When I first started out building gundams, nub removal was probably the first thing that bug me the most. No matter how carefully I try to shave out the nubs using art knifes, I still won’t get a clean cut and worse you’ll find the area looking different from the rest. Next step probably we might take is to sand nasty spot. Even after you go to grit 1000, that spot will still look different from the rest of the parts argh… won’t want my mech going to battle with nubs sticking out in the middle of the battle…the enemies will probably die laughing.
Well for this little experiment I’ll introduce you the tools of the trade
Cotton bulb, 3 yr old toothbrush, polishing compound,
test piece from 0 gundam (sry dude..) and spare spectacle cloth
Well the experiment was a success and I think it offers a nice way for people who just like their gunpla out of the box minus the nubs. It will be quite a nice alternative if you are just not in the mood to paint… hmm maybe can try on my MG Exia…
Till the next post!
