MG Wing Zero Custom WIP 02 -Guhhhh-
More experimentation! Also, wing installation complete.
Trying something new, an attempt at airbrush shading… without the airbrush!! huhhhh?! I was sanding away the nubs on the legs i got an idea for an experiment. I sanded most of the areas on the leg, i missed a few spots but should have sanded it completely. I did this so that paint from the gundam markers would stick to the surface so i can do some “shading” ^^;
I used the silver gundam marker and dabbed it on the tip of a cotton swab, then proceeded to try and lightly rub it along the areas you would normally spray with an airbrush. Of course control was an issue and it often was blotchy, I used some alcohol to clean it up a bit but that kinda spread it out. In the end, the surface is a bit rough and it doesnt look airbrushed but does add a weathered look?
Oh im sure your all looking forward to the battle damage right? Well, i finished the model with battle damage and everything:
Actually i just have him mostly disassembled and just starting at the parts for another experiment *jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii~* My attempt at customizing with this kit has provided a reality check of how much an amateur i am at gunpla… orz how humbling ;_;
