Yellow disaster

Gaplant TR-5 [Hrairoo] (19/12/2008)

Took me 4 days to complete this guy. Firstly is the problem with the chrome yellow color, the yellow in the bottle is drying out and I discovered it too late. Fought with the bad paint for almost 1 day. Another reason is because of a family occasion.

I'm really impressed with the details under the skirt armor and amount of verniers of this kit. But its a bit heavy and flimsy when you start posing in. Transformation to fight mode is a hassle and I scratched off some paint while doing so. Had problem making it hold the long rifle as the rifle butt is kind of in the way.

Not really poseable but it looks nice just standing there.


  1. In my case, I had a bottle of fluorescent green paint which turned out to be yellow instead, after buying it from months ago :s

    fluorescent green is supposed to be green instead of yellow right?

  2. Did you buy the paint from a shop?

    I thought you can see the color of the contents through the glass bottle?

  3. yep, bought it from hobby point @ heartland mall. but not myself though, asked my sis to run the errand for it, it wasn't until I was about to do airbrushing(which was like 1/2 weeks later ^^') that I realized that the color looks odd.
