Hi.

This is my recently comission work finished: Hasegawa's 1/72nd SV-51 from
Macross Zero.

Basically is the version used by Nora in the OVA, but the pattern of paint
was customized. It is Tamiya bright blue (to me, a close tone of the YF-21
color), Federal Standard Medium gray with the addition of the Nora's decals
vers.

To the base, I add 2 plates of plastic styrene, one of them I cut in few
squares and glue them to represent part of an airport or something like
that. Originally it has a white "5" but my client told me to add an extra
white "4" conforming a number "45". Before painting, was "texturized" the
surface. The color used on the base was FS 36375, Medium gray for the
dark shades between squares (post-shading) and neutral gray to unify the tones
of grays. Add some oil effects, dirt, dust on some points of the base.

Hope you like it.













Here's the gallery of the pics

Nice job on the kit,the tarmac looks really good too.
Doing the mask for the "5" must have been a pain in the ass...

Hi.

Thanks for your coment. Well, the base was the part of the work that I did faster. It took me around 3 days from the starting to the completion, in comparison with the model. I added the gallery pics. I draw the number lighter on the surface of the base, cut the tape masked following the marks. Don't worry if you can't do a "perfect curve". Apply some weathering effects, dirt, mud, etc, etc on that points and voila!

Regards

Nice!  I've often wondered what a SV-51 without that nasty purple (but with the pattern) would look like.  Great work and I'm sure your customer is happy.  :-)

That looks good but the base makes it look even better.
