HGUC Gaplant dio
« on: August 30, 2011, 06:13:04 AM »
This is gonna be my first time pla-plating and making a diorama. Also my first time trying to complete something in a single month. I've worked on a bunch of models and messed with their textures a lot so I'm pretty decent with putty. Hopefully this will turn out well.

The thighs have been sanded, filled with Tamiya basic(grey), sanded, melted with cement further, sanded, but there's still a few seams I can't get rid of. I'm going to spray some primer on to check it out properly.


I've started work on the right binder. I'm making the front section a bit thicker to accommodate having a double beam rifle on the right binder instead of one on each.


Now I've run into a bit of a snag. I've hallowed out this area and expected to put in an exhaust grill, but I didn't realize that the other piece would block it. Now I have a hole in the binder and no idea what to do with it.  @_@


Cemented some pla-plates on top of the side skirt armour. Gonna sand that stuff into shape when it dries.


Filled in the back skirt armour with some plates. I'll do this with the front and side skirts later.

Almost finished with the right binder, just a few more pla-plates. Also gave up on the double beam rifle idea as I can't get them to align properly.




Covered the sideskirts


The diorama in progress.

Been working on some other projects as well as my high school graduation getting in my way.
The dio's been covered in Tamiya texture paint. Still need to cover the base more with a smaller brush.
