1/35 Tamiya Sd.Kfz.184 Schwerer Jagdpanzer “Elefant” with ATAK Zimmerit

I started this kit way before the Panther A. Tamiya kits are famous for their engineering and the Elefant is not an exception. As a tank destroyer I like the heavy-look of the design and the lack of a turrent seem to simplify construction which I thought could be a good beginner armor kit to…

Wave 1/72 Macross Destroid Defender

The slightly awkward AA gun mecha Destroid Defender!  Just like the Missle Phanlax, the Defender is in Wave’s overpriced line up of Destroids. Being the first of the batch however, the price wasn’t too bad, but had more seamlines in the AA guns.  The kit provides two type of ammo catridges on the shoulders. I’m…

Wave 1/72 Macross Destroid Missle Phanlax

Who doesn’t love the Destroids. One of the standout “grunts” of Macross, I find the destroids a very practical design for a scifi show and the concept is still applicable today.

1/24 Volkswagen Type 2 Delivery Van “Egg Girls Summer Paint 2016″

Kshatriya is one of the more popular designs  from Gundam UC (see wikia for full description). It’s derived from the much bigger Queen Martha and is used by Maria since the opening episode. It looks very powerful and you’d have guessed it’s the boss mecha if you haven’t watched the show, but it quickly got…

MG Sazabi 1/100 – Coreworks conversion

Coreworks was one of the earlier Korean resin conversion garage kit makers. This was back in 2000s where the trend was to stylize and beefing up Gundam designs, and I loved Coreworks. This 1/100 Sazabi conversion was applicable to the old MG Sazabi, which had poor proportions.  To be honest I considered this an abandoned…
