Resin Aaliyah Figure Kit



This kit is 1/16 scale and made of resin parts. This is part of ZLPLA's "Girls in Action" series. (ZLPLA is now Tori-Factory )

The kit is also available in a smaller 1/20 scale.

It consists of about 10 pieces. The very small "directions" show basic parts, but it's pretty obvious where all they all go. The molded detail is amazing and very crisp so the parts easily fit together.

I first washed the figure (in case there was any mold release chemicals on it) and then I primered the parts.

I painted the entire kit with acrylic (Vallejo type ) paints. Early on a used some base coats with an airbrush but most of it was done by hand with brushes.

Since I don't do many figures I always have issues doing skin and faces, but I get better as time goes on. On this kit I had to strip the paint off the head / face three times before I was somewhat satisfied with the results. It's still not perfect, but it will have to do.

The rest of the kit was easy to paint. I used various colors and heavy weathering (since I think she was probably doing some mechanical - maintenance work of some kind before her beer break).

The can in her hand is a separate part. I used two decals from my spare decals box. One for the can, and one to be a tattoo on her right shoulder.

The base for her is just some scrap parts I had - primarily an old plastic electrical box with some square mesh on top of it.

Even though I had trouble with my own painting skills on the face, I still enjoyed this kit and will probably get a few more from this company.
