pretty nice for a wave kit.
looks like it’s cast in coloured resin (?)

Yep, cast in two main colors.

No, it is a resin cast kit.

It looks pretty good, the only thing I find kinda weird is the size of those ankle cover things. They are just way too big for my tastes.

Strange that you can make it either as the Smoke Walls version, or sort of a halfway approximate comic version.

Ew. Decals.

I'll be happy to stick with the Volks 1/100.

what replaces those decal at the volks kit?
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Paint :wink:

The wing-icon thingy is sculpted on the Red (there is no such icon on the white), the grining face are marked on the shield.

Though I don't like to say it cuz' any of those kit is a big amount of work, I don't like this one that much. The whole thing lacks cohesion (feet, ankles, legs, waist, torso, head look like part puts together, not as a whole).
Sure it's 1/144 but on the other hand I think the 1/144 Auge Arusqul is the best rendition of this design. So... (or maybe arusqul is "easier", or more suited to be adapted to smaller scale)
