Hi Everyone,

First time posting on Model Geek. I usually post over on Armorama, but dabble in some Sci Fi stuff occassionally.

Here's some pics of my last Sci Fi project, a Bandai Cosmo Zero from the StarBlazers series. Pretty easy build, though I did have to do a bit of re scribing on the wings. Its pretty much OOB, adding some decals from the spares box to bring a little more realism to the kit. Wish I could find a nice EX brand kit of the same subject! The stand is homemade.

Constructive Comments always welcomed.

















Enjoy!

Hey! Your Cosmic Zero is pretty sharp. I don't see many of them displayed, nice work.

allways like pieces like these and Bandia has a great range in Sci Fi stuff
Your rendering is very subtle and I love what you have done

Great project - love the subject, love the finish - I'd love to do a Model On Display feature of it.

Hello Jim, yes, don't see a lot of these around anymore at all! Thanks!

Ian, thank you. I wanted to do a quick build, so kept the weathering to a minimum, most of it being pre shading.

Scott and David, check your private messages.

Thanks for taking the time to comment everyone!
