I wondered, too, about "Core". Do they mean, "corps", as in a body of troops or military unit? Or, do they mean that the mecha is integral to a larger weapon, which is built around this one? Or is it like classic instructions in kits from Japan or China, back in the day, that sometimes left us scratching our heads.It appears you need to be very careful building this considering the warning in 4 different languages on the box. Look forward to seeing it finished.
Hopefully no more surprises ,
1 mm and 1/2 mm styrene , plus 1/10 mm clear sheet for that tiny , raised panel on the interior side -- finished with Tamiya lacquer putty . Then some knife and chisel work for the exterior details :
Then pushed up against the good one to sand it to the identical profile ,

I wanna get an Armored Core mech kit. I LOVE the games.A friend of mine gave me this - He didn't have interest in it , evidently .
I figured of all the kits in the stash that will never get built , being a gift , this shouldn't be one of them .
Let's see what happens with it . I'm in the mood for some weathering .

Look at all the plastic ,
Basically, its like the old late 80s/early 90s film Robot Jox. People pilot these robots in arena combat, though they are also used by the military. The games mostly focus on the arena stuff, with occasional military missions.I was not familiar with this universe at all .
This mech seems to have a different aesthetic than the others - judging from Google Images .
More rectilinear in form .
