Tried making a Wave 1/144 Engage SR-1

Post by levrin » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:48 am

It's been a long time since I made anything more complicated than a HG Bandai kit, but I decided to give Wave's plastic Engage SR-1 a try. It turned out surprisingly not terrible, though I've been reminded that I hate painting and I have a really hard time with water slide decals. As a side note, there were a couple alternate parts for mounting the sword on the back of the shield, but it looked rather permanent so I decided against it.

It's looking nice. Makes me wish I had more time for model building.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

Do a bit of clean up around the Fatima Cockpit and the inside vents of the shoulder pauldrons - that will go a long way to making it hand-f***ing-some!

Thanks for sharing!
