I have hobby ADHD or something... In the middle of my papercard M113 build, I started a plastic kit from the Sunrise anime series Obsolete. Well, sort of... You see, they made one of their Exoframe kits (Good Smile) a tribute to Armored Trooper Votoms. Here is my build so far.

I did remember to document some of the build... Turned into a holiday weekend build marathon! I will have resize some of the photos, as my phone camera tends to turn on HDR mode (that, and learn how to control my camera better).

First we have the Exoframe and generic driver.

Then our favorite outlaw former Red Shoulder special forces Votoms Armored Trooper.

And these are the Armored Trooper parts that attach to the Exoframe laid out for decals.

Okay, I resized these on my computer so they'll upload...

...the Money Shots of the completed model (well, 90% complete, there are a number of details I want to paint when time allows... Chipping, painting the ammo belt, etc).

Yeah, last two were just for fun... I enjoy Votoms just ever so slightly...

My first foray back into modeling, way back in the mid 80's, was figure modeling and painting. First for MechWarrior, then D&D, with a dabble in WH 40K.
I still love figures and miniatures.
This Exoframe looks great!

I like it! ...in fact I like it a lot! Nice job, I love a good Exo

cue me now heading online searching for one!

Search ended, £54/$68 is a bit steep!

Sadly, that's likely the going rate, I picked this one up a couple years ago. Drives me nuts the way mecha models are produced in such 'limited' quantities! I'll give Good Smile a bit of slack though, they aren't Bandai, they only have so much factory space... But, it's still frustrating.

Thank you everybody! I hope to have some more photos soon of some more work with regard to adding more details to the mech itself.
