My exams are around the corner but I managed to get some time to install Photoshop and deal with these photos which were taken back in September. This model was built back in April 2007, long before I had an airbrush. Some parts were hand-painted, with panel lines done using Mr. Color Flat Black and sprayed with Mr. Super Clear Flat. I only applied the given dry transfer decals and did not use the provided stickers except for the camera at the back of the head.
Please excuse the bad modeling but I like this iteration of the RX-78-2. How can a Gundam fan not have the First Gundam – father of all Gundams? I think I’ll have a separate category apart from my more recently completed ones. Maybe someone could give me ideas on what 1/100 kit to work on when my exams finally end.
Please excuse the now shoddy modeling job by today’s standards.
The eyes were painted clear yellow with silver painted behind. This method doesn’t work well for most models especially ones with green or blue eyes as they are too dark to be seen.
The only part of the model with poor articulation is the ankles. They go side to side only up to 20 degrees.
However, the kneeling pose is one of the most impressive feats this guy can perform. Notice the horrible sanding marks on the knee joints. (*´Д`)
I don’t have a Zaku II to split in half for this scene.
