I really enjoy building these MK44s. This one different. It's built from a 1/35 scale resin kit and not the 1/20 Hasegawa kit I've been building so far.

The kit was only available at WonderFestival many years ago. The kit only had a few parts so assembly was easy. The only detail work I did was add some metal coil springs for the power pipes and replaced the resin smoke launchers with small aluminum tube and styrene.

The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics. Multiple layers of hairspray technique were used for the chipping. The markings are airbrushed on with Montex masks. The model is weathered with oils, enamels, and pigments.
