Hey everyone! And welcome to part 1 of me assembling the Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G - Hunter - Naruga X Soubi - 1/8 (Jamming off) ITEM #126806 Garage Kit.

I am starting with the prep for this kit: removing leftovers, cleaning up, pinning etcetera. For the full video, check out the insert below. For pictures with commentary, keep on scrolling!

The amount of tabs to remove was quite low for this kit.

Some of the parts are extremely small, similar to my previous Monster Hunter kit BLOG #55074 she has a lot of small teeth scattered around on her outfit. However as this specific kit is smaller, all the teeth are smaller as well!

Some parts needed a bit of extra sanding.

Fit testing went quite well, I didn't find any big issues.

Now it was time to decide the pin size.

Ready for undercoat...

...and undercoat finished!

Overall the prep work for this kit was a lot more minimal than my average kit and it went smoothly. There are so many parts, though!!! This will be another though build and paint, but I am certain I can do it! :)

victorviper1 month ago#114295407I did not ultimately order either kit, but there's always someday :).
The two kits were Akane Suzumiya ITEM #26855 and Haruka Suzumiya ITEM #24032 from Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - for whatever reason, I've always had a soft spot for that series.
It seems like a lot of those old Volks kits are still fairly easy to find even 15-20 years after their release, so there's not the same urgency to pick them up compared to some kit made by an independent circle, where there were never more than a couple hundred of them circulating around.


Those kits are nice, I especially like the dress on Haruka.

I don't have any Volks kits myself or experience hunting for them, but it sounds similar to Clayz, which is like inbetween a circle and a company. Although not super common, I do easily find 1-2 new Clayz kits from my wishlist for sale every year, I recently ordered ITEM #29230 .

Maakie2 months ago#114271076Aww, please don't! I have been super active with GK painting, spending at least 1 day a week on it, which is possible because I've dropped a lot of other hobbies. My speed of work is only possible if you would do something like that as well!
Did you end up ordering those 2 kits? Which ones are they? :) And yeah especially all those tiny teeth! This kit was way more complicated than expected.

victorviper2 months ago#114269861Wow, so many tiny little pieces.
You're making me feel guilty with all these GK projects - I've got my little stack of unbuilt/unpainted kits sitting over on the shelf that isn't getting smaller :). Plus, I was just browsing Mandarake, and they had two old kits on my wishlist.
