Eva Unit 02: It’s ALIIIIIVE!


Some time ago, Ray gave me a Eva 02 model kit from Japan for Christmas. I never got around to finishing it until now, and I’m pleased to present the final results here. Thanks a bunch, Ray! It was a lot of fun building it, giving me a lot of the same pleasure that I have when I build computers. It was also cool seeing how all these little, weird-looking, and seemingly unrelated parts come together and you discover–hey, this is Unit 2’s arm! This is the leg, the torso, the head!

Alas, I don’t have the skills to paint the remaining parts manually, nor the time, but it looks awesome anyway. Its final home is on the top of my monitor, standing guard for any evil alien Angels hovering nearby.
