Title: SD ZGMF-X56S/α Force Impulse Gundam
Post by: blackito on June 09, 2008, 09:32:47 PM
Well this is it. Finally done my third gundam kit ever. Funny thing about this kit is that I rushed it in the end because I wanted to show it to my Japanese teacher since I thought it was the last class but once I got there she told us that we still had two more weeks. So all the mistakes I did rushing the job could have been avoided :doh:. But for a third one am pretty satisfied with it. I used Samuel Decals and Did the panel lines with black oil paint except on the wings on which I used Naples Yellow. It's not perfect but for a third but do Enjoy !!
P.S. This is the first time am taking pictures with the mini studio I built so the lightning ain't too good. sorry

I wanted to make some poses with the beam rifle but then I realized that I forgot to build the appropriate manipulator for it and since am lazy I decided to start working on my next gundam instead :P

Did you use HDM resin parts on a SD kit? X_x  It looks great, however!

My third gundam was nowhere near this nice. (I painted over sprue nubs :doh:) Nice job here, be proud of it and learn as much as you can from it. I love the black panel lines especially on SD kits.

It looks like your paint was a little thick, try to thin it out more and spray lighter coats. There is also an art to perfect waterslide decals that I haven't figured out yet so don't let that bother you to much.

Thanks guys. Yes GlauG I used the 1/144 HDM manipulators for the same gundam. I was lucky I found them on ebay. I didn't even realized that my paint was too thick chaos but it is true that i spray usually one or two layers. I'll do something about that on the kit am currently working on. It's special so I want it to be better ^^
