I’ve had this kit in my backlog for almost a year and it’s great to finally get to it. I really want to do it justice because it looks amazing just snapped together. So far I have 2 modifications planned for it, and I’m also planning to paint and detail it as well.
The first mod is a pattern on the shield. I like the orange color and wanted more of it on the kit. I also like stripes on sneakers, like Puma or Onitsuka Tigers and I think something along those lines but more angular would look great on the shield. The second mod is the biggest scratch build I’ve tackled to date: 8 open hatches on the big fuel tank! There is a lot of empty space between the fuel tanks on the back of the kit and I want to fill that space a bit. I mocked it up and I think it will add a lot of dynamic lines to the static looking fuel tanks which make up half the mass of this kit.
Onto the pics!
That’s all for now. My last post was about the Kimaris Vidar, but I ended up putting that on indefinite hold; I may write about why I made that decision at some point but the short version is I just didn’t like it. Moving on to this kit was a good decision and I’m excited to see where it takes me!
Until next time, keep building!
