    HG Project Gundam Thrones

    Post by celeron787 on Sun 04 Dec 2011, 7:02 pm

    My next project will be the 3 gundam thrones from gundam 00.
    Starting with Zwei, then Eins and finally Drei.
    I will be doing various mods to improve the proportions.
    Can view more details here

    First, snap fitted pic of the Zwei and Eins


    Increase neck height
    Mod shoulder joint to allow wider range of movement.


    Increase thigh height


    Widen chest area


    Fill up holes with epoxy


    Overall look after these mods


    What do you think?
    Still got alot of holes to fill up, and some other areas to mod as well.

    Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques welcomed!

    my first painted kit!
    i feel that with so much etensions, u should extend the arm length as well. the arms look kinda short now.

    how about taking an upfront shot? to check for the proportions, or for the bros here to recommend any places to change Smile

    good job! Very Happy

    Revisit the Throne Drei I did a few years back, no mods done at that time. Will be stripping the paint off and improving it similarly.



    Epoxy 'party' for other parts No

    no probs with the qns, just ans with what I know
    Epoxy putty and Tamiya putty both different thing, so different uses

    Epoxy putty consists of 2 sticks, 1 stick is resin, other stick is hardener. Cut and mix equal amount of both, no need thinner. Something like dough, apply to area. Takes quite long to harden, I usually leave it for about 6 hours before doing anything to it. Once harden, its very hard, still sandable but not so easy. Epoxy is good for shaping and sculpting stuff since u can play with the shape as it is dough-like.

    Tamiya putty is paste-like, squeeze out of tube can use le. Good for seamlines and small gaps. Dries fast too. Since it is paste-like, it cannot be shaped to your desired shape.

    So in my opinion, if ur intention is to clear seamlines and small gaps, tamiya putty works better. If you are scratch building something, use epoxy putty cause u can have more control over its shape.

    What I do for HG kits with huge holes (like those that I filled in the last pic), fill with epoxy putty first. When it has hardened, sand/slice of excess. If any small gaps/holes spotted, fill with tamiya putty.

    Hope this helps!
