As far as I know nothing about this kit would really be a problem for someone who just wanted to paint it themselves... It's kind of hard to explain my reaction. I guess I'd put it like this:Zip wrote:As far as not being friendly for modellers who paint and such, I guess it's the same way as with the RG inner frames. Most painters would like for them to be separate so that they could paint in-between the joints more easily, but that just isn't possible without damaging the frame.
I was wondering if there was a way to slide the hair section onto the head by cutting off the pegs, but it doesn't seem like it'll work due to the parts' structure. Oh, well. Face-masking it is, I suppose.Ryc03 wrote:Looks like I will still need to do a bit of airbrushing on the skintone, since sanding is never gonna hide those seam lines and nub marks completely. but overall it looks good. Ther are always a way to handle those seamlines on the hair section. in the worst case scenario, you can slip a piece of tissue to protect the face, glue the hairs, sand them down and airbrush them, then peel the tissue off afterward.
I can't tell until it is on hand, but at minimum I should be able to do the front pieces as one, the rear pieces by itself, and the ponytail as one piece. Having the front piece by itself is pretty common, so a gap there wouldn't raise much eyebrow. In fact, because Fumina ties her hair back, it means a distinctive separation in the direction of the hair front the ears onward.CKai Cydek wrote:I was wondering if there was a way to slide the hair section onto the head by cutting off the pegs, but it doesn't seem like it'll work due to the parts' structure.

Does yours have any issues with the right leg leaving a gap where it plugs in on the hip?CKai Cydek wrote: I managed to get the very last one off HLJ, and it's...okay. Could be better, but despite my best efforts, I wasn't able to get 100% clean nub removal - those pesky slightly dark discolorations are so damn obvious if you know where to look. The kit looks great when viewed from a foot or two away, though. And the hair seams don't bother me as much as I thought they would - mainly because the kit's pose has Fumina's head tilted with the seams well away from the front.
