Elyn Hobby 1/100 Kshatriya - Torso and Arms Complete

An overwhelming sense of doom.

That's what I'm feeling right now. While I should be pleased that this build is now officially a third of the way complete and things turned out okay I can't get past the fact that the kit's LEDs are royally fucked.

Before I get into that, how about a few pictures...

Elyn Hobby 1/100 Kshatriya - Torso ready for top coat

After a couple weeks of prep and paint the torso is ready for top coat and final assembly.

I think I spent more time prepping the kit for paint than any other I’ve worked on up until this point. I feel like every piece on this kit has flashing issues. Some of the problem areas I didn’t notice until after the first coat of primer. Some I didn’t notice until after I had finished painting and started on detailing. Hopefully the ones I wasn’t able to fully clean won’t be too noticeable when all is said and done.

A look at the 'Art of Gundam' box art

Within the past couple years Bandai has started releasing exclusive kits at various toy & model expos in Japan. They're typically slightly modifications of existing kits using special coatings or clear parts. Generally their boxes are just the standard box art with a bit modification or a logo for differentiation. This year's Art of Gundam expo releases featured several kits never released in a clear format with, what I believe to be, a stunning box design.
