Old Zoids photos #32: Hayate Liger and mini Hayate Liger
My Hayate is STILL in bits and partially painted. I’m not that happy with the paint and should really just strip it all (it’s acrylic, so not too hard), prime it outside once the weather warms up more, and start over. I will make it pink and purple glittery, dammit. For the glory of the Princess Zoids. (I even have a set of silver waterslides of its markings/stickers waiting for it thanks to Darwock on ZP, and if I don’t use them, I will be forever guilty!)
Frustratingly, pretty much all of Hayate is soft, irritating to paint plastic, with the silver being super soft safety plastic even though the blades already had goofy safety tips. Recommendations for primer that can actually hang onto that stuff, anyone? I’ll even take spray enamel or lacquer, I’ll just have to get a mask and use it outside. White primer preferred, given it’ll (someday…) be getting shiny colors over it.
Mini Hayate, who is not in bits, was from a line of a few Genesis Zoids in candy toy type boxes. I honestly can’t remember much beyond that, but I think there was a Soul Tiger, a Megaraptor…maybe Deadly Kong? It’s slightly posable and slightly squishy.
