Hi, today’s 「Let’s Build!」will feature Hasegawa Hobby Kit’s Capsule Toy Machine/カプセルトイマシン.
This is 1/12 scale model, other words, made to fit in well with 6 inch figures. I got it in Akihabara from Yodobashi Camera for 855 yen.
The model comes with two blue colored sprues, two white colored sprues, two clear plastic sprues, a bag of multicolored capsule balls, information sheet and a paper card to cut the inserts for the capsule machine and price labels. Interestingly, instructions are on the back. They are written in English and Japanese.
The instructions mention the use of glue/cement, but do not indicate where to glue. The vast majority of the model feels like it was designed to merely snap together.
I painted the blue and white sprues with corresponding Tamiya spray paints.
The model gives you the option for having the machines sit side by side or on top of each other. I chose to build the vertically.
The first machine came out great. The clear plastic was a little loose and I think it needed a bit of plastic cement. The next one, had some difficulty getting the blue and white parts to sit flush. When putting them on top of each other, it looked pretty good.
*Note: Mugen (the lower machine is labeled “MUGEN LOOP”) means infinite. Its a model of a machine with a model of the same machine inside.
