Hi All.
I will be starting my next project for KitMaker Network. I will be building the MechatroWego 3 suits and will be using and reviewing the MiG "Space Fighters" paint set.
The kit contains two complete figures. As this is a build blog/review, I will be building one straight out of the box and the second one I will be using the MiG paint set.

I will watch this. My daughter likes snap kits and these look fun.

As this kit contains two complete "robots" and is more geared towards children I decided to build one figure straight out of the box.....no painting or detailing and very little glue.
The sprues are colored so that you can build two figures that are pink and blue as per the instructions, or you can build one completely blue and one completely pink. I opted to follow the instructions.
The kit went together very easily with very little glue. That being said, a younger builder might struggle a little with the instructions...particularly the final assembly.....but with a little help it should pose no problem. They are posible, but will not hold up to being played with.
The next figure will be painted and detailed using the MiG Space Fighters paint set.

Getting started on the second figure. Using the MiG paint set for this one.
This paint has been great so far. Ready for the airbrush right out of the bottle, great coverage and lays down really nice.

Finally got the second figure completed. Its painted using the MiG paint set and slightly weathered.
The paint was great and is airbrush ready right out of the bottle. It lays down really nice and gives nice coverage.
The kit went together great with no glue required. Similar to Bandai kits, the fits are so tight that if you paint the kit, you will need to mask or clean the connection points for a good fit.
Overall, fun kit thats easy enough to build with the kids
