Hi viewers! Time for to show one of my latest work! Actually I have finished this guy long before I finished the Sinanju KO kit. My initial photos were crappy so I had to redo them. This kit is pretty interesting! He can transform into a mobile armor just like Rezel and other MS like them. This is the second kit that I applied battle damage, the first one was Age-1 Titus. Adding battle damage, although really time consuming, is quite fun! Especially when you get to the part where you put bullet holes or melted parts.
As usual I used chrome silver for the scratch marks, for the bullet holes and melt parts, I still used my own method which is burning toothpicks and sticking them to the area I want a bullet hole effect. After I have melted the parts, I painted some chrome silver on for that melted metal effect and some copper for corrosion or something. Lastly I experimented and used desert yellow in weathering the white armor areas. Overall he looks good in a distance, but you will see that I did the weathering hastily when you zoom in. He’s a big model compared to the usual HGs, and a bulky one at that too! He has a cool ‘long blade rifle’, It’s actually a beam pistol with a long barrel attachment with a heated blade at one side. The two units on his left and right arm is the Hrududu II which produces a strong beam. He can fire 3 powerful beams at once, two from his Hrududu II and one from the long barrel beam pistol. Oh and I pbainted the yellow parts gold leaf, the tube on his arms copper and the inner frame gun metal as usual. The long beam pistol can be mounted on his right shoulder, I think this is for added power or something, I’m not sure. Again we have the irritating clear stickers lol! XD I sticked them as best as I can. Painted the thrusters on the legs copper, then some titanium gold on the rectangular panels. The ugly clear stickers, but I still put them on haha! XD This is also the first kit that I tried using enamel paint in panel lining, wash as some may call it, its because you dilute the enamel such that it will run through the lines.I did some more photos using black background, but it turned out dark, lazy to edit:
I had a hard time transforming him into the mobile armor mode and ended up not doing it anymore haha! 🙂 He’s suppose to have two beam sabers, I messed up the paint job of the other one. XD Oh and he has a different v-fin for the mobile armor mode, too bad I was not able to show it in the photos.
Anyway overall he’s a pretty interesting kit:
What I like about this kit:
1. Different build structure since it can transform into a mobile armor
2. Nice set of weapons
3. Large and bulky compared to usual HGs
4. Comes with its own action base.
5. Comes with clear decal stickers.
What I don’t like about this kit
1. The beam sabers are of single color, you have to paint them to look nice.
2. It’s hard to follow the instructions in transforming him into a mobile armor.
3. Too bulky that its takes up a lot of shelf space XD
That’s it for now! Till next post! I’m doing an MG kit next! 😀
