Model In-Progress / Stealth Astray Gundam (Red Frame)
« on: February 28, 2009, 07:55:20 AM »
I'm just about to finish my Mod on Astray Red Frame. Tryin' to apply everythin' I've learned in this site... Folks in here are so damn great!

Current status is at 94%.

Decided to change all white parts to black (I actually messed up with the decals because of the flat paint that I used previously).

Here's some snapshots and I'm sorry I don't have a decent workplace just yet...

this was taken one and a half year ago (around November 2007...)

Feb 2009... after conversion from white to black... still in progress....

Adding a lil' drama on my flat lousy black paint... Burnt Iron on a dry brush...

And the problem with flat paint against decals... SPECIAL THANKS TO --CHAOS THEORY-- for his pieces of advise.

Hands off... Skewers to paint, skewers to dry... (I know, my working table, yes, that's it!)

Now trying to scratchbuild the DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN... First time to use putty, it's fun!

from now on I love Aquaeous Metallic Paints so crisp (look at the Torso!)... I made the decals worked on the flat paint by re-filing the surface and applied another coat of glossy paint...

Done? I Think so...

Where do you put during siesta?

I also modified the horn (whatever we should call it...)

well, that's all for now gonna think and work about the samurai....
Thanks for viewing...

As always, comments and suggestions are always welcome...

That kit is huge! where did you get that kit from?

I'm starting to like Gunze's metallic paints too... I just applied it to my Astray Red Frame and the result was awesome! So crisp!

I like the details on the legs up to the LED.

Thanks for bringing ORDER, CHAOS...  :D

Model Gallery / GF's First Time: SD Gundam... Hand Painted
« on: February 08, 2009, 12:51:15 AM »
This was her work with a SD Gundam that tempted me to hand paint my destiny gundam... Hope you guys like it too...

Sorry. The person who owns that site was banned here. :twitch:

Browsing, Searching around i found a site that might be of a big help. I sent Fichtenfoo a pm asking for some permission to refer people to another site. just waiting for his response though. Thank you much..

You can get good results with hand painting, but I think the rule is that you need to make sure the paints are sufficiently thinned (this applies to airbrushing as well so it is not exclusive to hand brushing). This means that it will take several coats to cover the part. Did you think the Tamiya at all when you brushed it on? I've used Tamiya before and it's a little thick for brushing on so I would suggest thinning the paint next time. You should also try to skewer the parts so that you can minimize touching it with your hands.

Yes I did, but I really can't tell if I'm doing the right mixture. I browsed some articles about the formula in this forum but I don't seem to find one. As much as I know I just need to add 1 part of thinner to 2 parts of paint. I already bought some skewers and blu tacks to hold the parts. Well I'm glad I knew all about this because Im about to repaint my Red Frame.... Thanks!

My first gundam looked way worse than this. Kudos for the bravery to post it and the desire to make the next one better.

We have some real brush artists around the forums. Of course Lin.K paints by hand but Zerobxu and Maschinen Krueger also paint with a brush.

Zero wrote an article for the help forum that contains quite a bit of info on formula and application.

I dont know whats wrong but the link says "I'm Off Limits." but I appreciate it though.

Another problem with paint brushes is the tendency of the paint to look very thick.

I ran out of canned gas that came with my MK Pro Spray, and i saw my girlfriend having fun hand painting one of my SD Gundams with silver paint then dry brushing it with black paints. I noticed that its starting to look great so I decided not to wait for the canned air and hand painted my Destiny Gundam as well. Its not the kind of result that i was looking for but i had fun finishing it.

Now my Astray is next... gonna learn more before messing up again

can we use this as a protector for the gundam models?

Model Gallery / My First Attempt: Destiny Gundam 1/144 FG (Hand Painted)
« on: February 03, 2009, 11:42:12 PM »
This was my first attempt to gundam painting. I'm not really satisfied with the outcome so I'm expecting alot of areas for improvement. BDW I used Tamiya acrylics and Surfacer 1000 with a paint brush and MK-I Pro spray, masking tapes and patience with a little amount of imagination.

I'm bracing myself and here it is...



Here's my Redframe Astray Praying to the gods because he's next... HAHAHAHAH!

just ignore the background on this one:

I'm currently working on my "Stealth Astray Red Frame" (i got the concept from the B2 stealth bomber i watched on Discovery Channel using flat black body paint, and grey decals, I'l post the pictures as soon as i finished it since I'm at work most of the time). I'm done with the black paint and had added some weathering on it already.
Now the problem is the water slide decals does not want to stick on the parts. I'm sure its water slide because I've tried to soak it already and it does comes off the paper backing, I've tried to put it onto the parts but there are bubbles inside the decals. (I used epoxy acrylic spray paint "pylox" flat black). Is there another secret procedure on how to get this done aside from soaking it with? Thanx...

Great color combination. Brilliant! Something just popped out of my head now... Am still working on my Red Frame Stealth Astray, though.
