The As5E3 Leynos 1/35

Finally I can share with you my 1/35 scale Leynos Diorama.

I finished this kit at the end of last year but could not blog about it because I entered it in the HLJ Sci-Fi Modelling Competition 2012.

I managed to get 3rd Place in the Advanced Category XD

The Model kit was made with the intention that it was a very old Mech, the remain of a Battel long ago. After the war had stopped it remained in the ruins of the city and was forgotten. Unable to be of any use it went into stand-by-mode waiting to be discoverd, reactivated and to be used once again in Battle.

This is always a theme that I have been driven too. And something you will find in most of my kits.

The Dio is made from Styrofoam, Balsa Foam,Balsa Wood, and some Clay. The Plants are actually used for basic Room decoration. The rest, the vine and Moos are basic material for modell trains or any other scale models.

The kit itself is not really modified I added maybe 4 little Kotobukiya parts but thats it. I used the Salt weathering technique, Camouflaged was done by Masking. Rust streak and and pigments were made by brush after the decals were added.
