As you guys noe.. or dunno.. RX-78-2 Ver.OYW's LEGS uses the OLD Ver.1.5 RX-78-2's legs.. so the WHOLE leg is molded together.. with the hydraulic pumps locked to each other.. unlike the newer models now.. i.e Force Impluse.. where the rods and pump is molded seperately, making it easier to paint. So.. it has always been a problem to me.. as a new modeller painter.. on how to paint the pump without scraping the paint when its close...
My solution came to me frm Japan.. literally. hahah.. and tt's Kawaguchi Sensei.. =DD i consulted him abt the problem and he told me to thin down the rods so as when you paint.. the new layers of paint would not be scratched when you closed it.. so i followed his advice..
Painted half the pumps alr.. its molded together so i cant separate it.. i placed some blu tack behind to keep the rods frm sliding.
As you can see.. i used Gundam markers as its easier for my first try. Wanted to get the Metallic Silver Chrome Gundam marker, but apparently its sold out in my country since last year. =( so i could onli settle for a lesser silver. better den nth for me. ^^.
Closer look.. a painted and a primed.
After finishing the pump.. i looked for some details that i can paint.. ^^. near the upper things and the foot thrusters.. very happy with the results!
This is how it looks like after i assemble it on to the main body.. maybe i'll do some dry brushing after that.. some silvering on the internal frame.. woooo..
That's all i've done! would be starting to spray paint the armor and such.. its gonna be a slow process... so pls wait patiently for my next post! haha... hope you like wad you see... any questions or comments pls let me noe k!
