Weathering your White Tiger Frame Arms Model Kit

Hey everyone! Mr. Arigato here with an update from the Frame Arms Official Blog. Did you see our blog on Shadow Tiger? We’ve had a lot of fans asking us about how we made the paint masters for White Tiger and Shadow Tiger look so good. Well, the answer is weathering! We don’t usually weather our models for the photos of the finished product, but we wanted to do justice to the awesome design by Yoji Shinkawa. In order to guide you through the process, we’ve recruited the help of Endo-san from Robo Samurai, who created the paint master for White Tiger. Enjoy!   —————————————————————————————————————————   Hello, nice to meet […]

Custom Model Introduction: Volt Dagger

Hello everyone! Mr. Arigato here with an update from a new member of the planning team, Futsuo: Hi everyone! Today I’d like to introduce a custom model I made playing around with some of Kotobukiya’s Hexa Gear. Model Name: Volt Dagger Volt Dagger is made from the salvaged parts of a Voltrex that was nearly destroyed in battle. The Voltrex’s Zoatechs capabilities could no longer be used, so its Governor converted it into a high-speed vehicle. (Imaginary Background Story)   Let’s see it from a different angle! (Right Side) (Straight On) (From a Diagonal)   I kept this custom unit rather small in order to match the size of the […]
