Simple build with not so good color separation, feels like they blew up the HG 1/144 version. Could have been a lot worse if my client wanted the seams dealt with.
A few updates in this post as well as a fix for a certain kit. Continue reading
A pretty simple build considering I already knew what to expect, the only part that gave me any trouble was handling the Alclad brass. Alclads high shine paints tend to rub off when handling them with your bare hands so I had to put this thing together with gloves. While it’s just an inconvenience the idea that even with a top coat I’m afraid to touch any part with brass on it made me decide when it’s time for an eventual MG Strike Freedom build (bootleg or 2.0) I will have to find an alternative.
I was a bit worried with this one as applying the amount of layers needed for a candy coat on to a frame meant that joints would be exceptionally tight. While there wasn’t any danger of breakage, paint scratch felt like a big possibility. Luckily the Sengoku design has large covers for some of the areas that paint scratch would most likely happen, and as long as it isn’t scratched by the time the client gets it I’m happy.
