RG Sazabi JoJoHobbyNStuff Custom


Introduction

When I completed the build of the RG Sazabi I lavished it with praise in my review. And, after revisiting this kit to finish it I have to say that my opinion still holds true. The RG Sazabi is a fantastic kit, and it may still be the best Real Grade and best version of the Sazabi currently available.

Kit Talk

I reviewed this kit less than a week before we picked up and moved across the country. As a result, it was moved to the back burner as I started working on other kits. Then, one day Shin from JoJoHobbyNStuff asked if I would be willing to paint it for him as a commission. I didn't really have any exciting ideas for this model so I said sure.

Shin picked all of the colors on this kit. It's a little darker than I typically like to go, but the bright 'glowing purple' really helps to liven things up. The purple for reference is Gaia Color's clear purple over a base coat of starbright duralinium. 

The decals I used on this kit are from Flaming Snow Water Decals. I'm not sponsored by them or anything, but I think they make an amazing product.

EVA-00 Evangelion Prototype TV Version


Introduction:

As the name would suggest Evangelion Unit 00 was the very first operational Evangelion. However, as a prototype, it was not actually intended for combat. During the events of the story Unit 00 is upgraded to have the iconic shoulder pylons and Unit 02 style armor plates at this point the unit also received the blue color scheme.



Speaking of which if you purchase either of these kits through the Amazon links on my site, Amazon will provide me with a tiny percentage that helps me to things keep running. The best part is, it doesn’t cost you a dime! So consider supporting me with a purchase through Amazon today!
