The last days of the holiday season flew by like a Zeta Plus Hummingbird and before knowing it I was back in the capital and didn't manage to complete the spray-paint work.
So lets report on the small progress I made in these days. I first primed the GM Command with all-purpose primer after sanding everything, cleaning in soapy water and rinsing with tap water. Everything looked fine after that (see picture below).
Work on the HGUC GM Command finally got to a state where I can prime it. After fixing the seam-lines, doing some movability mods to the waist, arms and the neck I completed the work on the power-supply (in the torso) and it's wiring to the head-LED (video is added below). The last thing I did before lots and lots of sanding and fixing was adding some details with PS-sheets under the skirt and on the elbows. I'm quite satisfied with my first try of plaplating (used PS-sheets from ebay). A video concerning this is linked below too.
Someone at Ebay is selling EX-Model Argama's for a real cheap price of 13 € (including shipping) and since I always wanted to have one of these I grabbed one (and think of buying a second).
Metallic parts for the engine, 1/1700 mobile suits (Mk-2,Zeta & Rick Dias), great details and all the option parts make this model kit nearly perfect.
What can I say more. Grab it if you find it somewhere cheap.
As usual I did a video on Youtube.
So here is the two-part video-review:
Hi again. This will be the last entry for a while. I've found a descent job near Berlin and will be moving there in the next weeks. This long job-search was quite productive hobby-wise but other then that...
So I finished my White Base yesterday really quick and can now present some pictures (and a video).
Long time no entry here. I haven't forgotten my long-time spam thread ^^
Well to sum up the last month:
First I started (or restarted) work on my HGUC GM Command and well..because I'm really into this video stuff right now I did a video to sum up the things I'd done until then. Mainly mobility mods (movable shoulders, seperated front-skirt, articulated stomach area...). Right now I'm working on the power supply of LED in the head. It'll be two coin cells in series stored in the torso.
Haha. Someone found my hideout ^^
Good brushes don't loose hairs and won't loose their shape (hairs pointing in different directions) that fast. Esp. if you paint details you want to have a nice pointy shaped brush in order to get the paint where it is needed.
Did some work on Rei the last few days. First off I got rid of those pieces that remain from the molding process and marked areas that have to be puttied and sanded. The kit was pre-assambled with sticky tape. The size shoked me a little bit. I thought this was a small kit. But 1/8 is MG height. That was somewhat unexpected.
