FRX-99 Rafe “Hammerhead” UAV (1/144, Platz)
So many nice models from the past history here, so maybe something else from the future …
An upcoming UAV Multi-Purpose Fighter FRX-99 Rafe “Hammerhead”. Note those missiles above and below wings. (The coin only gives an indication of the small size of the model).
FRX-99 Rafe Hammerhead, (1/144, Platz, 2013)
The feature-rich model is a very small kit from Japanese Platz. The cast is flawless, thin and flexible plastic. Maybe a bit softer than the average. Construction instructions are well-illustrated. Comfortable to build because the fit was good. Quality decals and there are more than one hundred of them, even though the model is smaller than 10 cm (4″). I left all unnecessary “no step” “danger danger” markings out (robots and self-repairing devices does not need such warnings, autonomous war time…).
Primer using Mr Paint, painting Vallejo acrylics. Oil wash (oil+odorless turpentine) and very slight leakage and weathering.
Silent flyby on a beatiful summer day.
