-Thanks to the services of our good Tai Ho Ma in HK,i’ve had the honour and privilege to visit for a quick recon the studio of the famous Ray Ng, 2015 GBWC finalist , artist and gunpla art teacher.
-The Master was able to see us even if he was busy with a pupil, and on top of allowing us to take some pictures, he wanted to exchange a couple of Q&A with us.
-In particular the Master was really impressed by gunpla popularity in Italy,noting how our country is the Only( for now) European nation with an official Bandai importer, and able to send regularly a national representative to the finals in Japan.
Si è poi soffermato sulla tecnica di costruzione sottolineando come talvolta buoni lavori vengono penalizzati da una ovvia mancanza di “precisione” in fase di applicazione di “builders parts” o dettagli, in quanto a volte i builders occidentali sembrano andare ” a occhio” … Un errore inaccettabile per il maestro, che rispecchia la cultura dell’attenzione maniacale per i dettagli e proporzioni praticata e insegnata a HK e in Japan.
-he then made some considerations on the building techniques, highlighting how sometimes very good ” works” can be penalised by an obvious lack of precision when applying “builders parts ” or details, as sometimes western builders seem to work in approximative manner: an unacceptable mistake for the Master, that fully embodies the culture for maniacal attention to details and proportions practiced and tought In hk and in Japan .
Sperando di poter in futuro ripetere la esperienza e magari imparare qualche tecnica nuova!!
-We now leave you with the pictures,
Hoping to repeat in the future this experience and maybe learn some new technique! !
