Default EFS Kirishima

This is Bandai's 1/1000 model of the Kirshima, Okita's flagship in the first episode of Space Battleship Yamato 2199. She is the lone survivor from First Fleet after the Battle of Pluto that kicks off the series.

It is a really nice kit, and a quick build too. I started this exactly a week from now to the day, and it is the fastest model I've ever put together. Very enjoyable too. It comes molded in color, so it does not have to be painted and the modular design mostly clicks into place. Mostly. Highly recommended, although by now these are a little hard to get for a good price.

I don't know if HLJ is going to restock it, but the exact same kit is going to be released on March as the Yuunagi, with different color schemes and decals.

When I do the next though, the black end-caps for the fins will be glued on before anything else. Afterward, and with no mounting tabs, they are incredibly fiddly to apply without ruining the paint with glue. I knocked one off at least four times!

Now the pics!


















Thanks for looking!

Nice and clean, although I prefer more
weathering. Cool base too.
