Damn Weather! Co-operate!

Well, the rainy season is upon us here in Kanto so painting is plodding along. I manage to do little pieces here and there and then follow up with the decals and what not. Right now, I am waiting to paint the last pieces so I can do the final topcoat.

Let's see where we are, shall we?

I needed to attach the foot to the leg before I could put the last of the armour on. It was make or break. I would see if my leg extensions were strong enough or not.
Well, one of them was strong enough, while the other started to come loose. I quickly clamped and cemented it. It is strong again, but poseability will be limited. As long as it looks cool, right.

Here are the arms:
Here are the arms on drugs. I mean, attached to the torso.

The torso actually turned out better than I thought it would after I have been fighting with it for 2 months. I is 'volumed up' by a millimeter or more and I added small pieces of pla plate and putty to cover where the joins are.

Some touch up with the paint will need to be done before I attach the head.

I don't have a pic of the head, but I gave it a spray (with that thick hardware store paint) and it turned out not bad. The seam line is gone! I will need to gloss coat it for decals and then will post a pic.


  1. are almost done! I am barely halfway with my Astraea. Nice job.

    I like all the custom veniers.

    For the chest vents and the lower portion of the cockpit cover, is that painted with black color?

  2. thanks! yes, the chest vents and cockpit cover are painted black. i wanted the chest vents to look like they were part of the frame. The cockpit cover was painted black to break up the colors in that area.
