  1. These are 2 of my most unexpectedly interesting builds I've done.
    The Turn A has such a unique joint system for the legs and the Turn X it just a different build experience. I'm defo going to be grabbing this set.

  2. Yup I need this. Been wanting these two kits, but they've been sold out everywhere. I like the metallic finish on them and the decals are cool too.

    1. I don't believe they're metallic finishes. More like smokey clear or translucent plastics. The nano decals are cool though

  3. Like the nano decals but not a fan of those translucent pearl finishes on the kit, maybe I'll try to get a decal sheet form samueldecal
