It's first time in a while, there's nothing wrong with a cast from E2046, though I still would love for you guys to switch to modern thinner and slow curing resin for your casts. Nonetheless it's a decent one without much issues besides some warping. But while the casting is decent, this kit is another one which transitions badly to resin, with its huge amount of interchangeable parts, originally push-fit it's nightmare to assemble without setting your sights on one option and glueing it all. Magnets are also a big no since shirt, face and neck parts are too thin to actually put any decent magnets in them. But that's just reality of recasts so I am writing it as a warning, not blaming production here. But one thing of note is that the book decal is a bit off in scale. (It's also nightmare to actually put on this surface, with a key tab in the middle) Overall decent kit, not for beginners, and you probably need to choose one display option and assemble it.

Another kit wrecked by E2046's cheap fast cure resin, and possible oversanding. This figure has a lot of sharp "mechanical" details that simply dissapeared in this recast, both opaque and clear parts are so "melted" that it's hard to even make anything out of those, not to mention mask and paint them. Of course it's also another kit with pretty much destryed belt part (I think I never seen E2046 doing those right) Had I not purchased competition's kit, I mayhap would be under the impression that "it's recast what can you expect" but since I know that you can recast even tiniest parts with sharp detail by using proper resin, I will be frank. I advise anyone to avoid this or any other kit with sharp detail from here, they aren't worth your money and time.

The jacket is quite funky and doesn't fit, needs heat molding. The parts of model itself are nicely done, but connection parts are SUPER rough and need alot of work to fit them together. The figure is gorgeous, but needs some work to start

Another kit brutalized by E2046's workshop. It was either cast using abused mold, thick bad quality resin or both of those, which made all the surfaces "bumpy" and most of sharp details "melted". It's salvageable, but unpleasant nonetheless. Not only that, but also clear parts provided are parted in a way that makes them unusable with provided cast quality. To add insult to injury, lower body and leg part, have around 0,5 cm split when fit on base, and due to sharp shapes of the kit, putty is hardly an option. Another kit that I would recommend fresh modelers to keep away from.

Another lovely piece, butchered by workshop. First of, resin in this kit was "weird" for lack of better word, it was quite grainy nad weird to touch compared to other kits, but in most case on figure itself detail held well, though her back where blouse string is supposed to go melted completely and needs resculpting. But what completely destroys this piece is the base and accesories, not only they are opaque whence pictures show it as clear piece, they are warped, and practically cannot be finished in the high gloss fashion shown (even using some tricks of trade), making them unusable. The table had flush tab on a place of joint where resin overspilled and made joint unusable without heavy modification. The clear chalice has flush tab on its border, which practically destroys the surface and requires lot of work to fix. Model was also riddled with places where resin, became a thin membrane, creating weak-spots. Also her panties shrank to the point of being impossible to put on, considering how it should be a removable piece, they would wreck even strongest paintjob when moved. Parting is quite decent for E2046 though, and body and face details hold quite well. Nonetheless base which inflates both price and shipping the most, is practically unusable. Not recommended unless you know how to fix a lot of the issues. Also for some reason hair piece had color contamination for some reason, returned piece repackaging suspected.

I was looking forward to paint her, and left her for a while, until I was confident in my skill. Now I regret that decission, had I opened her earlier I would just return her. This sculpt is pretty simple and relies on small carved lines and details, Which were OVERSANDED! and pretty much dissapeared. Not only that but in all this overzealous sanding there were scratches left over. Not to mention weird hard blotch of resin that took quite a lot to smooth down, and which somehow was avoided in zealous oversanding despite being right above the oversanded part. Still, I don't have either tools nor expertise to pretty much resculpt all of such small details. Another example of dismal quality control on your side.
FG8055 Shamsiel Pre Order
Nice little kit, quite decent cast in case of body parts. Not so well though in regards to the "removable" outfit, it really didn't translate well into resin (which is acase of most thin parts, since they need to be injection molded to retain detail), not only it was brittle, a lot of details were either overpoured or just outright bad, resin also shrunk as resin does, so fitting front and back portions was impossible. So if you want to buy it prepare to either put it out nude with eventually loose fit outfit for when people come in, or fix the outfit to her and heavily repair it with lots of sculpting. As most recasts from PVC unadvised for beginner modelers, besides outfit her pose and breasts size makes her a bit difficult to shade properly in certain areas.

After almost 2 months of wait (december, COVID and Polish post office) there she is. As always the outer box is humid and almost turned into mud but the inside is impeccable. And of this specific figure, I don't know who did the packaging but I want to thank you so much for the work. SO many pieces that could have been bent in the best case scenario, or broken. Nothing of the sort. And the cast is clean, really easy to assemble. It is going to be such a treat to work on this one! Thank you so much guys!
