Here's what I've been messing around with lately. It's a 1/144th scale resin kit from Wave. As you can see, this kit was cast in three different colors for those who do not paint.

This is how the completed kit looks like. Hopefully mine will look close to it :P

This is a free pose kit, so I've thought about pinning the kit in to a more interesting pose. I couldn't think of anything interesting so I went with an ordinary standing pose. Found problem with some of the joints, so they'll have to be dealt with later.

Today, I spent quite a bit of time trimming and sanding a piece of spare clear resin from another kit to form a transparent cockpit. With a little more fine sanding and some metal primer, it'll become fully transparent. Once it does, clear blue will be sprayed on.

Wow!

That's cool even unpainted.

Wave is really smart with their marketing: it's like FSS for Gunpla Snappers who are ready for a little challenge  :D

(not that anyone here is a snapper :l33t: ;)  )

I wonder how good the casting is.  Is it possible to do a 'no paint' on this?

Jack: I'll snap a photo of the box for you tonight.

The casting is pretty good, but not perfect. I found pin holes on some of the parts...You can see the difference between a "no paint" and a painted kit here:

Thanks! :)

I think the drawing on the box is perhaps the only good thing about getting the original FAC version of this kit :P .

And as you've requested, the head height for this kit is at 15.5cm.

There's a recast available for the original FAC kit.

I don't think the newly released WAVE kit (based off the FAC, done by the same sculptor, but the parts have been broken down more) has been recasted yet?

Decors will know more.

Same here, I don't think Wave's version of the Last Junchoon is available in recast. Only the original FAC version is available in recast, which had problems that Wave did address when releasing their own version of it.

I'm thinking we might have made a mistake letting Winston keep the FAC kit.. with Syujyu working for WAVE now, and WINDFALL doing the designs for the new Gundam series..

I still intend to make moulds out of the FAC, if only for myself.

Now, if you fellows want to trade your kit for mine, it's fine, too.

A mistake?  What means it, precious?
