WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 Crusher Joe Fighter 1

As a kid, I had built the original release of the Takara Crusher Joe Fighter 1 so it’s a pleasant surprise that Hasegawa managed to get the license for a newly molded version. I was also surprised that the kit is snapfit, which I think might be one of the first for Hasegawa. The parts …...

WIP : Nitto PKA Gustav Pt. 2 – Painting & Finishing

As is now usual, I start with a base of black. Next is a white marble coat. The main color is Panzer Grey with red for the chevrons. These were sprayed slightly thinned so the marble coat shows through. The decals come from the Wave PKA Konrad kit as the original Nitto ones have yellowed …...

Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

It’s about time I say! Back in the 1980s I had the 1/144 Takara release and of course, I wrecked it by painting with Tamiya markers. Since this is from Hasegawa’s Creative Works line, it should be quite nicely detailed. Plus it’s in a nice 1/72 scale to boot. Can’t wait for the actual finished …...

WIP : Nitto 1/20 PKA Gustav Pt. 1 – Construction

Time to thin my SF3D/Ma.K stash! This is a PKA Gustav from Nitto when Maschinen Krieger was still known as SF3D. It has since been superseded by a snapfit release from Wave. While this is definitely showing its age with its 1980s engineering and fit, it’s a multimedia kit: it includes brass rods, wires, springs …...

WIP : Fine Molds 1/72 Y-Wing Fighter Pt.2 – Painting & Finishing

Painting begins with my usual black base using Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black. I’m trying a different marble coat this time with patches of various colors. I wanted to see these would have effect on the main colors. The primary color for the Y-wing is thinned Game Color Dead White. The nice thing about priming in …...
