2013 wasn't my most prolific year, but I neves stops to build kits. This is my last model, the Hasegawa's Elintseeker.

Not much to say, always is a great pleasure to build a Hase kit.

About the weathering, I prefer not to make it in fighters, I like to see them in pristine condition.

In the last picture, I tried to get the same angle that the Tenjin drawing.

Thank you for watching!

Simply gorgeous! Flawless execution. Thanks for satisfying my need to see a beautiful model (when I can't build any of my own).

BTW, what's that stand you're using, it looks great!

Thank you guys for your words. Cheng, the display is made by Platz, and you can get it in HLJ or Hobbysearch:

It has magnets so you don't need to make holes. In this case, the Elintseeker don't have a regular or simetric base, so the instalation of the metalic plates was a little tricky, but I really like the look. With the paint problem caused by Flightpose displays, I decide to replace all my display bases for this one. And you're right, the look is great, and you can adjust the angle too.

Thanks! So do you stick those plates right onto your paintwork on your model?! or are they meant to me inside the the model?

Metal plates comes with adhesive tape, with is fixed on the surface. Next time I'll try to put metal parts ir magnets inside the kit, but in this case I started the kit before to get the display base

Reno, after finish my YF-21, I want to make a step by step thread, but I still don't decide which model to make... Maybe I'll start a poll!

Petar, I'm in a transition point... Due some adhesion problems (I did a thread about it some weeks ago), I'm changing to mr. Color paints. I found a web site in Hong Kong with a great stock of these paints, so I'm increasing my stock rapidly. The page is www.sealmodel.com

Sincerely, I don't know who's under the helmet!

Sorry Reïvaj for the answer delay! The display base have a ball joint so I don’t think that have the strenght to support a toy. May be if you glue the ball...

Thanks for your words guys!

When I sculpted her, it was Misa that I was going for…. but it's Cool8or's girl now!

Sincerely, I don't know who's under the helmet!

haha, thanks guys! yeah the figure looks pretty slim. Misa just needs to slap the front pilot and she'll be in DYRL character!
