According to this post on artist Yamashita Shunya’s official blog, model company Aoshima will be launching a new brand entitled “Blue Lagoon”. The brand’s maiden production will be the Yamashita-designed “Rudy”, a 1/7-scale PVC kit which will retail in July 2007 at 6,090 yen (tax included). Sculpting duty has been entrusted to Modeller T of garage kit circle Ara-ara Komatta-dou, and it seems like he’s done a fine job. Yamashita mentions that interchangeable “conversion” chest parts will be included with the PVC kit, which piques the interest as well… (pictures below)
