Resin cast. No decals
This is Legend's 1/9 kamikase bust. The quality of the casting is fantastic, with no air bubbles. Details are very nice and not affected by the resin molding blocks. Bellow you can see the parts you get in the box. They came in a sealed bag with bubble plastic for protection. My sample came with the jacket collar broken in several small pieces. The part is very fragile. I saw a review on the web of the same kit where the modeler removed this detail. I decided o fix the bust using some epoxy putty. Not an easy task, but it worked fine in the end. Painting was done with several different brands of acrylic paints. A coat of future followed by another one of Humbrol's matt coat finalized the job.
