Kotobukiya 1/144 Aura Battler Bastole

Recommended Posts

I hit the [backspace] key accidentally when I almost complete the post so I lost all my input in a second :fraidnot:

So I'll link the images first and then I'll add the description next day :chair:

Description below:

This is an old resin kit has been in my collection over 20 years. The kit is sculpted by famous sculptor Takeya Takayui. Who is a talent of monster and character design. This kit actually was a conversion of a mecha from 80s animation "Aura Battler". The kit is around 80mm high and casted in grey color resin. The sculptor actually turned this mecha into more organic from and lifeful instead of a battle mecha.


You can compare the look between the animation and the kit itself.


I sprayed Vallejo black primer, and then white primer for highlighting.


Before painting the details i used Vallejo wash to define the recess area and shading.


To be continued ...
