Got my hand on this GK recently. Wow. Detail is great, even the cherry tree rocks. Probably one of the most interesting Sakura figure out there. Really catch the character!

seraph_phoenix7年前#1510439You're welcome ^__^ I didn't realize Beani had replied before me, I was on my phone XD
Eye decals can be very easy to apply. They will likely be on a separate sheet, for you to apply yourself. If that's the case, I recommend picking up a bottle of Micro Sol and Micro Set. I used them recently for decals and they're amazing. One solution you soak the decal in to soften it, then you apply the decal. After that, you apply the other solution and it helps it almost melt onto the model, looking more flat and even. You don't necessarily have to do the second step but it helps a lot. I'd never done decals before and managed to do a large one on a curved surface quite easily, so you could certainly do it. Check a local hobby shop, like Hobby Town USA for the solutions, if you decided to do it.
I build GKs all the time, so I could do a quick decal how-to tutorial video, if you need some help.


That's super kind of you to offer to do that. I've done decals before back in the day on airplane models and the like but I remember they used to tear easily. I've since taken a shot at a garage kit but it's a variety that requires the assembler to paint the eyes his/herself so I don't have any direct experience with "modern" decals (presuming they've changed any).

I've read about Micro Sol and Micro Set but have had no direct experience with either. (It's interesting that you bring that up as I was just trying a few days ago to remember the name when I noticed that the new Branwen figure's decals are shiny and wondered if the shiny level could be tamed down any with the stuff.) I'm definite all for decals seamlessly blending in so it would be a worthwhile investment for sure.

Tsunami3k7年前#1510314Ahh, thank you both for the explanation. So even when they specifically say "unpainted", the nature of this particular line's resin does not necessarily mean "uncolored". Very interesting... I don't mind it being marginally shy of the prototype so long as I can be spared the fear of scarring the figure (and my soul) for life. Worst case I can putty and paint if I find that I'm unsatisfied with an initial test fitting.
Let's hope the eye decal bit isn't an issue either. My Isoroku came with eyes pre-applied. Eyes are too important for me to mess up! ;D

Tsunami3k7年前#1510252It's great to see Sakura finally get treated to a worthy rendition but I'm a bit confused thanks to a diligent friend who managed to sleuth out several anomalies. As far as I can tell, only BiJ seems to indicate that it's prepainted whereas most of the other sites explicitly say unpainted. Even the Volks site says it's unpainted and even suggests paints! And the unpainted vs. [allegedly] painted prices match up for the most part so it doesn't even seem explainable by two version floating around.
I'd love this figure but there's no way I can justify the steep cost for her unless she is at least prepainted. Can anyone shed any additional light on this?

It's a Charagumin garage kit, which is dyed/colored resin. It doesn't need paint, per say, but it's just dyed resin with no shading or highlights...so it will just be plain colors. Little details will need to be painted. There will still be gaps in the fitting and that sort of thing, which requires putty, primer and paunt to cover. So it's best to paint them anyways for a better look.

The Charagumin line are Colour Resin so while they are not prepainted that are mainly the colour they need to be. I hear most people who own them state that you do sometimes need to do some small paint work to get them looking like the prototypes and of course you also have to assemble her which includes applying eye decals (I believe, not 100% on that eye point).

Volks English support seems pretty good so emailing them to clarify would not hurt I think :)

Thankfully with color resin you don't have to paint it. You just have to build it.
I think I'll pass on this- even so. Still, she is a beauty.

Although, if I ever find and play the Gameboy color game of where she is from, I will possibly buy this later on...
