RTKF 1/72 "Legult" Build Ups

Recommended Posts

That came out great! A great build and finish. I can't tell you how many times I have had to mix custom paint for Macross models. That's my only beef with them, all those crazy colors. - MT

It is gorgeous eh! We did a trade, one of the TV VF-1A brownies I was selling for the built Regult.

Looks nice!  :good:

If you get a chance.....can you take some pics of just the Regult kit and the Yamato v2 VF-1A side-by-side?  They look like they scale pretty well....at minimum as well as the HMR Regult and VF-1do...

Regult build ups continue with a new commission build. This time a Scout Pod in custom Subaru WRC colurs :D

I'm still at the cleaning and prepping stage and with a bit of luck I can get this in primer in the next few days.

More work today messing around with the stance to be a bit dynamic. All flex points are pinned with 3mm brass rod for strength  (including the foot base joint). The front toe is raised as a crushed vehicle will be placed underneath it.

More progress pics. Tamiya TS-54 laid down as a substitute for "Zentran Blue". After this hardens I'll mask up for the rest of the otherwise standard colours. Also I got some pictures of the finished base which has been tuned from Australian Red Gum especially for this build. I think it turned out great!

More progress. Grubby weathered engines. The story is that a Zentran team resprayed a scout they found in WRC blue but didn't bother with the rest. There Zentran why would they - if it works why fix it! The metallic blue will stay relatively fresh while everything else will be weathered.20180131_210630.thumb.jpg.534f31e8e8588ad9b6acebe6cf7c5dd7.jpg20180131_212010.thumb.jpg.a7287d8c6be7a31ccd9a182bd405f7e6.jpg20180131_212024.thumb.jpg.8f6ace84e87b506820f7226f27b65264.jpg20180131_212043.thumb.jpg.09408cf385b9233198b967b70876fc60.jpg

Tonight I mocked up the pod to the custom Red Gum base. Pretty happy so far. :D

There is still more work to be done on the legs before I move onto all of the EW kit. Although eventually I am going to have to face up to fixing the paint issue on the top of the body <_<
