What do you think.

I think its pretty darn cool looking. Obviously a lot of work went into this one as evident in the last pic that really shows off the detail on this Gans. How was the kit to build? Congrats on a good looking Sci Fi model.

Really cool! The weathering effects look "spot-on!" Those SF3D kits look nice when they appear worn and abused.

Nice build!
Always great to see more SF3D/MaK stuff out there. It's what brought the line back from the dead the first time.

The model itself is great, I brought it from Hobby link Japan the model is by Wave(company). I think they are releasing a whole new set so these may be hard to find soon.



The line is almost entirely out of production at the moment, but an all-new tooled Lunar version suit, 1/6th scale suit, and the Kow techniques book are coming soon. So hopefully there will be a SECOND rebirth of the line.

There were 2 sets of dry transfers available at HLJ, but I think only one is left in production/stock.

If not, this time I was smart and stocked up before they went oop.


Be careful, the Mak world is a slippery slope into limited run (One day, Wonderfest only garage resin) kits that while beautiful require a second morgage to buy.
You were'nt using BOTH kidneys anyway, were you? :-)
