    First, you did a great job painting her :). She looks awesome, and I love the gold. :)

    Next, I agree that this is NOT a beginner kit. What they call completed looks like a well sculpted version of one of those wax figures museums sell for a dollar. :/. That is definitely not what they advertised, which was that the kit was 'fully painted', and 'for beginners'.
    It's missing most of the colors. And a lack of instructions about the eyes would cement that this is not a beginner kit. I wish kits would stop doing this. My brother bought one of those Fate kits that claim the same thing. It also came missing half of the details and still told people who bought it they needed to paint parts AFTER they bought it. Though at least that one was mostly painted.

    I originally ordered this kit, and cancelled it once I found out they lied about the painting. I think that was the only time AmiAmi didn't state the usual 'too many cancellations will result in a ban' statement, and just cancelled it, given the manufacturer false advertised big time. Given they probably get this a lot, I'm wondering how much longer this manufacturer will keep claiming these are beginner kits that are finished, given the stores selling them must complain to them a lot about it due to the cancellations?

    At any rate, hopefully there will be some non-GK or model kit Deedlit figures soon enough. While this one is nice once it's actually painted, a full one would be nice for people with no GK or model experience.

    Thanks for the review/post, it was interesting to read, and I liked seeing the steps provided and finished product.

    Nice Deedlit you have there! Gold was worth it, looks very intense!

    As for such kits in general... I think these are for beginners in figures, not plastic kits in general. So no wonder they didn't extend a decal instruction since most people who work with plamo know their decals well, including stickers, dry transfer and water slide and reverted water slide.

    Still, MF's decals are very nice and thin, you don't usually get such quality with scale models and robots / robot girls. These are very thin and easy to cover with just one layer of sealant :3


    And I have yet to find a real, proper, quality beginner kit like this. Stuff that even Volks, a renowned GK manufacturer, markets as beginner kits is in fact not a good place to start if one has little idea of GKs in general — due to sheer amount of parts and their special brandmark: horrible seamlines in awkward spots.

    View spoilerHide spoilerIf someone asks me about a beginner kit, I have a few circles with quality casts I can recommend, also mentioning: not too old and 10-15 parts max. Oh, and here's some guides where to start (link), they don't have instructions )

    general-radixVor 2 Monaten#80673169That's a beautiful paint job! :D
    (Maybe it's a "beginner" line in the sense of "if you already have basic to intermediate art skills but haven't touched a GK yet"...)

    galablueVor 2 Monaten#80672726I think you made this awesome! Your paint job is really beautiful and I love how you did her eyes, I think it gives her a coy and sensual look. Great job on the tiny gold details.

    Thank you! The eyes are actually an alternative set of decals, but I did apply a solution to them to make the transparent parts disappear entirely. :)

    ddarkoVor 2 Monaten#80672714What an awesome job! It looks better than the picture on the box :D!!! Love it!
    I was contemplating getting this one for training to do kits, but (rightly, in my case) decided against it because I would have surely botched it lol.
    P.S. Did you pain the eyes btw? That looks incredible, especially given how small it is at 1/20 scale.


    Thanks so much! :D
    It definitely isn't for a beginner no matter what Max Factory's marketing says lol! I had to use my new micron airbrush just to paint most of this set.
    I didn't paint the eyes. They are decals but really, really small decals. Super tedious to apply on if I had to be quite honest. I did use a solution to help the decals blend with the rest of the paint however, so that's why they look painted on rather than decals. :D
