Bandai 1/144 gundam
« on: April 20, 2020, 09:39:34 PM »

Hi all well it was supposed to arrive on the 30th, lucky me it arrived early.
What a great kit I've not used one drop of glue the fit it purfect (only downside is the kit has stickers instead of decals). I'm going to depict it rotting in a field I've read these tend not to rust much but I will be adding some.
This will really stretch my skills as my normal rusting techniques are done exclusively with enamels and pastels, obviously I cant use enamels on this plastic so will have to adapt and invent.
I've made a start on the weathering, I really think I will enjoy this first forage into gundam.

In my sons early teens we used to buy him one of these each Christmas.... cost a fortune ! I was always impressed by the mouldings, as all parts just lined up and clipped together, no glue needed at all.
One year when we were feeling flush we purchased a deluxe Gundam with LED's etc ...massive box and hundreds of pieces. Many detailed sub assemblies hidden behind flaps on the armour.... now that was something

My son still has a couple of these  stashed away somewhere in his flat.
