The O (Resin Ver) WIP 2

Wow, I have been off the radar for a while I know. Sorry about that. Moving half way across the world, repairing a house, and driving 3000 mile will do that to a month. But, thats all past us now. I have been working diligently on my resin skills, via The O here. Actually, this kit is really easy clean up wise. Its not supposed to be a smooth finish version so that saves a ton of sanding time. And I rather like this ones rough look. Might even motivate me to weather it some. I am going to have to hand paint it because I don't have my airbrush here in my hotel room. I don't think they would like me to be painting in my room any way. (:

Below are the photos of where I am right now. I have completed the lower half and am about 50% done with the upper half. Hoping to be painting by saturday. But enough words. Pictures say more....

This is during the installation of the front waist skirt arms.

I love all the little details added to the waist here.
My only complaint is as you can see the kit came with one missing piece. The third finger for the arm. Call it battle damage I guess.

And an under the skirt shot a lot of hidden details to be painted.
On the chest. I didn't like how low on the body it set so I raised it a half inch or so. This is during the clean up and adding putty to build up the bulk of it a little more.

I didn't take any before pictures, but its better now trust me.

I also raised the head up a tiny bit. By doing so I was able to give it a more aggressive forward lean once I pinned it.
Thats where I am at for now. I am going back to work on the arms now. I have to figure out how to attach the huge gun to the arm, as there is no obvious way to do so. But thats all easy stuff.

As always, thank you for stopping by. T.G.


  1. Wow Russ, there's so much detail stuff to paint mate. I love that stabilizer with the cylinder thiny in it, it looks awesome. Can't wait to see the textured weathering too man. Keep us posted, I hope you get your AB back soon!

  2. Thank you, I will say due to my normal lack of love for weathering, I am going with a clean paint finish. It has a rough texture to it for sure though. Almost done too. (:
