Howdy everyone! This will be my thread to post the long list of WIP’s I already have on the table and the ones to come in the future.
To start off with will be the HGUC FD-03 Gustav Karl…one heck of a chunky suit. At first I wasn’t so fond of the design, but its growing on me. I could see myself making another one in the future.
This was also my first attempt at using Laquer paints. Mr. Color brand to be specific. I don’t have a lot of colors on hand. So I had to custom mix the blue, red, and grey. All were sprayed at a rough 1/1 paint to thinner ratio.
Inner frame: Black green
Blue: 5 parts blue, 1 part red, 1 part black
Red: 5 parts red, 1 part black
Grey: 5 parts tire black, 3 parts white
thrusters/armement: Steel undercoated with black
The big thing I learned from this was to not mist coat laquers as they seem to get dusty in a way? So when covering make sure to go one solid wet coat where it is glossy.
While I wait for my decals to arrive I will do some small detail painting where I can. Once all is said and done I will post the final piece!
Any creative critisim, tips, tricks, or advice would be loved.
