1/8 Mari Illustrious WIP

July 10th, 2017

This was my first resin figure kit. She’s built straight out of the box from the fantastic Volks Charagumin kit. The Charagumin kits are similar to Gundam kits in that they’re molded in color with enough parts to make for easy color separation when painting. They also come with eye decals, so that’s the two hardest parts of resin figures taken care of. The fit and casting quality was great, I only used a tiny bit of putty/filler here and there and had to use the blow dryer to bend a couple pieces (the leg stripes). Many little details were hand-painted with Vallejo acrylics. I have since bought two more of these kits. Compared to other resin kits, they’re a bargain for what you get.
