    PG Strike Freedom Gundam WIP

    Post by epsilondelta24 on Sat 05 May 2012, 8:23 pm



    the first update on my first PG's WIP :

    the action base Laughing



    too lazy to sand down the nubs (quite a lot of them, I noticed), so I just trim the nubs with knife and cover it with black gundam marker. Razz

    that's it for the base (nothing special)

    I'll continue with snap fitting the inner frame, before painting the crap gold parts.


    probably next week I'll be hunting paints, the bad news is most shops I contacted no longer have Tamiya TS-21 gold, so I might have to use other brands (Mr Color is quite difficult to get here, so maybe I wouldn't be able to find it).

    I'm going to build this slowly and peacefully over two-three months (otherwise I might die out of boredom in this vacation period) Laughing

    the goal is to make something similar to Waylander's PG SF, with extra panel lines and pla plates (probably somewhere close to VP's MG SF resin conversion). it's tentative, depending on my skills. Embarassed

    next update :

    the inner frame of the feet was snap fitted, then I decide which parts I would paint, disassemble, then put masking tapes to cover areas which will be exposed to a lot of friction.



    sorry for the slow progress... and thanks for reading.

    it comes like that... the chrome ones are the best.. even the plate gold parts are poorly painted, the painting is uneven (maybe you can browse some reviews out there mentioning this).

    tried the krylon metallic gold (it's branded with the name of the shop selling it, but I've confirmed that it's from krylon), I quite like the metallic finish, but it doesn't mix well with gloss topcoat. maybe I should wait longer for it to cure, since it's enamel... Rolling Eyes

    still unable to find TS-21 here... wish me luck guys. Smile

    update :

    parts photo for upper and lower leg (up to ankle)

    both the right and left legs have the same parts, so I just take photos from one.





    I'll probably start painting on tuesday, tomorrow I might be a little busy.. Razz

    it's raining the whole afternoon, so I couldn't paint anything... so I just separate the parts which I would paint later.



    still trying to imagine what kind of mods I'm going to do (well it's still a long way to go, so I'll take my time).

    trying to copy waylander's feet extension mod... I wonder how it would turn out, since it's my first time playing with putty.. Laughing



    just applied it an hour ago, will wait for 24 hrs before sanding, then I will scribe lines, probably add pla plates, prime, wet sand, then paint with TS-44... hopefully everything goes well. Very Happy

    my first impression on epoxy putty : it feels like playing with chewing gum lol... and it's very sticky. Razz

    There's always a first Smile. Gambate!

    Jus a note. I dunnoe if it's the camera angle or what, but the putty at the feet closer to the camera seems to be slanted alittle bit at the end.

    hmm probably... I'll sand them today, and if something goes wrong I can simply add more putty. (rather than having the left and right feet different?) Laughing
