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!
