The night before the Eve of AniMangaKi 2014

The Engineer part of me likes it when the things that needs to be done are completed way ahead of schedule. The Cynical part of me thinks that something disastrous is going to happen or that I did not cover all the bases. But for the moment, I am enjoying the feeling of selfish accomplishment to the point of being a prudish prick. And what did I mean by that? I have absolutely no idea.

Anyway, since I am going to show up with three models and a demo unit during the weekend, I would need a lot of AAA batteries (14 to be exact) Three each for every model plus a pair for the lighted base. And so, after days of hunting for proper battery packs (ie cheep cheep ones), I finally found them at Amcorp Mall's Giant of all places. And for RM14.99, its a bargain because the alternative costs 2 to 3 times more.

Left to Right:
Moebius 1/32 Cylon Raider, its base, Imperial Guard Valkyrie and Moebius 1/32 Advanced Cylon Raider
Bonus item!
All my designs on a piece of plastic sheet!

OK, let me tell you a bit about the Blue Plastic Board of Accomplishment
This is a 'Show and Tell' that I just made up last night. It shows all the circuit boards I have designed and made (or not) into Production:
1. The Star Trek board is my first design in 2009, which has the LED timing for four Starships but it was never sold because of the amount of LED crimping on fragile wires, which I literally gave up.

2. The second board was for the Moebius Advanced Raider which literally sold out within about a year. And its retired except for a few handfuls left.
3. The current design now is the Viper board which is a 7-in-1 solution mostly for the BSG Vipers, and TOS Cylons. And it is on sale.
4. The Warhammer is the latest board for a few models which is yet to be introduced and I hope to get them ready by this year. -ish.
