As my time in San Diego continues I am working on two kits at once. Its fun and provides a nice break while I plan out the customization for each kit as I am really working on getting things done. I start with the G-Gundam. I added plating to the rear wings. Adding depth to the flat parts.
I reinforced the plate in the back so that it would be more rigid.
But it was not to be. I spent about 2-3 hours working on this and getting it all lined up. When I put the top part on no matter what I did I could not get it to line and and look clean. So I walked away for a. I came up with this solution in my sleep...weird I know there are times when I dream of the solutions to Gundam build issues. (and yes I know the Kshatriya is not a Gundam) Mobile suit issues.
This is the fix that I came up with. I pushed the plate up from the bottom and Pro-welded it in place. The only challenge here was to get the posts back through with out cutting too much out.
After all the glue was dry, I added a lot of plate and other detail up parts to get the details I wanted for the psycho frame. I am not looking for a super smooth build, but when do I normally build a smooth kit? Not too often.
And here is what the completed set up looks like. If I had the want to do LEDs it would look amazing, but I don't for this kit. Being an HG kit I am going to cut out a lot of sections to add the psycho frame look.
So far I have one completed a second one with the smooth plating done. hoping to get some more done soon, but I am pretty focused on the G-Gundam right now. Its got a flow going and I am not looking to stop it. I am hoping to be able to get the paint and have it done soon after I get home.
As always thank you for stopping by. T.G.
