After a hectic day at work I finally can get to continue with my MG Exia! Nothing beats work blues like building Gundams. Well here we go!
A little surgery on the hands..
My trusty sawing tool
Now I have movable individual fingers!
My cheap and good black panel line marker. I used this on the yellow and blue parts. Can be found at Popular Bookstores ^^
Before panel lining
After panel lining ^^. Helps to define the armour further.
For the white parts i'll be using this. This is way better then the regular water based gundam markers. The tips don't fray that easily ^^
This marker comes with 2 types of tips. A small tipped one for this hard to reach places.
And a fat assed tip for mass panel lining
I prefer using grey marker than black for white parts. Gives a nice shading effect.
After cleaning up with tissue paper. Surprisingly for this whole kit I only need to use one piece ^^
Rei toying with the GN Drive while I am panel lining..
Panel lining really brings out the details.
Well at this stage after doing all the basic stuff. I’ll be disassembling the armor parts for a gloss coat for the decals, whereas the internals i will be giving them a flat coat plus silver dry brushing. I’ll also be sanding the hands to remove the mold lines! argh so many of them and also the mold lines on the gray part below the knee cap armor.
Till the next post!
