Crusher Joe Fighter 1 - 1/72 Hasegawa
« on: January 03, 2020, 02:46:53 AM »
First in the new year :D
After a temporary transition to the dark, so-called real side of modelling I'm coming back the real world is for the weak :D

"Crusher Joe" is an older anime but in 2019 Hasegawa decided to make models of vehicles from this cult series.
I recently received one of them, a fighter named "Crusher Joe Fighter 1". the model is in 1/72 and can be folded without glue. It's a "shake the box and pull out model" kit. It has interchangeable elements, even after finishing you can replace the gear and display with closed or extended , open cockpit etc. The details are astonishing.
Painting as usual Mr. Hobby. Weathering is done with eye pencils and Ammo Mig. At the end of the build Microscale Kristal Kristal for light lenses and the satin cote from the same company.
Hope You'll like it :)

Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

The subtle yet perfectly proper weathering is the icing on the cake of this one for me.

Well done, Artoor!

Good looking build! I hope Hasegawa does one of the 'bad guy' fighters from the movie - they're pretty cool, too.

I'm not familiar with the show, but the model looks good.
