CycoXIII (@SoCalGunpla)'s WIP

Here is my current WIP! I just finished airbrushing my Flauros. I learned a lot, but ultimately I love it. I still need to gloss coat, decal/panel line, and matte top coat. Let me know what you think, and what I could do better next time!

Looks great

Nice! I did something similar with my Flauros, but I painted the tips of the V-fin gold instead of white like the show. Looks so much better than the sticker that comes with it.

Thanks guys!

Char, I completely forgot about the white parts at the tip of the V-Fin. I’ll probably do that the Titan Gold, like the Yellow acceents that I have.

Yes! That’s exactly what I did. I think it looks so much better than the white.

Nice Stein! I finished mine about a month or so ago, did a complete repaint. Took me entirely too long but it came out great.

This looks so amazing! I just got the HG and you guys got me thinking about painting it!

Thanks French, I plan on doing a custom color scheme on mine too :slight_smile: Also, yours looks great. I follow you on Instagram, and love your work dude.

Go for it Char! He is such a fun kit, with so many possibilities of color combinations.

Any plans for mods? Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Nothing too crazy. Custom pain scheme, make him pop a little more. I know the Stein Narrative comes with pieces from the original Stein (Like the beam rifle), so I will build that for him for sure.

I did think about modding the booster a little bit.

Couple more pictures of my Sinanju Stein Narrative. Building is complete, and I found out that he cannot hold the second beam rifle in his left hand, due to the way the hands sit. So, I modified the rifle (Trimmed it up and sanded it) so he could hold it. And then, of course, I took an obligatory Wing Zero pose picture :smile:

Next is to prime him for painting.

Started work on the Narrative Gundam C-Packs to keep me busy while I get ready to prime and paint Sinanju.

I swear that you and I are on the same wavelength. Everytime I see something you’re working on I’m either just finishing the same model or about to build/purchase it.

You got good taste my dude! I’m absolutely loving the kits from the unicorn and narrative series. They’re so much fun.
