About the Kit


Assembling as you follow the instructions of containing, there is nothing particularly difficult.



The seams are remaining at the shoulders and the outer cover of the thigh, the body of the arms and legs, and the horn.

The body of arms and legs can be almost hidden with the outer covers, but I would like to erase the seams of the outer cover.



Basically, it is enough color-molded when the bare assembly state.

For upgrading, I did painting on some parts as color-coded as shown in the following photos.

e.g. Instep, heel, side duct, power supply cover, parts inside the back cover

Picture about painting part better to do




This painting way is not only for this kit, but also most of all plastic-model work, that is to do painting with several times for better painting quality.

Those pictures are shown about differences of the painting appearance when to do painting 3 times.


Painted once with the brush

Remarks for the decals to paste well onto the kit

the highest difficulty of this kit is the decals.

  • Chest and Abdomen: ①④ is particularly difficult to paste on a curved surface, because it is so large size decal. I made spend a lot of time for this part to paste ①②③④ while checking the position and balance of the seams (gap). I recommend that better to use a mark setter etc. that like not to dry quickly and keep a state of soft and wet until position of decal is fixed. Otherwise decal will be torn easily.
  • Horn : Decal is separated to left and right ⑮⑯ decals. The shape is tapered toward the tip. Thus a gap might be occurred if the pasted position shifts to the root wards, and if shift to the tip, it will be overlapped. so process with caution.
  • Shoulder: Decals are separated to 3 pieces ⑫⑬⑭ and to paste on a curved surface. There is 1 set spare.
  • Knees: Decals are separated to 3 pieces as ⑧, ⑨ and ⑩. At first, paste ⑧ and ⑨ on the curved surface, then put ⑩ on top of ⑧ and ⑨. I recommend that paste ⑩ after ⑧ and ⑨ is dry enough.
  • Eyes: It’s relatively easy to paste decals if you gently put it in hole of eyes and gently press it with a cotton swab.

on the other hand…

  • Power supply cover decal: “Caution” and “Power supply” can be selected.
  • “Nerv” on the back cover : feel getting excited!



How was Mechatrowego?

The assembly is easy, and I thought it would be nice to paint instead of decals where large areas of.

How about choosing your favorite Eva series and finishing it as cute to your liking?
