Gunpla Decal Application Tutorial (Dry Transfer and Water Slide)

Hi guys! Here’s another article that I wrote for fromjapan. Ever finished an MG kit then you saw how massive the amount of decals were? And you were just so intimidated and afraid that you’ll ruin your kit that you did not go through with applying the decals? Well, be afraid not! Because it’s just intimidating but not really hard to do if you get the hang of it! Here’s the article that I wrote about application of dry transfer and water slide decals. Enjoy! And I hope it helps out fellow Gunpla hobbyists out there! 🙂

HGBF 1/144 PF-78-3A Gundam Amazing Red Warrior (Custom Painted)

Hello guys! This is my latest work: a custom painted HGBF 1/144 Amazing Red Warrior from the Build Fighters series. This is actually the product of a Gunpla hand-painting tutorial article I wrote for a private company. Too bad I can’t post the article on my own blog because of SEO concerns. But of-course I will create a new one so that I can post a Gunpla hand-painting tutorial for my own blog.

You can find detailed mobile suit information here: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/PF-78-3A_Gundam_Amazing_Red_Warrior

Things I did:

1. Usual nib mark cleaning.

2. Hand-painted all inner frame parts and base coating of weapons using Tamiya Gun Metal.

3. Hand-painted vulcans on the head unit and on the waist unit using Tamiya Dark Iron. Thrusters on the shoulders are also painted using Dark Iron.

4. Hand-painted details using a combination of Tamiya Gold Leaf, Copper and Flat Aluminum.

5. Panel lining using Copic Multiliner.

6. Applied custom water slide and dry transfer decals.

7. Top coated all non-metallic parts with Bosny Clear Dull/Matte spray can.

And viola! Enjoy the photos!
