I bought this kit with the Cross Silhouette add-on to allow me to make a slightly less deformed version of the Nightingale. This kit is although none scaled, it is still quite a huge kit; the shoulders and tail sections are already almost similar height to an EG RX-78 Gundam. Parts separation are not too shabby for a “Fun” kit, but I wish the vernier thrusters are moulded in separate parts so that I can paint it in different colours (masking is possible as well but has a curved and raised edges thus it is not easy to get a clean separation).
As usual I pre-shade my painting scheme, but I tried to do something different this time; I was hoping to give it a more “organic” look, like a mechanical crab with lots of blemishes and spots. This will also help to break up the majority red scheme and give it interesting surfaces textures.
Slight disappointment is that the insignia crest on the chest and shield comes as stickers, which I have not used. I could have hand painted the chest crest in but I am not good with hand painting and hence decided against it.
DONATION: GIVE ME A CARROT!
Unlike some mobile suit pilots I do like carrots; epeically when I am working out what to build next. So if you do like my work, please consider donating to my “Carrot Pot” to help me keep this blog going!
