1/100 オーバーフラッグ OverFlag WIP 1 – [Body]
June 7, 2010Posted by on
Not sure if I mentioned this before but I was never fully satisfied with my 1/100 OverFlag. It was good, but I wasn’t able to make it into what I had envisioned.
Now that I have gotten better and also got more tools at hand, I have decided to completely redo my OverFlag, modding it into my own custom version. ^ ^
So 1st, I separated him into individual components. As usual of me, I started off with the body component.
I really had no plan, I just did what I felt like. 1st I took off that white part and began sanding like hell.
After sanding those 2 parts, I added some putty to make the top part protrude out more. I also beefed up the underside a bit.
I also made the 20mm machine gun to protrude out.
…but only to have it break off because of the little surface area. >.<
So I simply revamped the 20mm machine gun as a whole. What do you think?
I also scribed some custom panel-lines on. It’s not perfectly symmetric but it looks alright if you don’t think about it. ^ ^;
The main body armor is finished modding so I primed it then I sanded down the prime. It gives it a pretty cool weathered affect but that’s not what I am looking for. I gave it another priming later.
Right now, I am working on the chest fins as well as the head. Looking pretty good so far. This will be a very long on-going project, I don’t expect it to be done until Christmas. ^ ^;;;
