1/100 Kshatriya Neograde Version | Resin Kit | Straight Build Review

Finally got the guts to try and do a straight build review on our 1/100 Kshatriya (Neograde Version). What we have is the colored cast version made by G-System-Best. When we say straight build for this one, we built it WITHOUT PAINTING any single part. It is basically fitting and sanding parts (if necessary) to see how it will look together. In our case we just used PVA glue to put the parts together. We do not have the equipment to do a paint job so it will stay like that for quite some time. Luckily, because it is already colored cast, we have a rough idea on how the final kit will look like. Please be reminded that this is our first attempt on resin kits… It was fun and challenging to do… ^_^

Resin kits have this sharp smell… I think it is from the chemical used to create the cast.

Just to be sure, better equip yourself some mask with air filters.

Eventually the smell will go away. Or maybe you could open the box for a few days to let the smell go away before you start working on the kit

COLORED CAST

when you mention resin kits, the first thing that comes to mind are YELLOW/BEIGE kit pieces

luckily what we got was cast in color

Some parts have numbers under them. Especially if they seem to look identical and which side it goes is very important.

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (10)

 

Details are good…

Starting with the TORSO

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (13)

 

 

Resin kits are usually consists of solid pieces

and if you have nub marks in Bandai model kits, we have POUR STUBS or POUR PLUGS in garage kits

My alexan side cutter proved to be a big help

what a place to have a pour stub

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (20)

 

 

 

its messy just removing these

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (21)

 

 

my first fitting issue… needed to trim down some parts

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (22)

 

 

 

also, if the side cutter was having a hard time removing the pour stubs, you may need to do some wet sanding…

you wet sand so that the resin dust will be wet, it won’t go airborne and it won’t go into your lungs…

finally… sanded and trimmed down…

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (29)

 

 

 

 

Now after sanding and trimming down the parts to make sure they fit nicely…

You need to wash the pieces…

1. these removes some chemical residue on the parts that sometimes causes paint, putty or epoxy to not stick properly.

2. removes dirt as well especially after you sanded the parts

 

 

you just need to soak it in water with detergent…

some use baking soda… or a ready made soaking agent specially produced for resin kits…

but since we are not painting it, detergents will do fine for now…

air drying

PUTTING it together….

 

 

I used PVA glue to hold the parts together… basically it is used when you are planning to disassemble something like this in the future

 

pros:

1. can be easily removed

2. good for testing purposes… like seeing alignment and fittings

3. cheap to use

4. dries clear

5. can hold heavy pieces when dried properly

 

cons:

1. take 8-12 hours to fully cure

2. runs a lot… too thin…

3. looks messy at first

I was missing 4 pins to connect to the funnels… there are 24 funnels and I only have 20 pins…

So I decided to just distribute the funnels with missing fins to the four binders

the kit can be lifted by one hand on the crotch area

I added a straw stand as well on the back (can be removed if wanted)… safety precaution… don’t want it tilting backwards…

So I tried attaching the binders! Yehey it was a success!!!

then when I came back home in the afternoon… the binders were drooping on the sides…

like Kshatriya was out of energy… I had to remove the arms so I could work on the weight issue of the binders

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (91)

 

my solution was to add a piece to help lift the binders… PVA glue didn’t work… I used super glue instead

1-100 Kshatriya Neograde Version Colored Cast Resin Kit Straight Build Review (92)

 

got those pieces from some spare 1/100 parts

********

 

It took us around 2 weeks to build…

drying or curing time of the PVA glue was the part that took most of our time. It was really fun and an interesting experience.

We were amazed at how big this garage / resin kit is

Details are really nice! loved it all the way

Now we know why bandai is not making an MG of this one yet… It will cost the same price as a PG kit… size of the binders will definitely need metal joints which will make the production cost high.

The final product has some articulation but is very limited… It is meant to stand like that and not do any dynamic poses

A must have for Unicorn series fans ^_^

  1. Very nice with so much patience to build 🙂    and I love the metal funnels too…. What about the smell? Is it addictive like when you buy new rubber sandals and new school bags when we were kids? LOL!! Well… I never had a resin kit, do they have the same sizes? What’s the smallest size for a resin kit?
