Not really much to show, but I did manage to get one side of the rifle, and cartridge-like thingies, decaled this morning. To do so I had to get up at 6 am. I did get to bed early last night so it wasn't as hard as it sounds.
I picked up a set of WAVE decals from work for use on the Rifle, Bazooka, Gatlings, and Unicorn, although other than the feet there won't be much need for white decals on a gray Unicorn.
These decals are the same as the black ones I used on the Yellowbird.
They will make a splendid pair, desho.
Anyways, onto the pics!
Here's the rifle. I really like a well done rifle. This has been painted in Gun Ship Gray while the silver is, of course, Silver Leaf. I am considering using this gray on the Unicorn feet, which I am procrastinating about. I removed the rifle's seam lines fairly well, and only the opening separated slightly when I stuffed the silver piece in. (more details here.) Because everything went as planned, there isn't a need to do any touch up. Yay! Score one for the good guys!
And those cartridge-like thingies?
Mica Blue baby!
I spent the first few minutes, while shrugging off drowsiness, cutting these little suckers out one by one. One the decal sheet they are actually in one line with about a millimeter of space between. Ya, I need help. I'll spray topcoat tonight to hold these on and decal the other side in the next couple of days.
I have already used some of the dry transfers on the backpack, and used the larger ones for the Unicorn's shoulders. Other than that I won't be using them again. Well, I can use one of them with a slight adjustment.
We'll just cut away one of those words.
As a bonus to all you readers out there (笑), I am including this pic I snapped in the local mall the other day. On the 3rd floor there is a large hobby area with Gundam kits, and RC cars, and slot car race tracks, and two large Gundam statues! These things are over four feet tall!
