My long over-timed WIP has ended
The aim of this project is to make a variation of S Gundam that is a melee type, agile, and a slimmer one.
- added ball joint on the torso and waist
- used the MG 007S weapons
- added some MG Hi-Nu parts
- Metal parts and thrusters were from HQO
- Detail parts were from WAVE and Kotobukiya
My first Air-Brushed kit.
Shifting to AB from Spray Cans were a little bit rough for me. I used Spray Cans for two years, and yes, I know the consequence of using it, is it's too thick for the plastic. But once you do practicing on the proper misting, you can make thin coats with. In spray cans, whatever flaws/scratches you have made on the kit will be covered thoroughly, since spray cans produce a thicker coats. So less sanding for me and less time wasted.
But shifting to AB, since it produces very thin coats, flaws and scratches were visible afterward, hehe. So I did some re-sanding in order to erase the flaws and scratches. Now I know why many people take so much on sanding.
All in all, I enjoyed using the AB, you can produce more color than spray cans, you just need to master the right pressure to produce the right effect. Right now I am more interested on produce metallic finishes for the frame.
Alright, here are the photos...
