    Monkeys Garage

    After a long time off the site I'm finally back. I have a new contract so I can get to the house a lot more and I have moved most of my building to a modeling room. I have started a new Gundam, the Proto Zero. Here are the beginning pictures. I'm painting every part of this one. I will go with a pearl finish and a lot of metallic finishes.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    These are all of the armor getting ready for the Pearl coat. Heck I even decided to paint Hero. [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a fun build. Interested to see the pearl colors. I have the same spray booth too. I see you have a mash grill on it. You using a different style filters?

    ct gunpla: I have the filter out right now. I just get new ones from home depoe or lowes and gut them to size. I F**ked up when I got it and used a "spray can" with it and that clogged up the filter almost instantly.

    Here is a picture of the test piece I have done for the red and blue parts.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
    I used Alclad chrome as a base, then used a holographic paint, then covered with alclad clear "hot metal red/blue.

    Zacu: I have been gone for a bit, but not idle. I have about 8 kits I'm working on right now. One is a Terminator Hunter killer tank but this is a gundam site so I won't bring that into it. I will get the other up soon.

    Zaku your wish is my command. These are a bit improv of pics. As you can see I will have fiber optics and L.E.D.s for full lighting and the chrome is coming out great so far. I love this Alclad stuff it make metal so easy. In the other pictures you can see the wheels being built and re modeled. I didn't like the why there was a big gap going down the middle of the road wheels so a filling I will go. Plus there are a ton of gaps in the model itself so it takes a bit of gap filling to make them disappear.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    Progress on the Proto Zero looks to be going well. The metallic colors are looking really good.

    And is that a machine from Terminator 2?

    Is that a lighting set specifically for the kit? Who makes it? Always like to bookmark different program boards.

    Re: Wing Proto Zero 00, I'm finally back!

    squee: No the lighting is all me. I had to do a lot of drilling to make routs and holes for all the lighting and wires. I took a LED light kit from an RC car, that will make the "police" lights that are on the head. Then I'm using 1.00mm and .50mm fiber optic to make all the little lights inside the head and on the guns, It is a bit of a rough going kind of make it up as you go system, but that is how you get better for the next one. That is a 1/32 scale I also have the flying Hunter Killer and an Apache gunship. I'm going to make them into a whole diorama.
