I’m sure the question you’re asking is “Why Sazabi? Didn’t you already do one?” Well the answer is that a friend asked me to build one for him, because he really liked how I did mine. And because he asked nicely, I’m doing a Sazabi for him, and I’m also doing it a little different to how I did mine. Starting with the yellow plastic pieces, they’re going to be gold, so that means a nice gloss black undercoat before the Alclad gold paint. And more gloss black for the chrome pieces. The Alclad chrome looks lovely. You’ve got to spray it on really gently though or it doesn’t shine up. That makes it tricky to get right, so I took it really carefully, and have had to add more chrome to many of the pieces as I was way too cautious! For the main frame pieces, I masked off the bits I wanted chrome, and sprayed the rest with Tamiya smoke. This makes for a lovely metallic effect, with nice chrome highlights. And of course, lots more smoke hand-painted for the details. This really brings out the depth on the chromed pieces and gold details.
