Doll on Doll Violence II

This time, instead of featuring the weapon of choice for space wizards or 60-foot tall robots, I'll discuss plastic model kits of modern assault rifles. To the left is an image of the kits I have.

While you may not find the exact model as the ones in the photo, if you live outside of Japan, you can buy 1/3 scale rifle kits from Amiami or Hobby Search.

Instructions come in English and Chinese. The kits are not complicated and the pictures in the manual make it very clear which parts go where.

You'll need nippers/sprue cutters, plastic model cement, a hobby knife, pin vise, and a drill bit set. You'll need additional tools if you want to do more than the bare minimum but I'm not going to get into that.
