Bandai Master Grade 1:100 Full Armor Gundam FA 78-1 Custom repaint of the Mobile Suit Variations Full armor Gundam. This is the original design of the full RX 78 before the iconic "Thunderbolt" Gundam was introduced. Originally this kit was printed in almost all blue colored plastic. I gave the kit my own color scheme inspired by other variations of the FA 78-1.
Good day fellow builders Sunday I completely another custom build for a group event I'm running. My process is simply this: Assemble the model Take it apart and organize the pieces in a container for prep. Scribe some panel lines to bring out a few fine details. Prime the model all in black primer followed by sparying white on certain pieces. This is to allow the vibrant colors to keep their shade. Paint using various lacquer paints(modo hk, hobby mio, and sms. Enamels and acrylic were used for fine detail work. Assemble the model again with the painted parts. Apply a clear gloss top coat Apply water slide decals in both 1:100 and 1:144 scales Once that was finished I top the model off with another gloss coat. Finally I mask off several secrion with ak camo putty. Now I normally like this stuff but due to the very warm weather it's been a challenge to remove. Especially in spots at the head. The model then is given a final top coat tying the whole project together. I am now working on a display base to really make the model stand out.
This is a two in one model kit is project. The Gouf is the hg Revive 1/144 and the Dodai is an old 80's kit. Both have been installed with magnets for better stability. Both kits have been black based, airbrushed filled by decals and other details. Wooden base was made with wood filler, foam, modeling trees, rocks, and the small hovercraft from another kit.
Ok, so this little gem (in 1/100 scale), is a kit I won as part of the Gundam Grand Prix event that was sponsored by the local anime-japanese-otaku yearly convention "San Japan", here in San Antonio, Texas. I won the kit thanks to the famous Odaiba diorama y'all saw on the latest IPMS Journal. It is a limited, exclusive and special edition of the originator of all the Gundam things: the RX-78-2. In this case, the plastic sprues are clear and translucent, and some parts are colored (the original plastic is colored, not that Band ai colored them after the "imprint"). It is only sold at "The Gundam Base", the Gundam mega-store in Japan. But you can buy it on-line, or buy the regular version with normal plastic sprues. Just look for "Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. 3". Enough. Now photos. Photo of me, the Odaiba diorama and the RX-78-2 kit.
