HASEGAWA OPERATION OMEGA SPACE TECHNO X (1985)

Postby Tasuke » Wed Apr 28, 2021 2:02 pm

i found an avenue to acquire the 2019 reissue of this vintage 1985 HASEGAWA kit for a reasonable price, so i jumped right on one.

as a kid in the 80's, i saw ads for the YOUNG ASTRONAUTS U.S. market reboxing of this kit in the paperwork included with the MONOGRAM YA kits
my mom was having my dad build up to decorate my room with.

30+ years on, -feeling quite nostalgic indeed these days for my space-case childhood-
i feel i need my very own crack at this unusual, semi-Sci-Fi-themed model;

still waiting on this crazy thing, probably for at least a month more, as cheap surface shipping from Japan currently means the literal SLOW BOAT...

now i'm all geared up for a complete nostalgia blast from my (fairly-typical-for-the-1980's) NASA-kid childhood,

HASEGAWA was lazy, only one RMS arm was provided, -in deployed position- so i was forced to cut and reposition;

general assembly complete, plenty of painting yet to do;

tiny, compared to the massive 1/72 MONOGRAM and REVELL examples that my father built me back in the 80's, but very accurate and precise...

mostly finished with this 35 year-old (2019 reprint of a 1985 release) kit.

some general touch-up and detailing on the landing pad assemblies and a few other areas is all that remains...
