MG RX-78 Gundam V 2.0 Progress Pt. 2

Posted in Gundam on 3 March, 2009 (20:59)

All coming together now! For some reason I always deviate from the order set by the instruction manual and put the weapons together first.. I like to feel i’m getting somewhere and it drives me forward when i’m fiddling with all the internal parts! Anyone else do this too?

I’m still amazed by all the detail packed into every piece of this kit, the shield even has the retractable heat shield so you can mimick re-entry 🙂

I have however ballsed up the beam javelin a little, the matte gundam marker pink doesnt really capture the effect. Would’ve been better off leaving it clear! i’m hoping i can thin this colour out a bit and maybe wash over it with some gloss to shiney it up some.
