz
