    Another knock-off Kabaya WSTF-sized model kit I assembled and painted.

    This is very tiny, and the plastic is very bad quality. Yes, worse than the others.
    I had to glue some parts to keep them together and have to put an extra piece between the knees to prevent foot detaching and have it to stand.
    It has detachable weapon and a godmaster pilot molded in the front part of the car.
    Well, I used a coat of spray White Skull as primer, Space Wolves Gray, Gore Red, Blood Red, Scaly Green, Adeptus Battlegray and Codex Gray. All by Gamesworkshop.
    Then some coat with Testors Clear and Super glue tu prevent paint from ripping. This, due to the plastic quality, doesn't work very well, but something is something.

    My other WST models:
    Buster & Hydra

    Yes these kits are cool!
    Might Gaine has many in his ebay store. I have purchased many times from him with no problems. The KO Kabaya kits are cheap, but can be useful!

    Visit his store!!

    Resist? More like they repel paint. Paint can't be in the same room as a knock-off Kabaya kit, or it will turn to sticky-flaky sludge.

    Best I've been able to do is use parts of these kits to re-cast pieces I need.

    Yeah, the plastic is tricky. Lacque thinner won't even melt the plastic.
    I painted some parts to do my classics blaster... I just have to be more careful with the finished product.
