i actually spraypaint with krylon paint while the parts are still on the runner, then flat topcoat. some actually get just topcoat, like the geara zulu and strike noir. id like to try airbrushing though


I'm really confused why you do it on the runners...that ruins all of the prep for making it look like not shit, no offense, but my process is that they need to be sanded, glued, seem lines need to go, and then priming painting, gloss coat, panel lines/decals, and the final top coat. Airbrushes are way nicer than rattle cans that's for sure.

They actually come out pretty good like that, I may try sanding like you said, but I don't have the time to paint individual pieces....I tried that on my 1/100 scale hg deathscythe he'll and its probabl one of my worst kits haha

pg rx-78-2 finally came 2 days ago


my weapons of choice


drying runners


finished the head in the first hour


after little panel lining and some decals (i ended up applying the rest later)


decided to give the core fighter a nice fighter jet touch


shield and feet after weathering



in the end, i decided to hold off on perfect grades for a while. and i also might invest my money in a cheap airbrush. great kit, lots of detail, less articulation than newer perfect grades, but detail>articulation imo

Hello,

Thats awesome! I just picked up these Transfomers dual model kits (Optimus Prime & Bumble Bee). Almost done with Bee and he's looking marvelous. Found them on 45Fresh.com



Thanks

empty your cache.ive been working on throne drei off and on for a bit.finished the upper torso, arms,and head.so far its been about two hours.im guessing all together its gonna take at least 4 to 4 and half.which would be the longest a high grade has taken me to build so far.this things got a lot of pieces.

zyezye where you at with the updates?and also ive finished like my 30th gundam and am starting to wonder when that number is doubled or tripled where the hell will i be able to display all of them?not to mention i want to get in on koto kits too.where do you guys keep all yours and what are some space saving techniques?i guess i can keep them closer together on the shelves on the walls as i add to my collection but eventually i will run out of room.

after full weathering and decals



how cool is that smokeyface how do you do weathering, is it a paint technique or is it sanding?

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

July 24, 2011 @ 18:49:52
looks like he did a combo of both and probably cut some chunks out of the shield by the looks of it.
July 25, 2011 @ 10:38:59
^i take out chunks with a dremmel tool, then i barely put any black paint on the brush and lightly brush it on, then throw silver in all the sanded chips smokeyface
