At long last, after a few disturbances, the kit is already finished...

My views regarding the kit:

-Face and figure detail not that sharp (maybe out of scale 1/35)
-parts are fragile compared to other 1/35 kits
-instruction manual is fair
-assembly is difficult
-first run decals negatively reacted to decal setting solution
-can use 1/35 accessories
-customizable
-mold lines are almost nil, no need to sand mold lines that much
-molded in sugessted color

In my vignette, i used Gunze Laquers, Tamiya and Model Master Enamels for the painting and Tamiya Weathering Master for the detailing.

As for the additional details, I used Tamiya Tent Set, Jerry Can Set, and Academy 1/35 AFV Accessories Set.  The motorcycle was from Tamiya's German Motorcycle Orderly Set. I left the original scheme and markings for a purpose.

The scenery were all from Woodland Scenics.

For the nth time, pardon the poor quality pics. I'm still saving up to buy a digital camera instead of using a mobile phone VGA camera.  :)

















I'm waiting for the price to go down.....

Good Job and Goodluck for the BAKUC

Well done.  Too bad the focus is a bit "soft" on your phone camera, it's hard to pick out the details.  I like the different paint scheme for the wappa, the paint chips are nice.  Did you add the curved signs and the "vehicle plate" to match that of the German bike?  :lol:

Photgraphy aside, it looks like you did a nice job here. The Wappa looks good in the blue scheme. Some of the grass sprigs look high (unless it's pompous grass), but I've done that as well.

@ mkk: Thanks, hopefully this will be included in the finals.

@ Major Blah: The paint scheme was the Airborne Asault version as seen in the animation and was included in the instruction manual as color Medium Blue + Daytona Blue + Red.  The curved vehicle plate decals of the Wappa was included in the kit. Hence, the "AA" prefix.

@ Sir FichtenFoo: Thank you sir. I chose the blue one because it's the scheme shown in the animation. As to the grass, I depict it as tall, pompous grass, similar to the tall grasses seen in wild forests.  Maybe I can do some lawning here, eheheheh...   :lol:

I like your work a lot, I can recommend that next time for  1/35 plastic figure you may consider to try replacement resin heads. The best ones in my opnion are from Hornet, they will really add the final touch for the figures.

I love how the figures turned out by the way.

I've got mine and can't wait to build it....

I actually have Verlinden 1/35 heads. I was tempted to use that on the Wappa figures because of the "poor" molding but i decided to use the heads instead to more "serious" projects.  :)

@Naph: Thank you Champ.  :lol:

@ Dorgas: Thank you bro. Even you did not include the Sambos,i'ts ok.
