Ptimo: Hatsune Miku by Fujimi (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
Hatsune Miku, the virtual idol, has already been made into loads of different products, but let’s see how this plastic model kit from Fujimi looks!
The mic stand is pretty bland though unpainted.
For height, she’s taller than most Bandai SD kits.
For some final thoughts, this is a fun kit to build. I’ts simple, neat and cute. What I like about the plates is that some fragile parts, like the headphone, are well protected by the plates themselves. However, it would be much easier if Fujimi put all the plates of the same color together, instead of spreading them out so much. The other part I like about is the mobility. As said on the cover, there are 22 joints that can move. The only problem is that the arms are a little bit loose, which may be fixed by adding some cement on the plug pin and wait until it dries. Another little complaint might be about the negi, as you see it’s all white. Perhaps it would be better to offer 2 pre-painted ones? But all these won’t be a problem any more if you want to paint her properly. Overall, it’s a lot of fun to build and display, and if you’re a fan of hers, I think you might enjoy it. Thanks for checking this out, see you!
