guys, this is my first ever submission to this great website. And this is my
first ever Gundam model, I build armor and aircraft too, so this subject was an
interesting kit to work on. Its made by Bandai, the quality is very good and the
instructions are in Japanese, but they are easy to follow. One of the good things
about this Bandai kits is that u can build them without using any glue at all!
So construction was easy and I was ready to paint the model in less than a day.
I used Tamiya acrylics for the painting and weathering. I always pre shade my
models and then I do some post shading too. For the battle damage I used a
solder with a screwdriver tip and a Dremel tool with an engraver. I used oil
colors for the rust and dirt (and some pastels too).
base its made of drywall that I found in my basement, and was painted and
weathered the same way as the model. If you build aircraft or the
occasional armor, I recommend you to give this Gundams kits a try. Thanks.
