Yeah..definately trying to emulate Tani here. I originally didn't catch onto the 1/144 KOG reference..

But I snapped these to show what it's like on the Luminous.

Just the torso and the chest. Love the detailing.

The "tani" pieces for the bottom of the chest.

Gattai!

And finally with the shoulder attached.

Plus two extra shots for shits and giggles.

Looks really nicely done. I'm so glad I didn't waste money on the ST kit.

But you know guys, that method of torso/chest construction is nothing new... Volks AF LED Mirage features similar construction. :P

I don't look at any 1/144 scale Tani's kit. So what did Volks do that is like 1/144 tani's?
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

The way the parts are broken down is similar to that of Tani's KOG V3.

The craftsmanship looks top-notch. Is the kit as massively-proportioned as the KOG V3, or smaller in stature, like the Phantom?

A rare occasion for Fastrun to get a Volks kit.
