I've recently overcome a bout of the dreaded hobby malaise/painting block/burnout- I'd sit down and pick up a brush but I'd hit the wall within minutes, even a humble Night Goblin seemed to be an impossible task.
Somehow this led to me digging out a model kit that I've had gathering dust for years and finishing it off in about 4 days.
Here's the box:
It's my all time favourite "Mecha", and is articulated.
I used citadel paints ( Administratum and Eshin Greys, Mechrite Red, Evil Sunz Scarlett) to paint it and is actually the first substantial model kit I've ever built.
It may not be oldhammer but the kit and anime itself are from the mid 80's.
Keeping with the Macross theme, here is a little wind up, walking Minmay doll that I built and painted a few years back
