It is my pleasure to review the W.H.J. 131 Grosser Hund Altair in 1/20th scale, by Hasegawa. This is again quite an exciting release, being the Space-based variant of an original late-run SF3D design that was meticulously researched and recreated by Katooo for the Garage Kit scene at Wonderfestival, then adapted for “space” with additional/different parts. Being a resin limited run kit, it always commanded a high price and was extremely rare, so a general release in friendly styrene? It’s a dream come true. It’s also a pretty cool release on a personal level, as I was the first fan to make a “Lunar Großerhund” model, which I was told inspired Kato-san to make the canon design a short time later.
Comparing to the original SF3D Großerhund, it has been completely recreated in the digital world, and “beefed up”. This Großerhund is taller, meaner, and just bigger. Check out the pics below!
