Let’s Build: Pacific Rim Model Kit, Part 2

While wrapping up this snap-fit Pacific Rim model kit, we talk about custom modding toys, building dioramas, and the evaluate how this kit compares to a Bandai snap-fit model. Overall, we’re pretty impressed with how it holds up! Thanks so much to Darrell for joining us this week. Check out his YouTube channel and look forward to future collaborations!

  1. I’m super excited to see what Darrell does with the diorama. That’s a rabbit hole that I want to go down eventually for my Gunpla builds. The thing about Gunpla that I’m left wanting about is how difficult it is to tell their scale without some kind of reference (yes, they come with tiny figures, but those are almost impossible to see on the shelf anyway). They almost necessitate having a diorama in order to grasp their scale.

    In any case, I thought I’d just put in my word about how much I appreciate these model build/paint videos. You have at least one user who watches them religiously 🙂

  2. Looking forward to seeing Darrell’s final finish with this model and also what sort of scene he creates for it.
