My friend Francesco just sent me his Hardboiled AFS conversion as a gift! It was made to participate in the Design Your Own Suit group build, and won the 4th place. I can't wait to start on it, but I must first get myself another wave AFS...
Just to ensure that I don't make any confusion, this conversion is Francesco's personal reinterpretation of Alaya-San original model http://m-strangelove.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/cat6872908/index.html

And here--> http://m-strangelove.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/ you can see he is redesigning the subject
Hardboiled isn't a Ma.K. model.. It's only a conversion for Wave AFS
Hardboiled will never sell at Wonderfest. Hardboiled isn't a product: Francesco made some copies for his own use.
This is how it looks like when built up:
Hardboiled by Francesco
Hardboiled by Brian Krueger
Since this is not a kit, I wouldn't be doing a review of it. I am however, extremely honored by Francesco to have it. I will do a short write up on Francesco, one of the modelers I deeply respect.
