Zephyr
MDC'S Zephyr Bust.

by: Paul Anstee [ HOFPIG ]


Originally published on:

The kit consists of three pieces of solid grey resin: the main torso and head, a shoulder pad, and a base/plinth to display it on. The kit itself is free from bubbles and no defects that I could see. The subject is very nice, the surfaces well-detailed and the smooth sections are exactly that. The bust stands at 4 inches including the display base.

The display base itself is about 2 inches and is designed to look like a chunk of architecture rising from the ground.

The rear of the head is cast with a variety of cables and wires, which are either smooth or patterned to represent more of a braided cable.

The beauty of this kit is the fact that only by painting it will it become obvious what you have turned it into. You could paint it in a military pattern to represent some sort of drone soldier, bright yellow to represent a construction robot, or any number of other colours as the choice is entirely your own.

SUMMARY
Highs: Nice subject. Nice display base.
Lows: My only real gripe is the fit between the pin on the display base and the bust could be better as it is far too loose and will require some filling or packing out to ensure a good fit.
Verdict: Well cast with some honest detail.
