OMG is it hard to get these delicate, feminine details right at this Figma-like scale, especially with somewhat-shaky hands!!!

well, i'm getting there, going to need to CAREFULLY clean the face up,
and soften/fine-tune that facial detail, without messing up what i've already accomplished. Oh God...

one thing is for quite sure; actual MS kits are one hell of a lot easier to get looking just right, especially at a healthy-sized scale like 1/100...

EDIT; Carefully, we're getting there...

And, pretty much Finished.

i might attempt to improve things a little more, but i'm not so sure i can really do much better, at least at this tiny scale...

I admire your talent at painting.  I can't even do panel lining right.  Having to paint a faceup on a model like that (or any other) would result in me just having to write the whole thing off.

I had wanted to get these https://myfigurecollection.net/item/806385 but my understanding is that the eyes are waterslide decals, and I'm horrible with those too.

There's also this https://myfigurecollection.net/item/676236 which comes with pre-done figma style faces, but is otherwise a model kit.  I've come close to ordering that, but it just wouldn't look right without panel lining and a few decals.  @onion31@

I think the Plamax do have eye decals. Since they are 1/20 (not 1/12 as that MFC page claims) it'd be very hard to paint them.

I'm with you on the Megami Device kit. I've sometimes wanted to buy those and I really wanted the Hasegawa Macross SDF-1 kits, but I know I couldn't build them to a level I'd be happy with so I've never bought anything. I used to build model car kits when I was a kid but never really had the skill to build military models.


Now joining the Ranko army...she has arrived!

yeah, i've been building plastic models since i was a boy, barely in their teens, back in the early-90's.

back then, all there was, at least all that was ever readily available to me, was old-fashioned glue-and-paint Japanese Mecha kits,

as well as typical U.S.-made car and military aircraft models, so i spent many years gradually learning the craft the hard way.

 

heck, it wasn't even until my mid-late-teens around 1997 that i got hold of my first snap-fit, no-glue-required GUNDAM kit.

it was 1993 left-over HG 1/100 scale VICTORY GUNDAM "V-DASH GUNDAM" with "SYSTEM INJECTION" molding

so multi-color molded parts could exist on one parts runner straight out of the box.

after years of paint-and-glue hard work, this, well... felt like the FUTURE, and it was hard to ever look back.

today, many, many GUNDAMs under my belt, and, knowing how to utilize water-based TAMIYA paints to best and easiest effect,

i can squeeze better results out of my now carefully-chosen, hand-picked kits than i ever could have dreamed of as a boy...
