Now that I've finished some work related projects I am back to tinkering around on the Musha Mk. II Gundam. I intend not to rush this project because I want to get it right and end up with the sense of satisfaction that comes from knowing I didn't cut corners. As a distraction, should I get frustrated with the Musha, I've picked up;
Hoi Hoi Pest-X san and...
the HG 1/144 Exia Avalanche Dash.
I previously wrote about the horns and how I removed the gold plating. Now I have glued and sanded down the seam lines and I am left with this!
And I think they look pretty cool. Someone mentioned how they look ivory and I would tend to agree with them. I am now torn between painting them the colour I originally decided on or leaving them as is. Leaving them as is would mean I wouldn't be taking out the seam line on the helmet. Hmm...
And here's the upper thigh armour:
This effect was created by taking my evergreen plastic strips and layering them overtop of each other. This will now look like the upper legs are covered in proper yoroi (鎧) or armour. There's still some clean-up, of course, to be done in prep for painting but I am very pleased with how they turned out and also how easy it was for me to do.
What will I tinker with tonight?
