Old School Rework

by bookindian

I had been planning on finishing my old S.F.3.D. Fireball that I bought back in 1982, but . . . I started feeling guilty about not repairing the Fang of the Sun “konbattama”, the Roundfacer, Mackerel, and the three Bushman mecha. I took the five relics to the shop this morning and spent the day disassembling, cleaning and reattaching broken parts. Looks like another two or three days before adding battle damage and repainting is complete. I proably wouldn’t have started this rework except that I recently viewed some really great diorama constructs and decided that I should clean-up the mecha and design a decent display for them.

That’s it for today – I’ll post more photos Saturday or Sunday depending on how the repaint if coming along.

Here’s a link that has some very good information about the SF3D Kow Yokoyama originals and the Ma. K. Machinen Kreiger kits.
