Title: HGUC Gelgoog Jaegar custom (2 versions)
Post by: beertax on April 15, 2008, 11:38:43 AM
Hi all,

These are the 1/144 HGUC Gelgoog Jaegar Customs.  The white one is the Shin Matsunaga version and the red is the Char Aznable version.  For both I used the 2 upper fuel tanks and the shield from HGUC Gelgoog Cima Custom, as well as the rifle for the red version.  I added couple pla plates and kotobukiya verniers on the front skirts.  For the red version I mostly used the Bandai's Char Aznable's MG Zaku II 2.0/ Gelgoog 2.0 waterslides, and for the white version I mostly used Shin Matsunaga custom decals from samuels.  All paints were done with tamiya acrylics.  Enjoy!

Love the colors, excellent paint schemes, very classy.
Nice and subtle mods and great job with decals!
The red one is very Saz-like. Is the red color straight out of the bottle?

Thx!

No I made a batch of custom red by mixing tamiya acrylic red, orange and yellow.  I use this color for all my gunpla as I find the original red a bit too deep and blue.

btw the actual red is a bit redder than the one in the foto.  I still have not gotten the photo colors synchronized with reality.
