This post covers various parts of the further construction of the Eva-03 Technique Impossible kit that require some additional attention. Continue reading “Kotobukiya Technique Impossible Eva-03 – Part 5: Further construction”
As shown in the first part, Kotobukiya provides a full-color sheet showing which parts should be painted in what color, and I also mentioned the indicated colors are sometimes wrong. This is especially the case with the weapons, where comparing the suggested colors with those shown in this image from the EvaGeeks Wiki reveals quite a few differences. A further complication is that I want to use Tamiya Color spray cans for painting, as I do not own an airbrush. Continue reading “Kotobukiya Technique Impossible Eva-03 – Part 4: Color choices”

This is the continuation of my series of Blog posts on building a Kotobukiya Technique Impossible (TI) Eva kit – as is obvious from the title 😉 . When I build a model I generally don’t bother with the order given in the manual, instead grouping tasks and completing as many steps belonging to a task at once. In the case of a TI kit, the kit is to be build layer-by-layer, starting with the inner frame, then the rubber sleeves, then the first resin parts, and so on. I will try to make each blog post about a specific subject, so this one will tackle the inner frame, and the inner frame only (and no resin parts). This covers (part of) steps 1-6 and 8-9 of the manual. Continue reading “Kotobukiya Technique Impossible Eva-03 – Part 2: Inner frame”
The Technique Impossible kits are a series of Neon Genesis Evangelion kits released by Japanese scale model manufacturer Kotobukiya back in the mid- to late 1990s. They are multimedia kits (resin and injection molded parts, rubber sleeves, metal screws, nuts and rod, polycap joints) that have a reputation of being very complicated (true) and very hard to build. As I hope to show in this series of Blogs, the latter is untrue, even though there are some tricky parts. Continue reading “Kotobukiya Technique Impossible Eva-03 – Part 1: Introduction”
