I entered this build in the HLJ Playing with Plamo competition, so now that that’s over, I’m blogging my build.Starting with the box, it’s a decent sized MG kit. I’ve not had much luck with transforming kits, so I took this as a challenge. I wanted to go with a gradient on the colour scheme, with the centre of the kit orange, the majority red, and then fading through purple to blue. I did a test on this egg tray to see how it would go. I put down a base of Createx pearl red, and then overlaid Tamiya clear yellow, red and blue accordingly.And here are the pieces that are going to get the treatment. I used the Alclad white undercoat to ensure the pieces came out nice and bright. And I chromed up sections of the inner frame. The white sections got masked, so that I could paint them half white, half grey. All these sections got modded. I added plasticard on the back of the shield. The gun had masked pieces for that I carried through the paint scheme from the main body of the mech. I added a touch of chrome on the edges to help bring out the overlaid clear Tamiya colours. Now you can see how the shading colours are starting to appear. Now with the completed side skirt sections, all shaded and detailed up. The shading with the tail section is working well.
