Hi! Had more practice in airbrushing using this kit, it was a friend who gave me this and was bought from Hong Kong, thanks!
He’s not a usual HG 1/144 kit, instead of 1/144, he’s 1/550 in scale because he is humongous in the MS world. On the box it says HG mechanics, upon doing a little research, I found out that this line is mainly MSs that are huge like the Dendrobium!
The kit actually includes two miniature MSs, a Gundam and a Zaku like MS, too lazy to paint them though coz they’re so little, I’ll get back to them when I have the energy.
I actually repainted this kit 3 times! First I planned it to have a Bumble Bee Yellow like color, but failed in doing so, the finish was so bad that I had to scrape everything and redo. The second time around, I tried to paint him using a “The O”color, but then again I failed, or hated the output. The final color looked literally like I sprayed some fresh shit on him. On the third time, I decided to paint him a nice metallic red and at last, was satisfied with the output.
What I did:
As usual snapfit the kit, sanded the nub marks, then primed everything using Bosny Gray Primer. For the base color, I just used Tamiya Flat Aluminum using the airbrush to have a subtle metallic finish, then when everything has dried, sprayed some Tamiya Gloss Red. I noticed that the normal Tamiya Gloss Red has a different red tint finish compared with the flat red. The other parts I just sprayed some Silver. Then I did enamel wash method to panel line him using some Tamiya Black Enamel paint. Finally sprayed Flat topcoat to seal everything.
Enjoy the photos!
