Crimson Fist Anniversary Model

Hi everyone,

I just received the latest Crimson Fist Anniversary Model in the post yesterday, and I thought to share it with the community.  I wont be showing the box art since it has already been discussed and shown over the net.

We all know the fame of Finecast, so I am not going to go into a rant about the line, but I will say a few words about the kit I received.

All in all, I am surprisingly pleased with the quality of the model.  There were hardly any bubbles or miscast parts or pieces, and the definition was good.

Since this was a limited piece, I was afraid it might not be replaceable if it was defective.  At least that is not a problem.

The only quirk are the flat surfaces which seem slightly wrinkled. Nothing that cannot be sorted out with a bit of fine sanding, but still - it is a hassle.  The other point I'd like to make are the mold pour entries.  I think that some of them are a bit too thick and positioned wrongly.  This can cause some inadvertent damages if cut without extra care.

Other than that I would have preferred if they stuck completely with the original artwork and integrated the plasma pistol into the arm, instead of giving the model a plasma pistol.  In my opinion the artwork looks way cooler!

So, I can safely say I am quite happy with my purchase, and I might just be interested in doing a small vignette with it, adding a few models to simulate a section of the artwork. That's all until next time.

Farewell and good health,
