Bandai 1/12 Kylo Ren

January 3, 2018 · in Sci-fi · · 14 · 1.8K

This was a fun build. Bandai have kept trying new ways to do capes. Ren's is a soft flexible material that holds really good surface detail. I sprayed it black. Bandai kits are coloured right out of the box but they look a lot better if you paint them. Even painting them the same colour makes them look better. sprayed silver for his mask. Black/grey most elsewhere. He doesn't have a big colour pallet.

My first totally completed of 2018

  1. Not my 'forte', but a nice lookin' rendition all the same.

  2. Very nice indeed Aaron. R2D2 next?

  3. I love it! Keep up the great work.

  4. Unusual model. If you want to make the model a bit more visual interesting you may try dry brushing some bits using slightly lighter shades of "black" to give some depth to detailing.

    • I did use a light grey dry brushed on the back of his robe. he is 1/12 so decently large. I think I would have preferred to use my airbrush for the purpose but it was packed away.

  5. I'm afraid that Sci Fi isn't my thing, although I was a fan of the early Dr Who programmes. Whatever, I can appreciate the work and effort put into this model, thanks for sharing with us.
