So this is about my 1/100 overflag again, managed to finished the paint job for the body n wing binders. I haven’t decided what to do with the default flight backpack. It is still untouched on the runner ^_^.
Basically, I just painted the original color scheme, plus several areas with plaplate details. All using tamiya spray:
-the white parts I just sprayed topcoat directly ^^
-inner ‘face’ and blades using gaia star bright duralumin (thx to vixion for telling me brush painting method), but I don’t know what’s wrong it seems that it’s not supposed to be like that, my brushing sucks
For the last layer, I sprayed flat topcoat, which turned to be a problem, frost eveywhere, but not very visible on the photos ^_^.
So what have I done with this 1/100 overflag?
First concept, the one winged flag
One winged has problem with unbalanced COG, decided to make it symmetrical
wings can open and close just like vardant
Prototype palm SB to hold the twin blades, this is the second most challenging mod aside from the wing binders.
First attempt failed and had to find another method to attach the palm to the arm
Wing binders and palms settled, time to move to the plaplate details
Test fit. Yosh! looking good ^^
Add holes (use pinvise)
details on the calf
found a way to make the feet able to change from normal to high heels
And then all the masking, painting, and topcoat….don’t want to remember >.<
from january till sept 2009, guess that makes me a super slow builder ^_^
