Alright guys, the time has come. I have finally completed 1/2 of my Banshee project. The Unicorn Mode. Some of you have been following my build thread of this kit and now it's finally time to show it off. My wife and I took a lot of pictures so I will try to post the best of the best. And please remember, stay watchful of this thread and my other build thread. Cause I still have the Destroy Mode to build. And so without further wait, I give you. My HGUC Banshee Gundam in Unicorn Mode.

After seeing these pictures I've noticed a ton of spots that I missed. And some that I just plain messed up on. However this was my very 1st kit that I have ever attempted to fully paint like a pro. And overall I feel that I did a rather good job for my 1st time. I had lots of fun and learned a lot while doing this kit. And I hope to apply what I've learned to the Destroy Mode. In hopes that it will even better. I hope you all like the photos, and I have a ton more. So if you want to see something up close, I probably have a pic of it. Thanks and keep watch. Cause my custom Banshee Inferno Mode, is up next.

Thanks man. I didn't just want to just do a straight black paint job. I wanted to give it a bit of detail. Make it brighter but keep things dark at the same time.

Wow this is the first time you fully painted a kit? This is really good, congrats man.

thwalker13
May 31, 2012, 2:25 PM
Yep. This was the 1st kit that i have every fully painted. I'm currently working on the Destroy Mode now. I'm hoping to make it much better than the Unicorn Mode. And thanks. I'm glad that it turned out as good as it did.

woot! the banshee is done! Looking good thwalker13!

Love the copper and black color contrast. All the metallic pieces really pop out. I think you nailed those custom colors down.
But I would also like to add, it seems that there are some parts have thicker layers of paint than other places, and a bit of drip marks here and there. But they are minimal. I think some of what I think maybe thicker layers of paint maybe the imperfections in the plastic showing through which can play tricks on my eyes.

I know there are some places that I messed up on. It would probably help if I had some practice.

Alright. This is the 2nd part of this project. The very long awaited. Destroy mode. I still have a few more pics to take. I want to make a custom version that uses the Claw, Beam Magnum, and Shield all in one. I also think that is how I will be displaying this bad boy. But, without further a due. I give to all of you. My version. Of the HGUC RX-0 Banshee (Destroy Mode)

I took a few with the flash on. In hopes that it might show just how shiny the Psycho Frame is.

Lovely psychofLame! Glad to see you kept the vents and weapons a different color like they're supposed to!

Thanks guys. Yeah my goal for this build was to make a sort of authentic/custom paint job. Where it looks like how the Banshee is supposed to look. But with a custom feel to it. And I think that I have accomplished that.

Dude. DUDE!!! YES YES YES!!! How's it feel to have made something look so much better than it would have right out of the box? Well done!

Really freakin awesome man. I can see now why people paint Gunpla. And if I could I'd paint every kit I bought. lol

Watching your hard work and enthusiasm has kind of set off a spark in the hobby for me. You've inspired me to take on a task I have yet to try. I'm going to completely paint a MG from inner frame to outer armor. Your hard work has showed me what can be done and you stepped up your game! It's my turn!

thwalker13
June 25, 2012, 10:12 PM
WOOHOO!!! I must ask. Which MG kit have you chosen? I know my 1st MG kit I'm going to paint from inside to outside. And I also know the PG kit I want to do as well. So, Joe. What have you chosen?

BTW I'll try to get more pics up as soon as I can.

Joe
June 25, 2012, 11:51 PM
Actually, there are six... And you already know what six MG's I'm working on next :-P.

And just for giggles and shits. I dusted off a very old kit that I got when I was little. Back when Wal-Mart would occasionally carry Gunpla kits. The RX-0 Banshee compared to it's late, great ancestor. The RX-78.

HAHA! love the last bit there!

You can't see it, sir, but I am typing while standing because you get a standing ovation from me! Well done. I really like the rifle and the bazooka, the psyco frame on the shield has a really cool lava lamp look to it like liquid or something in the fist picture, awesome!

thwalker13
June 27, 2012, 7:50 AM
Thanks Joe. I couldn't have done it without all the advise that you gave me. And yeah I'm really glad that I hand painted the red onto the Psycho Frame. I know I wouldn't have gotten the same affect that I did.

Also: This might not be the end of my build for this guy. I have an idea rolling around in my head that if I feel like I can pull it off. I'll be delving deeper into the customization of this guy. But that is all I'm going to say. For now...
