I think many would ask me why would I bother to buy and build this. Since Bandai has a MG 1/35 Griffon Labor (cheaper too). But I do not have that kit even though I am a huge fan of the Patlabor series. The reason is because the proportion of the Bandai kit looks very wrong to me, somehow its just not the Griffon Labor I remember.

As seen from the box above, it is a OOP kit from Bandai. I don’t know why I am so magnetically attracted to it. I just felt I ought to get it even though the price is pretty much killer at ¥5950.
It looks like a total wreck upon viewing the contents too. LOL. But alas, I am still glad I bought it. I just know that this has got to look better than the current Bandai kit.
Anyway, I just started working on it and I love it already. The details looks great and the vinyl was great to work with too.

Here’s a little update before I patch up the whole thing during the coming weekend. At this point of time, most of the part are simply snapped together. The best part about vinyl kits is that there are no seams to clean up! All I used so far are just a knife and CA (super) glue.
