Some odds and ends before I head off.
So I am off to the tropical island paradise of chichimjima (父島) for a week. Where I won't have access to my gunpla (although I am tempted to bring along the eco gundam I picked up at Shiokaze.
I have done some more painting to the weapons and upon my return should be starting on the armour. A week seems like a long time when away from the plastic...
More micro masking. I sprayed this intitally with the silver aluminum and then masked off the part that I wanted to stay that colour.
after the Dark Gun Metal...
This piece was sprayed with the German Gray that I have used on the frame and then masked and sprayed with the Dark Gun Metal.
The picture doesn't show it well, but the three colours look pretty good together. I have top-coated it and will apply the decals when I get around to that part. That part I am not looking forward to. It will take a long time.
And the seam lines have been eliminated so I will need to prime this before painting it.
And I am off! 行くぜ。
