    My entry: Scale 1/100 MG Unicorn 3 Phenex β€œ1/72 Demon”

    I will be using the 1/100 MG Unicorn Gundam HD Color + MS Cage I purchased from HLJ. (Shipping)

    GP 6
    • I assumy your planning to Add the seperatly available shield boosters, & repaint it all in a nice gold plate?

      • In a way yes πŸ™‚ and additional gimmicks and detailing

        • well obviously details. don’t know if you’ve built an RX-0 yet but be aware there very little room in him. most of the frame is solid to allow the tf’ing gimmik. stil looking for a way to elegently install an eye led (course the eyes are solid grey plastic so makes it even tricker)

          • Thanks for the heads up man πŸ™‚ Ill do everything I can to make it very elegant.

            • what part of the planet you in. if possible might be able to steer ya in a direction to get that nice shine.

              • Im currently located at Singapore and I am also not so sure if I can pull off the best shine for the gundam. Im just viewing here and there from youtube and some advice from some of my friends. But if you could give me some advice I really appreciate it πŸ™‚

                TO be honest just new in painting gunplay and still learning a lot and just keep pushing my luck to learn more anyway EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER.

                • okay first get yourself a .3micro gravity airbrush set up, then get alcladII silver and a good clear yellow like tamiya.

                  if you mist on about 6 layers of alclad, polish it then 2 coats tamiya clear yellow, you’ll match the paint. specially after sealing with future

    • Is a big project and you got less than 4 months, are you sure you can pull it off? If is me, I don’t think I can, lol. Anyway, good luck to you massive model… cheers. πŸ™‚

      • actually having build the unicorn, doing what he’s planning shouldn’t really take more then a month really, well, depends on what gimmiks he’s planning.

        but imho a month to do whats in those shots (which are the 144) should only take a month, so he’s fine on time

        • That is exactly what I meant here. Plan the time slot is important. If is a 144 scale, I guess is lot more easy to work with less than 4 months to work but if is a 100 scale, might be some problem and of course plan properly shouldn’t be a problem at all.

          @Johnnel, Hope to see some of your WIPs soon… cheers. πŸ˜€

          • @kuroneko ya time management is always key.

            for me i’ve yet to start my entry (backloged on kits) but i average 2 weeks for a 1/100 done up to match bandais photo examples

            • you are fast… πŸ˜€ One MG Unicorn took me 1 whole month to sand, prime and color… but of course I can do it in a week (16 hours per day), but don’t think so… as I don’t want to get fired by my boss for sleeping on my job… LOL!!!

              • Well I’ve knocked off MG grades in under a week avg, 4-5. granted I also built a PG wing in 13 hrs, so maybe I am, I’ve gotten to used to shaving my nubs that aside from a touch of sanding & maybe but of putty, prep don’t take long and I’ve sorta been using the same Primer for years

                • Do you mean you did all the step in that amount of time? I mean sand, prime, sand and removed all sunken mark, prime again, base coat, color, clear coat, decal, clear coat, panel lining, clear coat.

                  You must have a fast hands… Geez… you are very fast. πŸ™‚

                  • well my routine generally is dependent on the outcome. like the pg wing, not gotten around to finishing it, tend to putter on him at a nice slow relaxed pace inbetween pay kits.

                    but last serious MG i did for myself, went from box to full paint to bandai imgs standards in about a week.

                    personally, atm i just want to finish the current kit i’m on so i can start work on clients banshee which i have some interesting ideas for the finish

      • @kuroneko thank you πŸ™‚
