On the WorkBench #4: Ky-Ra by Kabuki Models

Hello everyone!

A new "On the WorkBench" for you today. To be honest I have received more minis in between and for some of them I intend to still do an "On the WorkBench".

My current "built-but-not-yet-WIP" glass cabinet ;)

Fear not, they will be seen here someday when painted or in progress ;)


Today I'll be talking about Kabuki Models their first ever 1/6 scale bust called Ky-Ra. Based off an older model of theirs.

The older 54mm "Big Sister" Ky-Ra by Kabuki

Ky-Ra came in a strong cardboard box surrounded with the usual blister foam, well and strong enough packaged.

All the parts in the box

The quality of the sculpt is very high, but the amount of flash and mould lines was a little disappointing, I had expected it to be less. I don't know if this is normal for such large scale models since this is my first bigger then a 54mm. Luckily enough it was easy to clean up and after assembly there was only a small gap between her head and neck and the armoured pad and shoulder. Easily filled with a little Milliput juice.

Even though her boobs are a little bit "porn"(in terms of shape and size), it was to be expected as she's a pin-up girl from Kabuki Models, in the end I really like her character and I think she will be a true joy to paint!

All assembled except for her sword, easier to paint that way

CSM for a little scale comparison
All in all I think it's a lovely model and I will very much like this venture in bigger sizes. The bust can be bought again in September, as its sold out for now.

See you again!
