  1. I know what you mean. I think there should be versions of kits like this that are just frame, designed for display as such without the connecting parts or blank bits that would get covered with armour.

  2. This is insane, a true work of art. I’ll steal some of these for my wallpaper if you don’t mind. 😀

    Did you airbrush every part separately?
    Did you assemble most of the frame, with out the silver parts, AB that, and then do other parts separately?
    Did you dry brush some of the parts?

    I’m just building Sazabi this week, to see how it will look, thinking of disassembly later and doing a paint job of the inner frame, any advices?

    1. So yes, every part is dealt with individually. I snip each part off the runner, snip the nubs, take a craft knife to the nubs and sand if necessary. I then use alligator clips on sticks to hold each piece to be undercoated (if necessary) and then paint each one individually with the airbrush.

      I sometimes use the Tamiya weathering master for some dry brushing yes. I actually did that extensively on the inner frame of my PG Zaku II, and on Sazabi it’s mostly just on the edges of some of the armour pieces – I didn’t do any on the frame. I did use a fair bit of masking for the frame to do the brass sections though. I also used some Tamiya smoke, hand painted to darken some sections.

      If you’re building for later disassembly, just be careful to trim some of the pins so you can pull it apart with damaging the pieces! But I guess that’s why I paint first and assemble last….
