1/24 Volkswagen Type 2 Delivery Van “Egg Girls Summer Paint 2017”

What a fantastic idea for reusing old molds! Hasegawa made up a series with 3 cute girlfriends and released kits of them using old molds. This one is the fifth of the VW vans, the first I missed out on, the 2015 summer version, 2016 winter and 2016 summer. The decal designs has improved, the 2015…

VF-31J Siegfried Hayate Custom Deculture version – Macross Delta – 1/72 Bandai model kit

Having missed out on the VF-25 Macross Frontier’s deculture kits, I bought the Deculture Siegfried immediately. I’m a big fan of fancy aircraft art 🙂  This particular variant of VF-31J is the final version, after Hayate customized Messer’s aircraft to be his own. But with all the Freyja hearts you probably can’t tell 🙂  I…

VF-31F Siegfried Messer Custom – Macross Delta – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Second of the 4 VF-31 I’ve built so far, I got Messer’s ride for its grim reaper goodness and the extra Walkure decals from the promo campaign. Turns out these decals weren’t in short demand so now I have 3 sets :-/ Macross Delta has its critics and Messer is a cool character that just…

Wang Bailong (王白龍) is a heroine in the game Blade Arcus from Shining, which appears to be a 2D fighting game set in the Shining universe from the illustrator Tony. His design are quite adorable and have spawned a number of nice figures, with me buying a few of them such as Sakuya. The original…

Macross Delta VF-31J Siegfried Hayate with Fast Pack – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Macross Delta isn’t the best of the Macross series (and I have yet to finish the highly rated Frontier), but the Siegfried is a nice plane in concept. I’m not sure why I’m building so many of them really (this being the first of 4). They’re lacking the armored variants even. I’m not super thrilled…

VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Hikaru’s Final Shot : 1/72 Hasegawa

This is a Hasegawa 1/72 Strike Battroid kit conversion. The model depicts Hikaru’s VF-1S arriving at the chamber of Baldozer and emptied his magazine in his face. It was simply classic of the classics… no other sequence evoked such emotions! The Hasegawa Battroid isn’t a bad kit, and amongst the battroid models it’s one of…

Schpeltor K.O.G. 1/100 IMS kit from Volks

The Schpeltor (entry in Gearsonline) is the 5th in the Volks 1/100 IMS line, and was my third IMS kit after the Vatshu the Black Knight and Bang Doll. It has a very elegant design unlike the more armored LED Mirage, and I especially like the design of the shoulder armor.  The IMS kit is…

Jagd Mirage: Both 2992 : 1/100 HSGK Volks resin kit

The Jagd Mirage was a monster in every sense of the word. You can read the details of the Jagd at Gearsonline, but at a towering 43.9 meters it is 3x the regular Mortar Headds. You can tell from the size comparison with the Schpletor. I had very mixed feelings about the MH. When the Twin…

Scopedog Red Shoulder Custom – 1:20 Bandai

First of a few 1:20 Bandai Scopedogs that I finished with weathering. I’m very much drawn to the Bandai kits because their proportions are very spot on, and they are easy to build when you compare it to the 1:24 Wave variants or the tiny 1:35. There are a few gimmicks like the “bolts” on…

RE/100 Nightingale – Bandai 1:100

This was a really exciting kit back when it was released – started the RE line with a BOOM! The sheer size of the beast was impressive. But the kit has much space for improvements and various people had done detailed ups and conversions for it. I modified it using a combination of suggestions from…
