WIP: HGUC Kampfer part 2

Continue with the metal parts. HGUC Kampfer got dozen of thruster, going to replace them with metal thruster. The back thruster is very easy to replace, just drill a hole at the slot and insert the metal thruster.

Commission build on 1/60 NG Freedom Gundam. Nothing much to show, as it just out of box build, took only some photo during the progress, and its not complete photo. So, basically just brief explanation on the steps i done.

NG (none grade) Gundam is kinda troublesome to paint and remove seamlines, as the parts is sandwich together. The inner frame with different color need to paint first then masked before sandwich the outer layer and remove the seamlines of the outer layer. Here is example of masking i done on the torso. The light blue waist is painted and masked before i assemble the dark blue part. Same goes to the legs and arms.

Face plate painted with candy color, silver on the back of the clear part, clear color at the front. Everything painted and masked before insert into the helmet.

1/6 scale Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1 rifle, painting wood grain effect.

Bought Dargon model kits 1/6 scale PIAT & Enfield No.4 Mk1 rifles a couple of months ago. Now want to start working on it with my newly purchased Lifecolor gun & weapon set.

Next would be painting, i start with the wood stock. First apply the lifecolor light wood and shade with dark wood color.

Next is painting the wood grain effect, here i use oil color, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ochre. Apply a layer of Burnt Umber on the wood stock, then blend in lighter color like Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ochre.DSC06265 300x225

The result would be like this, i used a flat tips brush, and create the wood grain by dragging the brush along, the oil paint need to be thick, therefore it leave obvious brush stroke, where it will be the illusion of wood grain. I had waited 4 days for the oil paint to completely dry.IMAG0511 225x300

The next step is to paint the varnish of the stock, i used clear brown, clear orange and clear black.

IMAG0514 225x300 Next would be painting the metal parts. Stay tuned for more updates.
