Hmm Geno Saurer WIP Phase 1!

Genosaurer01Taking a break from my gundam build I decided to start on my HMM Geno Saurer…. this is one bad assed zoid that I bought a few months back at $89 SGD from Latendo. A very good price for a rare Hmm Zoid. Fell in love with this kit when I first saw others displaying online. This is the highend master model or HMM for short by kotobukiya. I previously build a saber tiger from this line an I am very impressed with this series details but also posing capabilities. But with all these details comes with lots of loose joints. I hope to iron out these issues here and also I’ll be flat coating and try experimenting dry brushing with different kinds of paint. ^^

Very detailed art work in the manual. Love looking at these sketches ^^

Genosaurer04OMG! So many parts just for half a head….

Genosaurer05One word of advice, sort out which sprues you are using first. Less time spend on finding the right sprues and more time for doing the actual model ^^

Now to use the ‘ Magic finger technique’ on the nubs ^^

  3. Oh man, this brings back so many memories. XDDD I love Zoids, and Genosaurer is one of my favourites. I love the level of detail in the HMM line, but I don’t have space for any more. xD
    I built a couple of Zoid models myself, but they’re from Tomy, so they’re not as detailed. Still, I can kind of relate to the amount of work needed to assemble one Zoid model. xD”;
    Can’t wait to see more progress shots too. All the best with building it! 🙂 I’m sure it’s going to turn out beautiful.

    • Haha thanks for the encouragement ^^ will do my best for this kit! This is also one of my favourites hee ^^ But the Tomy ones you can wind em up and walk. Retro toys got to love em.
