man, this thing took just freaking long when i imagine that the plan was, to build this in my three weeks vacation (last year ) and meanwhile a half year is gone since i started the boosterpack
ok, i had a few breaks, one with Renamon and a few others so the pure building time was about two months but also a long time
i have to say that i don't have any clue about Gundam Wing/00/Zero ore whatever which series is called i know about the Gundams and love the mecha design (specially this one because of the wings) but never saw one part so don't bother about the name
ah, big mechas with wings i just love this shit
even the sheets where not the best (they are very pixelized) i'm totally pleased with the result but during the building and right now i can say, it's definitely not a starter model i had to modify a lot of stuff and quite every blue and grey edge is recolored to hide the folding lines but all over is was pure fun and... surely not my last Gundam model the next one is allready planned
I updated this a bit from the last time. I completely repainted the eyes with a brighter green, same with the light on his forehead, outlined that, outlined the vulcan cannons, filled in the vent on his forehead, replaced the neck entirely, and sanded down the beam saber edges. Overall, if you hadn't seen the last one, I painted a lot of the smaller details/panel lines. Original: [link]
Finished my 1/144 HG Gundam Astray Red Frame over the holidays. One of my most favorite mobile suits as I am a big fan of melee-centric suits. Had a challenge with this one as it involved 2 hard-to-work on colors: red and white (very Japanese don't you think?)
