    Re: XXXG-01H's Works In Progress

    If anyone is interested, my Hi-Nu 2.0 project has officially moved to my Finished Works section!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    OK, I need some opinions for my current Launcher/Sword Strike Gundam project! I want to do a different color scheme for the Strike so I found some high quality lineart and colored it in GIMP. I played around with ideas, but only 2 have really stuck with me. Please have a look!

    I call this one the "Buster Strike", as it's colors are based on the Buster Gundam:


    The 2nd one is basically the deactivated mode of the Strike:


    Which one do YOU like?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Sooo...seeing as nobody offered opinions on which color scheme they liked, I just decided to go with the deactivated color scheme, except I'm going to add the same lighter blue to the knees ala the Duel.

    The second one looks fine. How much lighter of a blue you thinking of using?

    If your going to make the knee blue as well as the feet and mid section might as well make it look even and paint the shoulder armor blue as well. Just the dark gray parts. That woul put the light blue evenly throughout the strike. Then put the bark blue in the sides of the legs (those long armor parts ) and do a touch of the dark blue around the elbow area.

    I was thinking of using Model Master's Cobalt Blue (flat) or Tamiya's Brilliant Blue (TS-44, the same I used on my Hi Nu; since it's gloss I'd be spraying some flat clear over it) spray paint for the lighter blue parts. The darker blue parts I've already done in Tamiya's AS-8 Navy Blue spray paint. It looks fantastic. It has more of a satin finish to it:



    What it looked like before:

    Hmmm...like this?

    The blues work like that. What about the backpack?

    Though I do have the Aile Strike RM (and the backpack actually works with the older Strike) I'm not going to use it on this project, so I didn't bother to color it on the lineart.

    Re: XXXG-01H's Works In Progress

    That is kind of what I meant but it works too. But the dark blue spots I was talking about are the dark grey pants on the inside and outside of the legs. The long braces that go from the ankle to the knee. The long thing armor parts. But I like the way you have the light blue. It will definitely look bad ass!

    Re: XXXG-01H's Works In Progress

    One thing I've noticed about this particular Strike kit in working with it is the amount of snapped male pegs on pieces. I don't think I've ever had so many of them snap on me before like this. Luckily the pieces still fit. Still, it's a bit disconcerting.

    Re: XXXG-01H's Works In Progress

    I always cut them down and at an angle so that I can take it apart easier. So I have. never really had a breaking problem.
