Nice Wouter...careful with the weathering, I heard somewhere that certain Gundams are made of an alloy that doesn't rust. Don't know if yours is one of them. It didn't say though that the paintwork was any good. If WW2 Japanese planes paintwork chipped badly, I guess it would be the same for this even in Gundam town.
Hi guys, thanks for the replies, glad you like it ^^
@chris: not much to show, I'm busy with the pinwash, but unlike a regular pinwash I'm using the Marijn van Gils technique where you paint the shadows in stead of capillary action. Much more timeconsuming. I've been working on it for 3+ hours and not even in half :D
Excuse the Hi-jack Wouter,
However after seeing this build I've decided to take the plunge and have a go at a bit of 'Gunpla'...so i bought myself these a few days ago,
I'm gonna have a crack at the 'Guncannon' first, although i'm thinking about changing the 'colour' of it.. to a more 'Desert battleground' camouflage ...
(but hey, isn't that what modelling's about... find something to build and do it your way.. my apologies to the Gunpla Gods and purists ..)...
So i'm gonna start throwing a bit of paint around tomorrow...
Hi Chris, glad you made the plunge into Gunpla. Saw your very first finished one on FB and I was very pleased with the outcome, well done!
Today was a bit of 'shelfqueen day' :D
Well, been working on it for a couple of days/weeks on and off now - so not only today :D
Prior to weathering we need chipping... A LOT...I was afraid I overdone it but when I look at it now at the photos I think it's quite restrained for my doing. Probably heavy chipping for most Gunpla enthousiasts but I think it's not too much so far. On the real fun now ^^
