1/72 Custom 2199 Cosmo Zero
« on: October 31, 2018, 05:54:23 PM »
Hi everyone

As an aside from my Star Destroyer, I pulled this one out of the stash for something quick to build. This kit only took 3 days to build and paint and I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

It's the Bandai 1/72 2199 Cosmo Zero. I've opted for a scheme that, I think, makes it look racy but nasty.

All the metallics are Alclad and the rest is Tamiya paints.

Completely OOB and no lighting

The stand comes with the kit - I just added some wires for interest


































I originally had turquoise for the leading edges but decided that it was to stark a contrast and looked to toy like. I ended up going for Gold Titanium which looks much better

It was a fun build and the only glue it needed was to secure the missiles to the wing

Well, that's all I have but thanks for looking. Feel free to critique

I would never build it that well regardless of time spent.

Always liked the look of those Cosmo fighters, never owned/built any but I do like the look of them. 8)
