Yen Xing, hard model to build?

Post by terminus » Tue Apr 22, 2008 3:26 am

I really really like the Yen Xing model, but looking at it, and from hearing about some reviewers, the Yen Xing model is farley hard to build (due band molds that are deformed and bent). Anyone who has built the Volks 1/100 Yen Xing model could tell me if the molding is bad or good? and is it hard to construct (all those wires in back look insane!). Thanks!

p.s. anyone who's built the 1/100 Volks Hydra Mirage could show me its eyes? every single picture I've seen of it, the Hydra Mirage does not have eyes!

-hope someone replies

Yen Xing is released by Kaiyodo, not Volks.

The original Yen Xing kit is very nicely cast, but it would still be a challenging build due to partsiness and all the delicate details.

If you're talking about a recast Yen Xing from somewhere, then I have no comment.
