msn-00100 Hyaku Shiki (Char Aznable Custom)

1/100 Hyaku Shiki

2 months in the making - my first Master Grade model, the Hyaku Shiki painted in Char's Custom Colors!

I came up with many different color schemes in the planning stage but each one I came up with, I found a similar one had already been done. One that I found hard to find was Red. I began thinking what if Char Aznable kept up his tradition of color schemes when he recieved his Hyaku Shiki from Anaheim Electronics? And so the Char Custom for the Hyaku Shiki was born!

Being my first full attempt at a Master Grade (I have built one before but not painted it as of yet), I decided to make a few simple modifications to the model using option parts.

The following modifications were made to the kit :

  • LED put into the head unit to make the front visor and sensor window glow. The rear of the torso was carved out to house the watch battery to operate the LED.
  • Replaced the leg pistons on the hydraulics with brass tubing.
  • Replaced the power conduits with mesh chain.

The only problems I encountered during the build was the decals. I had alot of trouble with the decals on the rear wings. They kept silvering and whenever I attempted to repair them, I ruined them. I ended up using a few dry transfers to replace the water slides I ruined.
