Not bad eh? For the decals, I’ve used the combination of some left over ones and some that it originally comes with. I used the left over from other kits’ waterslides, got the similar ones and used it instead. It still works IMO.
I’m quite proud of my build for this kit. My only regret is the decal I accidentally stripped-off from its head. Now it only has one, but it ain’t too bad. I can overlook at it. Besides, white decals in this kit, isn’t that obvious when it’s placed on the orange parts. Another thing, I kinda wish that I painted the scope of the rifle to green instead of red. Obviously, it’ll look a lot better in green.
The build itself is fun. IU enjoyed the whole process mos specially because the kits isn’t complicated.
I painted the piston like thingies underneath the feet with chrome silver and they don’t look that good, with all honesty, besides the point that you won’t be seeing it 99% of the time.
