The RX-105 comes out much bigger than your typical 1/144 kit, much more like the size of a typical 1/100. That means there’s enough scale to get in some pretty decent detail.There’s a lot of water slide decals you can put on the kit. I put all the large ones on and most of the smaller ones. There comes a point when I can’t justify putting more on for the amount of effort it takes, and how cluttered it can look.A lot of the parts, like these legs needed masking for the grey sections with the small line detail on them. The decals went over the panel lines nicely without need for any decal softening. The kit comes with a clear plastic stand and these rather interesting forcefield effects parts. The stand plastic is brittle and breaks easily. The gun comes out looking pretty good, but it’s basic in its construction design and needs a good deal of masking to get it looking right while avoiding the dreaded stickers. The Hobbymate supplied metal thrusters are great. They took a little work to add onto the legs, necessitating the trimming down and sanding of the original plastic thrusters. I like how the white panel lines work on the deep blue, especially with the white decals. The sections on the blue that I went over with the Tamiya clear blue stand out nicely without being too over-the-top. There’s a lot of decals to go onto the rear wings and the triangular shoulder wings. A lot of decals! I took my time and lightly top-coated every so often to seal in place the work before I did more on that part so as to avoid disturbing what I’d got right.You can see some small yellow patches that are stickers on the kit that I hand-painted in painted with Tamiya lemon. Because the areas were nicely recessed, this works well and looks neat. It’s nice that the missiles on the shoulder were made as separate parts rather than give the painter a hard masking or hand-painting job.
