all snapped together (shoulder rest was left in Mr Surfacer grey too )

the magazines was painted in exactly the same way but I didn't like how it looked. in this pic it's just one half dry fitted as I hadn't painted the ammo that goes inside it yet

42229478025_a880469ae0_b.jpg

I painted the ammo next whilst I had a think about what to do with the magazine. alclad gold and aluminium over Mt Surfacer , the tips were then over painted with clear red

back to the magazine. I painted out the light wash with gloss black then lightly sprayed alcald jet exhaust to give a metal Sheen but also a slightly different tone to the frame.

you can just make out the difference in tone in this pic

I mentioned at the very beginning of this build that I wasn't going to weather this to death but did want to add some signs of use and I'm trying my best to stick to that. so many of my builds are weathered/heavily weathered that for me it will make a nice change to have something in my cabinet that is a bit more subtle, so I just light sanded the edges back to primer and used a small amount of silver to add some scratches. I can allways add more if I want but it's much harder to take it away

trying my best to keep it reigned in and also keeping in mind the scale of the Gundam

42254922765_44e3bff75e_b.jpg

 

when I fitted the magazine into the Bazooka it looked wrong against the clean finish so I added some scratches to that as well

42440843214_769d08fa11_b.jpg

it looks a bit harsh that close up in the above pic but further away it's a bit more subtle and in hand you have to look closley to see it

I nearly forgot, there is a lid for the magazine you can put on if it's not attached to the gun and that was painted also

43109389872_ebed9749a3_b.jpg

41348637400_a129ae30d2_b.jpg

and if not in the gun the magazine can store on the waist armour (hooks onto the little grey peg) but you only get one Bazooka magazine so it's all or nothing I'm afraid

Love the job you did on the ammunition; to be honest the whole gun looks cracking

next on the list is the Vulcan pod, think of it as a giant pair of headphones with a machine gun built into them. I believe that some Gundam suits have the cannons built into the the head but the mark II doesn't have them hence the lead spitting Beats by Dre

 

gloss black base coat then highlights in the centre done by adding white to the airbrush cup

not as smooth as finish as I'm capable of but it was mega hot when I did this and even though it's cooler underground in the Petecave  the temperature was less than ideal for spraying lacquers so it was drying in the air. it matters not as I will be flat coating but wanted to point out why it's a bit dog rough lol

a bit of masking as I'm going to spray these bits white

42359266965_790141b1b4_b.jpg

 

and this bit red (it will all make a bit more sense in a minute)

all the bits painted and de-masked

I sprayed the business end in Mr Surfacer to hopefully give some continuity to the other weapon I used it on

42359271385_fd3af1a715_b.jpg

 

decals on, flat coated and all snapped together

A good end result despite the enamel woes. 

And the weapons are looking good too.

Your pictures are very clear too. better than mine.

Me, I'll stick with this laptop. No idea what all these F buttons are for though.

Oh, and control which to do what? Not a clue.

I bought this Chromebook when Flickr stopped supporting the version of Android my camera uses (samsung GC-100 and it may be obsolete but it takes ok pics and I know how to use it lol) as I didn't want a Windows machine and it seemed a cheap way to get my pics uploaded to Flickr it does what it says on the tin but even though I can find my way around ios , Android and even to some degree Windows, I find the Chrome OS a bit counter intuitive to use. It's not bad just different but I'm sure if I keep using it I will get better (i surely can't get worse lol )

and here it is on the Gundam, not snapped completely in place as I don't want to chip the paint on the head as I won't be displaying it with the Vulcan pod

thats the build bang up to date, all that's left is the shield, beam rifle and 2 figures. these are all primed and ready to paint but while the weather is good I don't kn ow how much bench time I will find, it's not so much that I'm a lover of this hot weather it's just that since we moved here it seems to have rained for pretty much all the time and I swear the kids have developed gills and webbed feet over the last 8 years lol. we moved away from the concrete Urban jungle tohave a life with less stress and  be closer to nature so while the weather is like it is we are going to do our best to get out and explore the natural beauty of the countryside and we are only half an hour away from some lovely coastlines and even though I have visited them all numerous times they are even more eye-catching with the sun out

 

thank you for the interest in this build and the kind comments I'll be back with an update soon

I'm back a bit sooner than I anticipated, circumstances changed and left me at a bit of a loose end so I decided I would use the time to get a bit more done at the bench.

 

not much left to choose to work on now and all is in primer, it's a nice feeling seeing the pile of parts get smaller

41529022640_b537af45c4_b.jpg

 

 

It was a toss up between the shield and the  beam rifle, I went with the beam rifle as the shield has a lot of complicated painting on the inner face and I didn't fancy tackling it today.

I'm going to try and make the paint scheme match the bazooka so out with some white paint and some masking to keep a bit of the primer grey on show (beam sabres handles were painted white at the same time)

seem to be having a problem getting the pics to show. I'm not sure if it's me or Flickr but only the first pic worked anything else is posting as a link and not an image so I'll leave it at while and see if it sorts itself out

 

I think it was a glitch at Flickr's end as all seems to be working fine this morning.

 

a band of orange was sprayed over the barrel in an attempt to link it visually with the other weapon

42434429605_f0d47fb499_b.jpg

 

with the tape off and I wasn't happy with their result. It's clean and no bleed but I don't like the grey either side of the orange stripe (it was white on the bazooka)

Lookin seriously nice dude, cracking job on the bazooka, some really nice weathering

thanks mate, I was really worried I would end up over doing it as I'm not used to working in a small scale. I usually do 1\32 and up so i  thought my chipping would end up out of scale but it doesn't look too bad in hand

back out with the masking tape so I could add some white and move the grey to the base of the barrel

42434431335_27ccec4ab8_b.jpg

 

while I had the tape out I masked the stock so I could spray the grip gloss black and a light coat of steel

with the tape off and some dark wash added to the stock to bring out the details 

42434431915_82225007b9_b.jpg

 

and the other side

42621153044_b3b4253864_b.jpg

magazines painted in jet exhaust to give a bit of difference in tone to the body of the rifle 

42434433185_51f8d0e131_b.jpg

 

then the same as the Bazooka magazine I sanded the edges back to primer

 42434433955_6b0166d7da_b.jpg

 

a bit of modelair silver added here and there, decals and a very light flat coat

unlike the Bazooka you get 3 magazines for the rifle, these 2 will store on the back of the shield

42434434265_e9eb6a1670_b.jpg

 

and 1 to keep on  the rifle.

I added some scratches and chipping to the dark areas with silver but haven't done anything to the White areas yet as I will do this when I go back and add some to the White armour on the Gundam
