Building the internal frame took around 3 days with minimal sanding. Let’s see if my art knife skills (or lack thereof) can live up to the scrutiny of Mr. Surfacer.
Some parts were sanded to get rid of the flash lines. I’ve also commenced sanding the flash lines on the weapons too. They should be ready for priming as well.
No problems with the high kneel for now. Wonder if it can remain this flexible with all the armour slapped on.
Speaking of armour, the pieces are still untouched. I’ll probably do this model in two stages, treating the armour separate until I’m done with the inner frame. That will give me the equivalent of two models in one. The parts will take up less space too.
Oh crap. I only have a little bit of Mr. Surfacer left. Time to go get several cans more. Maybe I can look for my metal parts and sneak in some arcade time too.
I totally forgot the existence of the MS-06F Zaku II when I bought this guy. Should have went for that one instead. But if I wanted a more remarkable suit, I should have gotten Char’s Zaku. I also got the wrong set of Gundam Decals. I’m now holding on to the “Real Type Zaku” decal sheet when I should be getting the normal MS-06J Zaku decal sheet. Ah well. So much for impulse purchases.
