Title: MBF-P07 SD Astray Silver Frame H.M. Type Blackie custom
Post by: blackito on July 13, 2008, 07:57:21 PM
Ok guys sorry for the lack of updates on this project. Someone just quit at work. More working less modeling ...  not cool.:( I feel that I've done a better masking and paint job compared to the previous kits I've made but I still need to work on my wash. For some reason I didn't work well on the head.

I completely missed this one finished. The backpack is nice. you did a great job masking this tiny beast but your metalics are little thin in some areas. I hope you learned alot from this kit cuz its a hell of a teacher.

btw, what did tou wash it with?

Thanks guys.
Chaos I washed the kit with the same oil paint I use for my washes. But on the astray I used the same brand but a different color called Naples yellow. I messed it up as you can see but like you said, this kit is a good teacher. Besides the AOZ project am currently working on, I am planning to buy 5 astray kits and give them a power rangers team color scheme  :-). I just need to come up with different weapons and back packs for each one.

For a dark finish like the blue you used here try mixing in some titanium white with your wash. That should help it stand out a bit more.

Titanium white heh. Hmm that might be a good idea. I'll go look for something similar  today after work.

I loled when I saw this for some reason.
