Sazabi’s usual pose.
The red coloring and partial painting are done with a brush. I was tired of the huge size of the box and the number of parts, but somehow managed to complete it. There were days when it was covered in dust, and it was a battle with motivation. The children made fun of it as a shrimp, and I thought it would be weird to display it on the hood of my car.
Beam shotgun, long rifle and shield.
I was concerned that there was less detail on the shotgun compared to the rifle, but I gave up on improving the detail.
The ball joint at the wrist is loose, and the thickness of the weapon and wrist create interference and are prone to slipping.
Open the hatch and stand tall.
It’s going to be crazy all at once. It might be better if you make your thighs thicker.
I colored it keeping in mind the dirt around the duct and the interfering parts. I wish it looked like a heavy mobile suit.
Opening the hatch too wide will make the silhouette square, so keep it open sparingly.
It took me a while to color the frame. . .
I felt the difficulty of using a single color. I’m struggling to find the right balance.
I tried to make the drive part and lower body look dirty.
Hold the beam shotgun.
I can’t add pose variations because I can’t find any action-based joints.
It’s heavy and I feel scared to carry it.
Pose 2. I have given up on using the beam tomahawk because it is difficult to maintain the joints due to its sloppy weight.
The handle of the beam saber is integrated with the wrist and seems impossible to remove.
If I were to be greedy, I would like the foot to be a little more grounded. The hip joints are only ball joints, so they are stiff and there is little freedom in posing the lower body.
Other than that, it was a good kit that I was satisfied with.
This is the appearance after matting and before weathering.
Did I put too much decal on it? I was concerned about this, but I convinced myself that weathering would make it less noticeable.
Back view. I’m worried that the injection from the apogee motor will ignite the propellant tank.
