Bubblegum Crisis +++ 1:12 Priscilla "Priss" Asagiri in Hardsuit

New pics for an old kit - a tiny, vintage treasure: this is a wonderful original resin kit from B-Club, easy to assemble and with almost perfect fit of the small parts.

 

Building this hardsuit Priss was not much of a challenge,

even though finding "authentic" colors for the colorful OAV impression was quite a challenge.

 

The overall dark blue, for instance, is a car tone, from Volkswagen, IIRC. It was applied onto a basic coat of primer with a rattle can. All other details were added by brush and with enamels.

 

While the hardsuit looks simple there are many details to be found, especially on the back side, where several grey tones have to be used. But thanks to some good source books at hand beside the video series (e. g. the RPG book from Talsorian Games with tons of material and video stills, plus the BGC manga from Warren/De Jesus which might differ slightly in character design but is pretty true to the original), this problem could be easily solved ;)

 

A tiny figure - but I like the 'action pose', and it's so accurate that I can only recommend to buy original garage kits and no copies, even if they are cheap. You pay elsewhere.
