Profile : SD Sangokuden Kochu Gundam
Where I bought it : Hobby Art Gallery at Sunshine Plaza
Phase : 1 – Sanding with 400, 600 to 1000 grit, cementing seams, sharpening edges and removing mold lines.
Tools used : Tamiya Cement, Sand paper various grit, hobby rotor, hobby knife, chisel, plus mask (especially for those with sensitive noses! not good to breath in so much plastic dust…)
Here are some of my work in progress pics
Cemented the seams with Tamiya cement, followed by sanding with 400 to 600 and finally to 1000 grit.
Introducing hobby rotor..hee good tool for sharpening spikes, comes with changeable heads for various jobs.
Before and after sharpening. Man better not touch it..
Sharpening the face armour with my hasegawa tri tool and chisel (not shown in pic). Amour picture at the top before sharpening. Bottom after sharpening. Picture on my left is the trusty old tri tool.
Some minor surgery for easy painting later
Some other parts that were also sharpen. Got to love pointy armours! Might need to rework on the arrows… don’t look like they could pierce anything…
Kochu Gundam ready for priming!
