Thankyou so much.
The Instructions I got with the kit were awful.
They even missed a whole page on the leg construction.

Are they suggesting painting the subsurface armour metal / grey or gold ?
Recasts only comes with the buildup instruction for the kit itself. The colored instruction I uploaded was from the original set of B4 which I won off YahooJapan. I have a set of recast Mighty Series, so if you need the missing portion of the instruction, let me know.

They are suggesting that you paint a layer of metallic color as the first layer below the armor in order for it to show the details better when you apply clear paints on the surface of the armor. Here's a good example of how to paint clear armor kits http://sion0083.hp.infoseek.co.jp/ledb4.htm .

Thanks Sheizzel.

Yeah, if you have a copy of the build instructions for the Hydra that would be really helpful (especially the leg page). You could post it here or mail it to me.

One last question.
Do the instructions recommend a transparent paint for the Hydra ?
It seems the Hydra is the only Mighty series mecha without a pigment...

Thanks again !

Thanks for mailing the instructions.
Much appreciated.

I've started modeling the skeleton.
It's so detailed.
I wonder how they manufacture the originals ?
By hand, maybe prototyping with a computer ?

Mmh there's one here : http://homepage3.nifty.com/wombat_mh/mo ... weken.html
but it looks to be 1/220, not 1/100 like on the toyspress page.

Wombat's calls it "Aweken" (this guy's also doing other scratchbuils MHs, Berlin SR2, Groon...)

I don't think Wombat's 1/220 and the toyspress 1/100 are the same kit, Happy.

And does anyone else find it amusing that this MH has the head of a squid?
