I loved this kit when I first spotted it mostly due to its tiny size and complexity. 60 parts and just over 10 cm? Intriguing, and I just love a challenge. After sorting through what seemed an endless amount of cuffs, wings and eye pieces, I decided to pattern her a bit after how I dressed in high school and also the comic book character Death from the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman.
This kit has a surprising number of alternate parts making for endless different possibilities and it seemed a shame to just waste the ones I didn’t want to use on the figure.
I decided to use some of them to mod a little friend for Gisele, so meet Pochi the flying panda!
All hand painted with Liquitex, Delta, and Folk Art artist and craft acrylics. Select pieces shaded with pastels.
Pochi’s fur and some clothing pieces were shaded using a wash technique layering a thinned brown or black in various layers to create the shade desired. That’s what gives the clothing its denim look.
The build of this kit can be a bit challenging and the size is tiny enough to frustrate the most patient detailer, but the many customization options and unique look makes me want to recommend it to everyone!
