WIP : Bandai 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon Pt.3 – Painting & Finishing

Painting begins with a base of black using both Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black and Gunze Surfacer Black. Surfacer gives a smoother finish especially when thinned with Mr Leveling Thinner. Unfortunately the smell is a lot stronger. For the joints and other gray parts I used Mecha Color Grey Z. The black parts were given a …...

WIP : Bandai 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon Pt.2 – Construction

It has taken awhile but here we are with more work done on the GM Cannon. I replaced the left fist with a clenched one from a Builders Parts set. The cover for the back of the hand is the kit part modified to fit the new fist. I added a Kotobukiya nozzle to cover …...

WIP : Bandai 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon Pt.1 – Construction

It’s actually quite strange that Bandai still hasn’t issued any of the Federation mobile suits in the MSV line but have done so for the much newer Origin MSV. Oh well, if I knew what’s going on, I’d be the product line manager for Bandai. In any case, I sought to modify the Origin MSV …...

WIP : Bandai HGUC GM Space Command Pt.2 – Painting & Finishing

Before painting, the tedious task of fixing seamlines and sprue marks begin. I’ve been turning to using an old bottle of Tamiya IJN Gray as a primer coat to reveal the problem areas. Various fillers were used including AK Interactive putty, super glue and epoxy putty. Painting can then begin! I decided to go with …...

WIP : Bandai HGUC GM Space Command Pt.1 – Construction

Next up is yet another kit that I have finished snapfitting for a long time. It also continues my EFSF grunt mobile suit collection (what a mouthful). This is one of the earlier HGUC releases so it suffers from the typical problem of its vintage: overly large hands, limited poseability and a somewhat squat stature. …...

WIP : Bandai HGUC 1/144 GM Quel Pt.2

After the EF-111A Raven, I’ve been trying to get this completed before the end of April. I tried to get some paint variation like my previous build but it didn’t turn out that well. I also tried to see if I can get a stronger base coat to prevent the paint from being scratched off …...
