    Re: LGT Construction Shack (WIP)

    Hi guys, back to work on my model now. So I brought this recently, have the idea to add more metallic into the model.



    I converted some of the spare pieces again to finally complete the leg. I finally can move on to the top part.









    - - - Updated - - -

    I painted the pieces that I cut yesterday and the here is the result.



    This is before the top cover



    This is after I added the top cover on. May have some challenge to glue this part securely on...




    So I need some suggestions. I made 6 dots (3 on each side) as positions for the metallic 'screw' that I brought (see pic on top). So here comes my question. Does it looks nicer to have 3 smaller screws or just 1 medium screw at either one of the position?

    So those chest things on the sides of his waist will be skirts right? Not a box like structure?

    Oh u caught that. Yeb not a box structure that I originally plan. The part u saw was originally part of the leg that i will be using to form the rest of the waist.

    So here is the complete lower torso. It looks more humanoid than a robot which is exactly what I wanted.



    I added some tubes/hoses from the old hands cut them out (see above posts somewhere) and glue them onto the empty space at the side of the knee caps. I didnt quite take a pic to show the completed idea looks like.




    My front part of the lower torso broke... So... that got me thinking should I redo it... The colour scheme is too dark for my taste but will sleep over it first...

    thanks iris. Yah I also really like how the colours are turning out.

    Time for another update.

    I use lesser blue this time with my metallic black and I really like how the final result turns out. (Yes i broken the front torso up and re-paintiingish them)



    The white part are done.



    Here is the final result of the two. Might need to strain your eyes a little.



    I still have some resistors left so I will be using them on the markings that I made on the shoulder pieces.





    Lastly the metallic blue on the 'wings' that I am going to add into the shoulders.



    - - - Updated - - -

    I finish mostly the body now. Gluing all the parts together & I really like how things falls nicely together. Clearly there are some places to touch up but that got to wait until the glue are mostly cure first.

    Another update. Finished the head and the hands today so that means the customize HG is done. Now what is left is my weapons. 1 x small long sword that I will try to make it look like a stone sword, 1 x big broadsword that I wanna customize more and 1 x lance.

    Thanks Gobbla for the encouragement

    Last pics of the completed custom Helmwige.







    Next up is the giant great sword.



    I am going to drill up some holes where the red 1/2 sphere and the silver circle is going to be. The idea is the drill a hole slightly smaller that the pink sphere and insert that sphere in. The silver circle is just to indicate where I want the hole to be in that position. That is gonna be a through hole. If that looks good maybe I am gonna drill two more small ones on top of each other... I hope that I can do some symbols on the either front sides of the sword too since it is big enough to experiment on.



    The 'pippings' you see nearer to the ends are actually spare parts again from the build. This time is the arms. So those are gonna be bronze. Yes Steampunk is stuck with me. (For those who are reading the first time. I made a steampunk sazabi sometime ago.)



    - - - Updated - - -

    I have to stop working on the weapon for a while since I dont have the right drilling eq yet.

    While waiting for those to come I decided to start on another project. This time is just some painting on HG Master Gundam with Fuunsaiki! I really love the animation and now after God gundam I finally have the chance to build his master.

    Below are my colour choice. Not too fancy. Just some enhancement colours for the master and using shimming green for Fuunsaiki.

    Hi guys, Happy 2018~!

    long absence for me but I'm back to gunpla. And to continue finish off where I left...

    Base coat black nothing fancy.





    Fell in love with this blue during my previous build so I gotta use it again. I hope I can finish Master by this week and start Fuunsaiki the next.

    Re: LGT Construction Shack (WIP)

    finished applying first coat to my purple parts... looks good... final coat tomorrow



    - - - Updated - - -

    Forgotten that I have assembled part of the body. Semi finished blues and purple. Not bad overall.



    Sides added with a touch of green.



    Not gonna paint today.. Eyes are too tired after a long day's work.. Hopefully can finish up tomorrow and move on to the red parts.

    Re: LGT Construction Shack (WIP)

    great job! those metallics turned out great! I'm really digging the color scheme. Just curious, what 3 pieces are you missing?

    Thanks Mr. JQ for your comment The 3 pieces are circle in green below. Trying to find a way to fill them up tho.



    Going into my 2nd day of Fuunsaik now and as u may I have guess it from my master's colour scheme. I am looking to make Fuunsaik more of a headless horseman kinda horse. So Yellow (maybe overlay with orange for flames) and green.

    The green are base coated with black so it looks more eerie and darker looking.



    I plan to play around with the green a little more and gotten this



    So this will be overlaying the neo green that I posted with the yellow pic. The left are not painted with the fluorescent green, the right is after 1 coat. (Sorry its difficult to focus on them)




    The entire Fuunsaik's body will also be painted with shimmering green. effect looks good so far. 2 coat result.







    - - - Updated - - -

    Just a short update today. Just toying the idea to fill up the grooves using the fluorescence green and the outcome is really encouraging. This is just the first coat. I guess it could use a 2nd.



    - - - Updated - - -

    so..... I ran into a tiny (literately) problem. The smallest brush that I have at the moment is too big a tip for some of the smaller grooves so I need to visit the art store again to see if there is even smaller brush than this one. Gonna be a good test of steady hands, patients and eye power (which I lack now)


    In the middle of stripping the paint away for repainting btw hence the patches you see..



    p.s if some of you guys is not aware already. I only use hand brushes on my gundams.
