1/35 Rabidly Dog ST Ver. by Wave (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
The Rabidly Dog is all put together, so let’s see how it looks!
For some final thoughts, first, it is definitely a fun kit to build, and I enjoyed the gimmicks. For this scale, it has a fair amount of details carved into it, and a lot of the armor around the body can move, from the arms to the legs. Unfortunately, they are a little loose, and don’t stay in place all that well sometimes. Also, going back to the unbox, the layout of some of the plates seems a bit counterintuituve, and the gates are rather large which can lead to some unseemly discoloration. More importantly however, is that the manual could be a lot clearer, especially for beginners, as there’s some confusion regarding the order to attach parts, how many, and even what position to put them in. As well, when you are trying different poses, parts do tend to fall off occasionally. The lack of a transformation may be a bit offputting for some, but ultimately, it looks pretty good right out of the box, but you know it can only get better with some paint. Overall though, I’m pleased with the look of it when it’s on the shelf!
