Oy! I am SOLD. That curiously looks far better than the buildup in Zvezda's own photos. Wonder why, it probably is the same one. Could just be having some context and distance to judge the overall size by. I note the closeups have the same issue of a kind of flat paintjob (a bit of satin finish on some of the blacks would go a LONG way) and lack of detail on the lower hull, particularly. I think the planking could benefit from a bit of emphasis, some rescribing in order there maybe. Also the sails will need to be tattered a bit.
SO buying this, and it's gonna get built too. My kid's gonna freak out this year; full size killer robots are getting built in his back yard, he's getting a Kotobukiya ZOID kit for his birthday next month (it'll be like all his dinosaur AND robot wishes coming true in one package) and if I follow that up by building him a Black Pearl, his tiny mind will be comprehensively blown.
