God Knows…

Remember around July last year, the whole anime community went gaga over this kit from a sculptor who went under the name BUBBA? Well, I went and got one of the 200 original kits which he sold at WF (thanks Mayu!!!)

Almost a whole year later, I’ve finally managed to finish her. Just don’t ask what took me so long…

For those who are interested, The bunny costume was painted in a midnight blue colour and not black like the original (I felt that black was a little boring) but the colour doesn’t show up too much in the pics. It can be either a blessing or a curse depending on how you think. The accessories were purchased as part of a Macfarlane toys figure of Jimi Hendrix. So, now I have jimi missing his amp and mike stand…

The Mic stand was extended, otherwise it would only reach the naval. but otherwise, everything else was pretty much by-the-book (what book, I’m not sure). Any questions? feel free to ask and I’ll try to answer them.

And yes, I am aware of the recent flood of official kits on Yahoo Japan Auctions since the re-release .

More pics after the jump

The guitar was by far the hardest thing I have had to paint yet, but in the end I think it turned out ok. There are a lot of things I wanted to do with it to improve it all, but unfortunately, my skill level isn’t high enough yet…

    Thanks. She took me a long time to complete tho, but it was worth the effort. I’ll post my gundam collection at a later date.

    o.o that Haruhi is amazing….and the guitar is so shiny too >.< and is that real fishnets? or are my eyes playing tricks on me…?

  • gundamjehutykai

    No, they are real. The original Kit didn’t have the fishnet design sculpted in (otherwise it would be a simple matter of drybrushing the stockings to get the same effect) so I, Like the other Haruhi owners, had to go out, buy material and do a cut and stick job to get the effect.
