Model In-Progress / My first WIP
« on: September 19, 2007, 07:28:04 PM »
Can I still be a lurker if I have a WIP, well I won't be making alot of progress on it between baby, school, work and keeping up a house but this thread might help. Here are the WIP shots.

This pic is the model, its an older 1/72 Nu from G-System. This also shows my biggest problem with this sculpt, the funny head.

What it is

Also my first question, what color is that on the neck. Its a wierd off blue grey kinda thing and I really like it. Im using Tamiya German grey for the dark color and flat white with a touch grey added for the white parts. Still need to figure of the mid-tone grey color.

Here is the work I did the the head, I was just messing around a touch here.

Head 2
Head 3

Now Im concentrating on the feet. Here are the ankle pieces, Im going to replace the resin cylinders with metal. I cant decide on brass and silver or painting the brass part black yet. That will come more towards final assembly as I don't want to epoxy on the metal bits yet.

Ankle Pieces

Thats all for now

p.s. Im not sure if I posting this right to share with photobucket, if the pics dont work I will try something different.

How should I could small metal tubing?

I have blass and aluminum but I cant seem to get a good strait cut on the very small sizes.


Pardon me if I completely trash any story, but I dont really know to much about the Gundam Universe.

Still gonna build a Kampfer though.

So far I have added some fuel tanks on the back. The small metal on pivots up and down but Im having a hard time figuring out how to make a ball and socket for the large white tanks.

I plan to add some things similar to the Sazabis fin funnel holders where the bazookas go also. And I have another spiked shoulder coming also.

And of course pictures so I dont get yelled at  :roll:
