Welcome to my WiP thread!
Having assembled a fair number of model kits thus far, I've decided to start my own WiP thread where I record every progress made as of now.

I'm going to kick off things with the MG Gp01Fb. I've owned this kit since January but I've only recently begun working on it.

Here y'go, totally hand-painted, not-masked shield :

Germany colors?

Nah man.
But thanks for the idea.
I'll perhaps go with a Germany scheme on the 00 Gundam

This is the variety of colors I want to incorporate :

White
Black
Navy Blue
Yellow
Green
Red
Metallic Blue
Metallic Grey
Gold
Silver
Metallic Blue

You're hand painting looks great man. Everything looks very even and I really can't see any brush strokes.

Thanks!

Speaking of strokes and stripes, don't be irritated by those weird looking stripes on the picture below. Blame my mobile's camera.

Wow, that's good work. What paints are you using?

That's an impressive list of colors to be used also. And here I thought having six colors was a big headache, haha.

Wow, thank you ^^

I'm using tamiya X colors (not XF!)

Very nice work with Tamiya acrylics. Looks like it's airbrushed. Can't wait to see the rest of the kit.

I'd like to know the same thing. I like that shade of red by the way.

Oh my, thanks for the posivitve appraisal.

However, I am still bugged by a few facts :

The right foot's seam line wasn't removed at all. Additionally, the left one's seam line-removal seems to have ruined the paintjob, with some glue being visible.
The white could be better as well.

Ahh, so that's what you were doing. It could have been that the two parts weren't squeezed in enough, resulting a slight chasm that the glue tried to fill in, but failed to do so. You have some putty handy? That can fix it up easily. You'll have to repaint that area, though.

Tbh, I'm too lazy to do that. ._.

I've actually painted many parts but I've not felt like posting them recently.
I'll publish them once I've painted all of them.

I still think that is the shiniest piece of chocolate that I've ever seen.

Dlinker

Whoa, that really is a very glossy piece. And really, you crafted that out of a block of chocolate, huh?

Haha, looks amazing.

Any time man. I can't wait to see this kit all put together. I'm rather curious as to what your entire color scheme will look like.

They've all been painted by hand. However, I'll postpone this project again. This has grown quite uninteresting

Good progress so far. Whatever you've painted look to be done well.

Alas, that's the difficult part with handpainting as your only method. It can be easy to lose interest and/or burn out.

thwalker13

Yes, hand painting is quite drawn out and tedious. Can really get your burnt out really quick.

Deathscythe!
July 19, 2013, 2:03 PM
Painting the kit by hand itself was lots of fun.
The armor parts are just a pain in the butt. Just take a look at the full burnern. There are armor parts on armor parts.

OOB build : 1/144 HGUC Shin Matsunaga's Zaku II HMT.

Oh, then that's a completely different issue. I haven't experienced disinterest in a kit yet so I don't know how it feels.

Hopefully that Zaku II will do a better job of keeping your attention.

Deathscythe!
August 1, 2013, 12:21 PM
Well, the ZakuII isn't something I'm too proud of. The additional armor on the right arm broke, as did the scope on the bazooka. Plastic cement and Super Glue didn't help.

Well, I'm tackling another project I've got an idea of how to do.

Does anyone watch Hajime No Ippo? Does anyone know the character Eiji Date?

I'll try to create a Japan/Eiji Date based 00 Gundam 7S/G. I'll create the decals myself. Hopefully, the decals don't turn out to lack as very much as it did the last time.
Of course, I'm going to hand paint the HG 1/144 00Gundam 7S/G. However, I'm going to be bound to generate a decal sheet first.

Man, you seem to having tough luck with your kits lately.

I started reading the manga just yesterday so I haven't gotten far.

Sounds like you have an ambitious project with the next kit, though. Let's hope this one keeps your attention and won't have any parts break on you.

My luck has proven to be tougher. I can't find Adobe Illustrator :/

Man, sorry to hear about the Zaku. Hopefully the 00 will be a much better build.

That Zaku was surprisingly flimsy and bent on breaking.

Never good to have a kit that is like that. I have had a few of those in my day. Though I'm surprised that a kit that new would have so many issues.
