Stray Dog: Kerberos Panzer Cops (DML/Platz)
So it's time to break out one of those plastic men amassed over the years out of their boxes & just enjoy.
This is the DML/Platz re-issue in 2010 and not the original DML/Yamoto release from 2002. The obvious difference would be the new head-sculpt of actor Yoshikazu Fujiki from the Stray Dog: Kerberos Panzer Cops movie.
Other subtle upgrades of the new re-issue comprises of an upgraded DML Neo body, new material for the chest armour/ shin armour, a softer (almost rubber) face mask with transparent lenses, new MG42 ammo belt etc. but overall still retaining the same Protect Gear design & molding of the original release.
As usual, the kitbasher in me did a little touch-up:
1. Change the waist belt to a WWII German belt with buckle
2. Shorten the loops of the groin, butt & side armour plates to hang higher & not so low dangling
3. Added bayonet to belt
4. Added MG pouch to belt
5. Mild weathering.
Completed. The perfect companion figure to Medicom's Red Spectacles; the master & dog relationship/theme ever recurring in Kerberos Saga....!!!
