FFR-31MR/D スーパーシルフ ”雪風”。 1/72スケールレジンキット、プラッツから。
My latest completed build. A FFR-31MR/D Super Sylph, “Yukikaze”, piloted by Rei Fukai. 1/72 scale resin kit from Platz. From the Japanese animation “Battle Fairy Yukikaze”, and book “Yukikaze” by Chohei Kambayashi.
This kit also contains a TARPS reconnaissance pod, and a choice of AAM-1 or AAM-3 missiles. I myself went with a pair of each.
This was probably the easiest resin kit I’ve put together. Very minimal clean-up to do, and at least on my kit, no pinholes whatsoever. I do have a couple of gripes, though. The painting instructions are very hard to understand (I actually had to print out pictures of Bandai’s 1/100 scale kit to figure out how to properly paint it), and the cockpit detail is absolutely zero. All you get are two solid chunks of clear resin that you’re supposed to paint to your favorite level of opaqueness. Other than those two items, I highly recommend this kit, especially if you’ve never tried to build resin before. This would be a good starter kit to try out!
The hardest part of the build? Lining up those little stripe decals on the top!!
Kit was completed on September 3rd, 2016.
