: Missile Phalanx Diorama - Bandai 1/87
: Antonio Sobral May 22, 2018, 11:29:20 PM
Hi guys

A little diorama around the Bandai Missile Phalanx kit.

I slightly "changed" the scale, from the original 1/100 to the more traditional 1/87 (HO), so I could use some Preiser figures.

I am also changing some parts of the original kit, as you can easily see :)

A favorite, and one the first fighting suits I ever built back around 1984 or so. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

I have altered the head and the left "arm" and dis some more personal fine-tuning.

Fortunately the boring part is mostly over! :)

Can't say giant robots are my "thing" but this is very well done, Antonio! :smiley:

The figures add a sense of scale often missing with these types of builds & you managed to use muted colours instead of the excessively bright tones I've come to expect from this genre. :smiley:
