    Sazabi Head Display

    Post by plar10 on Tue 11 Jun 2013, 7:20 pm

    hi guys,

    as i am still waiting for my banshee head decals to arrive. i decided to do a repaint of my GHC Sazabi. nothing much candy red, added metal screws, and clear part on the head monitor. as well as a LED for it's mono eye. i also painted the base gun metal. so here it is. pardon the very sloppy job.








    c/c are welcome.

    for viewing.

    Whoo!!! Nice one bro!!!

    Am I supposed to buy the whole Gundam head collection now?

    I saw them selling the full box set I think was at Takashimaya for $100.

    From the pics the LED looks a bit weak. How about using an ultra bright white LED painted clear green instead? I personally find the "green" LEDs are not true green, but more to a yellowish look. Unless of course, you buy a "true green LED", or this is the colour you are looking for. Embarassed

    You are really fast bro! Did you tear apart this head in order to do the painting?

    Hey man, yea i noticed that too. it says ultra green though, lol. i think it's also because of the strong lighting, under normal light it doesn't look so dim.

    but i think you're right green LEDs have more yellow than green. the clear part is actually a bit bluish but looks like it does not affect the LED color :p

    yea i tore it appart, but most of the top parts of the head come off some i forced to come off and I actually broke the connectors of the mouth piece lol.

    Don't be fooled. From the catalogues I've seen, "ultra green" is a marketing gimmick. Maybe the "ultra" refers to the brightness and not the colour? Only those marked as "true green" have the correct wavelength of "green". Not sure why they are so hard to find. Maybe it's difficult to manufacture LEDs with wavelength of 530 nm?

    The "green" LED does not emit (much) wavelength in the blue region, hence it's not affected by the blue tint. You may however, lose a small amount of brightness.

    From my own experience I prefer to use a white LED passed through a coloured filter. It gives a more vibrant and brighter colour. Embarassed

    Anyhow it doesn't matter cause your head looks so cool! Where did you put the switch and how did you get rid of bleeding? Very Happy
