WIP : Wave 1/72 Legioss Eta – Construction & Finishing

This is a snapfit kit from Wave Corporation of the main mecha in Genesis Climber Mospeada. As you can see, the color separation leaves much to be desired and painting is definitely required. I’ve had this kit snapfitted for a few years now and the plastic had become more brittle. The result was that I …...

WIP : Wave 1/20 SAFS – Construction & Finishing

I found another Shelf Queen which was quite near to the painting stages so what better time than do roll up the sleeves and finish it? Most of the gap filling had already been done although I spotted more things that I needed to fix. The Wave kits use polycaps for attaching the limbs so …...

WIP : Wave 1/20 Rapoon Pt. 2 – Painting & Finishing

Time to finish this kit. Seamlines aren’t hidden and need to be addressed. The areas in shadow were pre-painted in black before assembly. Black base as usual to begin. Marble coating with white. Nothing too precise though. I went with a ground-oriented color scheme with red pauldrons. The joint covers were handpainted in medium...

WIP : Wave 1/20 Rapoon Pt. 1 – Construction

Upcoming : Wave 1/72 VF-4 Lightning III

Final product pictures have popped up on the internet and it looks good. But it’s a Wave kit, which based on my experience usually means the plastic would be softer, the molding would not be as sharp as Bandai or Hasegawa and there might be fit issues. Still, I’m glad someone is finally tackling this …...

Upcoming : Wave 1/72 VF-4

This was a surprise since the VF-4 is one of the more obscure valkryries from the Macross metaverse. It’s also a surprise it’s coming from Wave since as far as I know, only Bandai and Hasegawa has the 1/72 kit licenses for Macross. In any case, I hope to see more pics soon. Pictures of …...
