BigGrin Hi All

Decided to do a festive build this year namely the 'Winter Mute' kit from Wave. This kit was produced just for the Japanese market a couple of years back but a few always seem to slip out of Japan and lucky me I managed to get one. The kit consists of two 1/20 scale models of the Gladiator,Snowman and a santa/mechanic figure [ I think she is a girl]. The kit itself is nicely moulded with no flash at all because its a Japanes market kit all the instructions and paint detail cards are in Japanese only but the assembly pictures are easy to follow.

To go with the dio there is a cobbled street base and a pallet with oil/fuel barrels. There is also two winter paint sets and the presision snow kit for the winter effects.

Will be starting this shortly.

An interesting idea Andy. Should be an intriguing build and possibly a window into what Xmas might look like in the future? Cool ThumpUp
