1/72 Destoroido Spaltan - WIP

Recommended Posts

Here is my WIP of a Moscato 1/72 Destroid Spartan. Thanks to Viceland for selling it, Gabe Q for the instructions, and Mr. Moscato for creating the kit.

This kit is an interesting challenge. I've never worked with resin before, and I've had to really pull out my bag of tricks: Dremel tool, 3 different types of Xacto knives, sanding sticks, and side cutters. These are the first set of pieces that have gone through initial cleaning and sanding. There is a lot more work to be done. The waist piece had a little too much Dremel, but that actually ended up being a good thing as the center torso and waist fit together almost perfectly.

I'm also glad I followed some advice I found about working with resin kits: wear a respirator. I was not prepared for the amount of dust these pieces would produce, even with wet sanding. I hope to have more soon!

AWESOME! I'm so glad to see someone other than me working on John's kits around here! Resin is a different breed to work with. It's ALL in the parts prep before painting! Can't wait to see more progress on this. B))
