GP01 Gundam “Zephyranthes” Full Burner WIP 6

Finished painting everything (skipped the inner frame because that’s just a waist of paint).. Still has to apply the decals and do the panel lines.

Had tons of mistakes on this guy, good thing I kept my cool and calmly tried to fix them all up. Now isn’t that noticeable unless you really look for them.

Still have to paint the insides of the verniers red, initial plan was them to be in gold but unfortunately I ran out of it..

Am too cheap to buy a new can just for the verniers. (Yes, I’ll be doing some masking for the shoulder armors and white part thingy).

Not really liking the decals/clear stickers that came with this kit (too big for my taste), will use the leftovers from the Zaku II and Mk-II..

P.S. Next update would be the full review alongside the photodump, would be done by the 2nd week of March at the earliest.

    im liking the grey on him, nice job. his dry transfer sheet is so plain, but the stickers look okay. though sometimes they dont look very good when applied, do you cut the edges from the stickers so they blend better?

    will be interesting to see how you mix it up with the Zaku II and Mk II decals.

      Yes they don’t look good most of the time.. But when applied right and topcoated they almost look seamlines with the paintjob.

      Though that rarely happens to me, might try some water transfer decals on the next gunpla..

    also, what would you recommend for detail up parts that aren’t already metal lathe stuff.

    i’ve seen kotobukiya [by the way is that the only company that makes the verniers/nozzles?] hah!

      Not really a fan of those blings so I haven’t done any research on what they are.

      That’s the only company that I know that sells aftermarket parts for plamos..
