    Quad Speargun!

    This part was the biggest PIA because it is so small.
    The Nemo wanted to try it out

    Got a chance to cast clear parts.
    I'll use a transparent orange over the lens then prime and paint the rest

    Re: RAG-79 Aqua GM 1/144

    There was so much to do after I got the parts from them, I don't think it would work.

    Anyhow, all parts are primed and color is going on.....woohoo...I'm nerding out right now.

    I don't know if this will come out right, but I'll keep going.



    These parts are the smallest yet. I figured the model would look better if they wer not part of the torso mold

    Well the painting is mostly done
    Had a bit of trouble with the Tamiya white primer not setting up...aughh

    I'm rushing for the weekend
    But it looks like a Rag79!

    I would drill out the head and put an LED in there, if you had time. But this thing is going great so far. Nice paint work.

    Ha
    I'm trying the led today
    I have an opaque as back up
    The paint got a little "gooey" on the head, so I may need to scrap the transparent one.
    Thanks guys

    Re: RAG-79 Aqua GM 1/144

    I think part of the problem with the gooy paint is that the transparent resin is different from the normal resin. I was told that if you painted the clear resin you had to let the paint cure even longer. depending on what paint you are using.

    Naw, it was the Tamiya surfacer. It's been the same on all parts

    Re: RAG-79 Aqua GM 1/144

    The head got messed up, but when you have molds of the parts it's not that big a deal.....

    I forgot how hard it is to paint something the size of a penny........The panel liner should help...weathering in general should help my lack of painting skills...

    A dark gray wash will sort the head and it will look fantastic. Paint is looking good on the other parts.

    Finished!

    Still needs some love, but this is as far as I go tonight. It's a little more weathered than planned, I have big hands.
    Going to the Gunpla meet tomorrow in Fullerton.
    I'll post better pics on Sunday.....

    Look really great, i like the well used look myself. Have you had any thoughts about putting him on a water front diorama?

    Thanks
    I was thinking of making two with the AMA-X7 Shamblo Claw.
    It would be a scene from the movie on the carrier deck.

    In reality, I'm probably moving on to another conversion kit.
    Most likely the MS-14D Desert Gelgoog

    Re: RAG-79 Aqua GM 1/144

    Why put it in a diorama? With the amount of customization this kit has it would be very powerful in Gunpla Battle.
