1/60 Perfect Grade 00 Raiser
Submitted By: Matt Mrozek
A little something I finished last week. I got this done fairly quick, in about 3 weeks. I wanted to get it done before I started my new job so I worked non stop for 2 weeks and then finished it up at night last week finishing Thursday night just in time for a local model competition, I took 2nd place. And now that I have a full time job my modeling will slow way down.
The kit is very nice and has great articulation. (I have to give credit to HowardKhor from ZeroG forum for the pose.) With over 900 parts it took a long time just to pre-build this monster. I did combined the 00 and the Raiser during the pre-building but now with paint I do not want to scuff or scratch the paint that I spent 30 plus hours spraying.
My shading is a little heavier than I usually do and this was done on purpose. To get the heavier shading I did not take my top color as close the edges as normal and I did less blending. The results are nice I think and give a slightly worn look. Again my panel lines are not up to par so I need to continue working on those.
The GN Drives are very cool and even have a self timer so they won’t run your batteries down. A major down side is the LED in the head. You have to take the head apart to get to the switch, but other than that no complaints.
Over all I am very happy with the final kit.
Colors used are as follows:
Pre-Shade white parts: Mr. Color Gray Black
Pre-Shade blue and red parts: Mr. Color Black
White Armor: Mr Color White
Blue Armor: Mr. Color Cobalt blue (same blue that’s on my Strike and Exia commission)
Red Armor: Mr . Color GX Red (The GX paints rock. They spray and cover better than normal Mr. Color and the finish is smooth as glass)
Yellow parts: Mr. Color Yellow then post-shaded with Alclad Clear Yellow
