Moebius’ Cylon Centurion
The first thought I had when I finished this Cylon Centurion kit was, “Crap, if I saw one of these coming at me, I would probably soil myself.” The Cylons are some frightening machines, and this kit captures that intimidating presence well.
This kit is huge!
I loved the look of this kit, and the quality of Moebius Models was not lacking here. The size was probably the most impressive element of the model, and I am anxious to set it next to some of my 1:6 scale Sideshow Collectibles figures to see just how imposing it is.
For the technical details, I painted the armor parts with Model Master chrome silver enamel and the inner parts with Tamiya gunmetal spray enamel. Once that was done, I was still not pleased with how bright the silver was, so I rummaged through my paint stash and found a dark grey metallizer. After thinning it down quite a bit, I airbrushed a light coat over the whole model, which gave it a more realistic look in my opinion. I then added some small touches of Tamiya soot weathering powder to show that this beast had seen a couple firefights. Finally, I topped it all off with a gloss clearcoat to give it a bit of sheen.
This kit has just the right balance of cool and creepy. The hands alone give me shivers! There was very little difficult or not to like about the kit. I definitely recommend this to any Battlestar Galactica or sci-fi modeling fan!
