PostSubject: Butterflies (Fascinations - Metal Earth)   Sat Dec 23, 2017 7:09 pm

This will be a thread for an overall review of the Butterflies set by Fascinations - Metal Earth, new for 2017. Metal earth has many metal model kits, and I normally do not like metal or metal kits, but since the models in this set are painted accurately (above and below), I decided to give them a try. There are eight figures in the set. At the time of this initial post, I only have two assembled (I will add them as I do them--might take time due to other commitments).

The set includes eight species, all North American, and at the time of this initial writing, one is a new species for me. I am having trouble manipulating the metal to get the pieces to fit into the near-microscopic holes, LOL, so I decided to build the bodies and wings separately, and then glue the wings to the body. Not ideal, but it suits my purposes.

I only have two assembled, and they have 100 mm wingspans, so assuming they are all the same size, will range from slightly under to slightly over 1:1 ratio.

On to the models, as I make them. Because they are smooth metal, I am finding them hard to photograph well, so I apologize for less than optimal images.

...more to come over upcoming weeks, or possibly months.
