About The Build »
Another mental-health build for me after and during all of these scratchbuilds and involved projects. The kit is very nice OOB but I made a few minor changes to suit my likings. First off I removed the chrome plating by soaking the parts overnight in some Purple Power. (Also good for cleaning resin and removing Tamiya Acrylics) By doing this I was able to clean-up seams and paint the gold in a nicer more muted tone. The gold is Alclad II Pale Gold. MechaSkunk’s socket pins were used for the Triceros Kai lances boosters and gold cable beads left over from the Hi-Zack were added to the swords. The decal scheme for the wings was based on a Kimono pattern.
