    Trying to do some waste material recycle here

    Post by weitzing on Sat 22 Sep 2012, 10:39 pm


    A spoiled SonicGear ear phone


    Pulled out the metal part

    Odd shape thrusters, maybe....

    The RJ London Chrome seems not so chrome after all if I compare side by side

    nice wip!!

    love the painting of the 1/100 pilot! Very Happy

    your rj chrome seems very dull, did you apply gloss black before using the rj chrome?

    Hi Sliver, ya I spray painted Gloss Black using the expensive Tamiya gloss Black. Is this the correct way? Or what gloss should use.

    The nozzle of the RJ London was a bit faulty also as I spend half of the time trying to depress it and the spray is not as even as expected. Sigh!

    yep, using gloss black. if the nozzle is faulty then i would suggest you do not use that can anymore..

    to add on, if you are looking for super chrome bling.. can consider using Kosutte Ginsan,just need a layer of gloss black and can apply the ginsan powder.

    for application, you can refer to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBN6m92ve1Y
    watch from 2min 50s onwards. i believe you will love the effect Smile

    Errr, I just thought of leaving it like that leh, since all will be covered up. But since this is the 30th anniversary one, I painted the hydraulics so those part still can see. What do you suggest?

    @Sliver, thanks for the Youtube, this is really cool. Is this Kosutte Ginsan readily available at shops like HAG, I don't remember seeing it. One question on this is, after applying the Ginsan, is the surface "untouchable" in the sense that any finger on it will remove the chrome or it's more or less ok? The Mr. Metal I have been using is basically paint already, then better not touch it, as the paint comes off easily.

    Thanks

    @weitzing: after application, try not touch e surface, will compromise on e bling-ness

    @bwjm and weitzing: i saw sth similar at mws, think its called magic powder or sth liddat (located near his shelves where he hooks all e koto parts). U can ask bernard, he will b able to show u where it is.

    Hope it helps

    Yes, their workshop are mostly for military vehicles. It will also apply to gundam.
    Very interesting if you go into the advance classes. Talk to Bernard or Julian for more information.

    Ya man, especially when u are lazy to paint in the same original color. However it cannot really cover some obvious nub marks.

    nice work!!! i love the bling bling blue effect that u have done for the sole thrusters and bazooka! Smile

    being a spraycan user, i used to get frosting qutie often, then the bros here shared with me we shouldnt topcoat when its at night/raining/about to rain, frosting tends to occur more during these times, so now i topcoat only in the daytime, perhaps u can try topcoating on a hot day?
    think ab user will not get frosting tat often

    in addition, i can't help but notice the yellow '+' on the shield seems be unpainted? mayb u left it out?

    Hi Sliver thanks for ur advice, will try to spray on a better day next time.
    As for the yellow cross on the shield, I never intended to paint but just simply apply top coat. I will show u the photo once I done that. I only painted the thrusters, bazooka and parts of the inner frame so far.

    Considered done... Final try on some weathering...

    Post by weitzing on Sat 06 Oct 2012, 3:43 pm












    Can spot some imperfection? Accidental breakage, too lazy to cement. Just do some weathering around that later.


    Can guess if the shield is painted?
