I had this snap fitted gouf ignited sitting on my desk for god knows how long…bought it for about SGD $15 only haha on one of those OG clearance sales. ^^ I like its updated look as a gouf and with the added flight pack it quite a looker hee. Here is my take on this classic kit so operation dust storm starto!
Lets deal with the seams first
After sanding with 400 to 1000 grit ^^. Seam removed
Sometimes while sanding, the panel lines get sanded away..time for some rescribing
After rescribing ^^. Glad my experience on my O gundam was put to good use here
Blah…dull spikes…time for some sharpening hehe
Mr Hobby Mate Rotor ^^ comes with various changeable heads for various sanding jobs.
Will be using this head for the job
Clipped the spike to a crocodile clip and then use the rotor to sharpen ^^
Now thats what I call a spike!
Comparing with the original spike
I don’t like the thick looking edeges of the leg armor
Using the rotor, I thinned the edges.
I do a bit of modding for easier painting
Cut off the sides so that I can insert into the back
It fits ^^
Got this idea from Ngee Khiong haha. Origami is a useful skill
Well I had to wear a face mask while doing all this sanding….too much dust…don’t want it in my lungs hee.
Well my gf’s calling me!
Till the next post!
