LEO SPACE TYPE
I’ve seen a lot of awesome builds done with this kit so far, so I decided to make my own version before the inevitable flood of P-bandai Leo variants. For this build, I used the color scheme used for the Leo space type. I’m pretty pleased with the way this build turned out, though I did get a pretty bad frosting effect spraying topcoat on the shield. Lesson learned: never spray paint in high humidity.
I really dug the purple colors which gave it a more unique look even if Leos tended to blow up en masse on the TV show from stray beams. It’s easy to see why this kit is well received; a cheap price point and simple build make it ideal for practicing painting or even building an entire army. Kit review and build details following the image gallery. Enjoy!

Looking forward to it! I’m expecting lots of leos spontaneously exploding from stray buster rifle shots
