Oh man gutted! Hope they turn up mate 

Cheers, digging around most of the weekend and have found the missing let part so only missing the inner chest part. I might have to have a go at making a new one.

Oh cool glad the leg bit showed up, at least if you have to make a part now it's an original bit rather than having to match an existing bit

So a few months ago I posted on gundam model center FB page that I was missing an inner frame chest part to my 1/60 Astray Red Frame from Nillson Works. Well today out of the blue the part I needed turned up in the post 

 

Unbelievable! 

 

Time to show this build some more attention.

 

Cleared the bench, 

Everything else is on now on hold! 

 

And you can see the disgarded dragon in the picture.....

Started/ restarting with the weapons and doing a bit of seam line welding on the gun.

Wow your lucky day!! Nice glad to see this underway again

To say I'm very pleased is a massive understatement. 

 

And so I have prepared a few parts for painting today, I have the sheild gun swords ready. I have primed them today and wet sanded down a bit, done a sort of apex prime and I will be painting in a gradient on the gray parts but on the white I will be pre shading with ( as a experiment) mahogany. I'm thinking the warm red brown might be better than black or grey.  Also mixed up a Bach of blue/grey as my main colour for inner frame and weapons. The last picture is a test, brush on over the grey primer. 

 

Anyone used mahogany as a pre shade before, I would be interested to here how it went.

And we have some completed weapons and sheild. A ref of a 6" ruler to show the size of these.... 

 

Hopefully the contrast shading and pre/post shading is comming across. 

 

The the sheild needs a few decals and the odd bit of pannel lining still to do and I think I will make a start on the arms next.

So I didn't start on the arms next but the legs, feet and backpack and I have also added the declas to the gun and shield. Not really much to show for today work but I did decide to remove the paint and flat coat I had added to the inner frame parts, I was never overly happy with them and as I was looking through the cupboards I found this stuff ( blue magic) no idea where its from but it is brilliant at removing acrylic and wax paints from plastic.

Mixed bag painted today, backpack still need to add thrusters, lower parts of feet, upper internal thigh parts painted in my bluegrey as we're the interior foot parts that will be visible. All the legs white parts painted in a pale grey pade that is just about impossible to photograph but you can see it on the ankle part the best and I have put the lower outer part from the legs together to see how the red preshaded parts look next to the grey fade and I'm happy.

Pannel lined and put the decals on the parts, used 2 decals from the 1/35 Astray bust to add that custom look to the leg parts. Need to cut the one going across the knee joint once it fully dry.

Parts check of what of have done so far and then they go into a box to make room for the next batch of parts for the leg and then on to the arms.

Wow those parts together look cool, very nice painting

Cheers and after a monster session in the man cave today I have the legs together. Still the odd bit of pannel lining to do and an odd decal I have added to gloss in, the flat coat I will do when the weather is a bit less humid, I have never had a problem before but not risking it on this kit.

Slow going but I didn't appreciate how much paint and painting this would take. 

I now have the waist inner frame and white parts finished and now I can attach the swords. Just the red parts to paint on the arms and shoulders next and then on to the head before attacking the main body.
