As noted by my initial 00 WiP, I’ve already jumped in and started on the head. Let’s start off easy and ramp it up from there. So let’s take a look, shall we?
You may note the led there, unfortunately, while it’s strong enough for the eyes, it’s obviously quite lacking for the front and back clear sensor areas, so for those who want to have some color there, you may want to look at painting or doing something there. One thing I do like is the vulcans are made of two pieces, with the black standing out a bit more than just one white piece.
And before you know it, the head is complete. Overall impression looks good, so I went ahead and panel lined it. There’s one decal for the head, but I’m debating on waiting for the most likely water slide release. Again, kudos to Bandai for never releasing water slides at the same time with the kit.
And with the head done, I jumped straight into the beam rifles, as I have a tendency to hit weapons block if I leave them for last. As is, they are both fairly simple to build with only slight differences allowed for the combining feature.
Closer look at how it comes together
With rifles out of the way, I feel relieved knowing I won’t have to drag myself to do them at the end. So far at this point, all is simple, and I’ve managed to use up 1 of the 55 runners. Now 54 more to go. Next up, jumping around again, we move on to the backpack and torso.
