  1. I wondered what the bits were the are along the bottom and in the front arches and is that the battle Droid ? ( leg or arm joints ) when I saw it they were familiar but I couldn't think what they were, really excellent choice of greeblies as they really work well and make the look feel authentic
  2. I've taken Rocky apart ready for paint and you can see him in the background I some of the above pics but I haven't started painting him yet and will get started in the morning and hopefully will have him finished by the end of the day and more importantly before my daughter gets home from school as I want to keep this as a surprise Here's all the bits Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr I don't think he's quite as bad as Groot was but still not great, although I'm sure Rocket is in there and I just hope I can bring him over with a bit of paint Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr Pete
  3. bit of a leap forward now as I was I the groove and didn't want to stop to take pics, but what I did was keep adding the strong tone to the recesses details until I had the depth I needed to reinforce the detail, then I first drybrushed very lightly with Vallejo flat brown followed by another go with some Vallejo red brown mixed in and finally gradually added Vallejo Ivory to make the highlight. All this was done extremely lightly and I've many passes with a very soft brush then I went back with strong tone and a fine brush and picked out any creases that were wiped out by the drybrushing. Eyes were painted Ivory and the pupils painted in with black and green and yellow was used to simulate the moss all that's left to do is give it all a flat coat and gloss the eyes Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr Groot repaint after by Brundle Donk, on Flickr Groot repaint after by Brundle Donk, on Flickr
  4. next was to add Tamiya buff to the mix and I sprayed this on some edges and high spots, then army painter strong tone wash was applied to the recesses ( still wet in the pic and face not done at this point ) Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr
  5. I didn't strip or prime him and just gave him a wipe down with IPA after which I sprayed him with Tamiya flat earth and then in some spots with a bit of red brown added to the cup Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr and of course did the same deal on t'other side Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr
  6. My daughter is a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and last year I found a baby Groot figure in the bargain bin at Asda and gave that a bit of a tart up and gave it to her as a stocking filler for Christmas and she loved it here's before Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickr and after a lick of paint Untitled by Brundle Donk, on Flickrand I wanted to do something similar this year and I found a cheap bust of Groot with a figure of Rocky for cheap on ebay, the sculpting isn't bad but the paint job is shocking but I'm reasonably handy with paint and a brush/airbrush so thought I could do something with them and pressed the buy it now button I wanted to get this done last week but she's been off school with a bug so I had to wait until she went back today before I could crack on and I've only got one more day to try and finish it as after tomorrow I have commitments that will keep my me away from the bench until possibly the new year so need to get my skates on here's Groot at the start of play and whoever painted it at the factory must have done it after a liquid lunch ( look at his eyes ) he's got one at home and one away lol but aside from that he's a bit dark and a bit bland Groot and rocket repaint before by Brundle Donk, on Flickr and the back Groot and rocket repaint before by Brundle Donk, on Flickr
  7. excellent kitbashing in action and I love the colour you've used for the body it really works well with the shape, are some of those parts you've used from a strike Gundam ? I have one in the stash and some of the bits look similar. Pete
  8. hi Johnny, I just had a read through the thread and it's all looking rather splendid to me my friend, a shame the first shading didn't work out the way you had hoped but sometimes its nothing ventured nothing gained in this model building game so fair do's for giving it as bash and it's these kind of experiments that have led me to new techniques and effects. I'm still a relative newb to these robot kits but I do enjoy the ease of the build and no glue means I can't get tamiya extra. thin fingerprints all over the place lol. I do like the dirt/grime effect you have achieved with the Flory wash and the colour of the dark dirt looks very nice on the white and I will be dropping by more regularly to keep track of your progress. in regards to your comment regarding lack of step by step on some of the sci-fi threads, for me it's down to the Photobucket changes a while ago as that wiped out a few years of my stuff online and I went back and repaired some WIP threads after hosting my images on Flickr , but then Flickr changed their terms of service and reduced the amount of pics allowed with a free account from 1tb to 1000 images max ( I had over 6000 on there ) this really took the jam out of my donut to be honest and since then I haven't been posting anywhere near as often and my WIP threads aren't as involved as they used to be, I could have got a paid account the but with the way images hosting has been going I wasn't confident that down the line terms would change again and prices may rise to point that was more than I wanted to pay or image limits got reduced again but when I best update my Gundam thread I'll try and show a bit more of how I achieved some of the effects that I used keep up the good work mate and I look forward to seeing more progress on this one Pete
  9. The woodgrain is spot on Matt and very authentic Pete
  10. ground type one done too and i put some decals on them Pg Gp01 Gundam wip by brundledonk, on Flickr here he is with the ground type fighter in place and as with the space type there is more armour yet to go over it all Pg Gp01 Gundam wip by brundledonk, on Flickr Pg Gp01 Gundam wip by brundledonk, on Flickr
  11. both core fighters should be blue but I want to be a bit different so the space type on mine is red Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr connected to the engines ( the rear of the fighter becomes the backpack whenfirred to the Gundam and there will be covers over the engines at some point too ) Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr fitted to the Gundam ( there is more armour to go over this but I havent painted it yet ) Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr
  12. Mahoosive engines for the space type core fighter Untitled by brundledonk, on Flickr Untitled by brundledonk, on Flickr more engine bells ( should have posted this earlier but forgot ) Pggp01 thruster bells done by brundledonk, on Flickr
  13. the big party trick is the ability to fold up and this comes in very handy later on Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr thruster bells painted ( Alclad polished aluminum and some pale burnt metal, jet exhaust and clear blue ) Pggp01 thruster bells done by brundledonk, on Flickr Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr Pg Gp01 wip by brundledonk, on Flickr
  14. wow thats a blurry picture pic , try this one Pete Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr canopies masked and painted Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr a quick time jump and both noses are painted and decalled Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr and one of the little fellas sitting in the hot seat Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr
  15. this Gundam is a bit different to the other one I did as it has something called a core fighter which is a kind of jet that can fold up and then stores inside the torso ( I'm assuming this is some kind of escape craft ? ) the added bonus in this kit is that there is 2 of them ( one for the ground unit and one for the space version ) they are very similar and differences will be clear to see further on cockpit and nose sections first and there were some seams on the nose that I wanted to eliminate far too visible even for my low standards Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr filled, sanded and primed and if only it was as easy to do as it was to type ( took a few rounds of filling and sanding before they disappeared ) Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr there's a couple of teeny pilots and I did my best to paint them, but I'm no spring chicken and me old mincer's aren't what they used to be and even with the optivsor it was a struggle so they are a bit shonky but once in the driving seat you cant really tell Pg Gp01 core fighters work in progress by brundledonk, on Flickr
