One of the defining characteristics of Tsukuda's is that their eye paint resembles a butterfly. Now I've seen some Kader factory kids and even a couple Jesmar's that have eye paint that look pretty similar but nothing compares to the Japanese kids. I cannot WAIT to have her in hand!
I went a head and made my ICS flash cards anyway. The thrift store find had a poster in addition to a deck of cards and the poster was fine but the deck was weird. I don't like it, so on my lunch break I cut and taped a set. It's only been a day and I can match about 70% of the flags with their corresponding word. I quizzed myself and failed Kilo, November, Papa, Romeo, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, and Yankee. However, this is while the deck is in alphabetical order. I imagine that mixing them up will make things more difficult. There are several flags however, that I know the names of in addition to their meanings and those include India, Oscar, Xray, and Zulu.
I'm going to modify/convert? an old AM radio so that it can receive shortwave frequencies because I've always been fascinated with uvb-76 and thought it would be cool to have a Buzzer Machine. Apparently, the smaller the radio, the less likely it is to work but I still want to try. I want it to be small and portable and not the size of a ghetto blaster. I have all the tools I need to convert it, I'm pretty decent with a soldering pen so I don't think it'll be too hard. Speaking of soldering, I should finish my LED flashlight soldering project.
