Awesome work on the Viggen camouflage B))

Thank you all. I had given myself 1 week for the paintjob, knowing that if I dropped the ball, I'd never touch that kit again.

Looking back, it was more tedious than working on a Mortar Headd garage kit.

I have collected a set of missiles for the Viggen from donor kits, now I need to scratch build some launch rails.

Ohm now with metallic highlights:

I let myself be inspired by various moths we have around here, which when you touch them leave behind a goldish-brown dust. Highlighted all the ridges and spikes with Tamiya copper and then toned it down with a thinned layer of Tamiya bronze. Depending on how much thinned down bronze was applied to the copper, more or less of the copper shines through (especially with my camera's flash).

Onto Nausicaa!

I love Sivil: so many things were never told but her face expressions or reactions would made it clear. 

I will be following your progress

What scale is that? 1/4?:o

im guessing as to her size, so my estimate says 160cm ish or 5.25 feet

model is 47cm tall with heels 45.5 without .....

so roughly scale 1/3,5 (you where close;))

Arbit and Salamander, great Nausicaa models! I really haven't followed much animation outside of Macross, but I loved that movie. Thanks for sharing!

Th only thing I really modded on the Nausicaa with Ohm kit:

IMG_8591.thumb.jpg.2170b2faff912499964ebf411ad27002.jpg

Filled the bottom part of Nausicaa's bag with plastic card and putty because otherwise it's possible to look into the bag from certain angles.

Testing a display base idea:

IMG_8589.thumb.jpg.7c2330ab9f439a7da75426b142fd913b.jpg

A bit large, as with Nausicaa herself mostly painted it would only take up half of the space available:

IMG_8594.thumb.jpg.c2114c7415b91f9b3ba3b3a870b5fc68.jpg

I really need to tone down the Ohmu blood on her dress and hands...

Can you take a picture of the Ohm without flash? I'm curious how the colors look in daylight.

I'm back to the LED Mirage, final primer cycle.

Nice. Those rough lines on the legs and shield, are they to give an organic biotech effect?

So... AT-AT round two! I've decided to give the new one a 2nd row seat so I can have 4 guys in the cockpit this time around utilizing the top of a certain SDF-1 Macross model part... hehehe. Yeh.. I know... no one will ever know or see that they are in there.. but hey, why not.

Here you go, in some sunlight on my balcony:

IMG_8603.thumb.jpg.d3c9ea9f3283c6b59870920c66585973.jpg

Nausicaa's dress is being toned down with some semi-gloss clear, and I got myself started on another Nausicaa kit:

IMG_8604.thumb.jpg.5c39554c7655ba5855e193bc55a1ee8a.jpg

The engine and lower half of the wings went together just fine even with paint (figured the engine detail could look like an old circuit board ^_^), but the upper half of the wings simply don't want to snap in place nicely, which explains the tape to hold it together as the glue dries. Besides the obvious seams there are some dimples that will need filling.

That reminds me of the cockpit setup in the Heavy Lifter of IMPS The Relentless chapter 2.

Going from faceless protagonist to Nausicaa:p:

IMG_8605.thumb.jpg.58fd973ff989c838f7e16e9c8993e9cd.jpg

And a better sized base:

IMG_8609.thumb.jpg.6f8b34de38affc675111efe10f3737f7.jpg

Gun on the right for composition's sake, even though it's shown on the left in the manga scene I will try to replicate.

Some time back I had picked up some Padico Artista Formo water-based stone clay from a HLJ sale, which I will use to build up the base. It's easy to work with using hands and a small dish of water (to smoothe out edges). Then it's time for the cling-film trick:

IMG_8610.thumb.jpg.eed3df62022682aa46c18c1504e65e58.jpg

Apply cling-film to (moisterized) clay, press items you want to mount on top of clay into clay. This will leave the imprints in the wet clay, while keeping your items clean. Remove cling-film afterwards:

IMG_8611.thumb.jpg.c540ba1bcb6ad51a07092d1fd915c8c5.jpg

Then it's simply a matter of letting the clay dry for some time.

Wow, great eyes on Nausicaa! I have the 1/20 kit with Kai. Got pretty well along on him, but was discouraged by the face on the figure. Are those decals you're using?

That was the one thing I modded on my Kai kit, I sanded away the chin guard on Nausicaa to get a fuller look. Other than dropping her on her head while clear coating :( she came out okay.

Yeah, the ones from the kit. There's no way I'm going to paint anime eyes on a 1/20 scale figure (1/12 scale is the smallest I've gone for fully detailed eyes). The faces of the figures are possibly the worst thing of these kits, they make Nausicaa look about twice to thrice as old as she is supposed to be (although her bossom on this kit is also not that of a young girl:huh:).

Ah, I have the old kit, not the Bandai re-release. I don't think it came with decals. At least I don't remember them.

But her face looks a little too chunky with the headgear on. Her face with the baby Ohmu looks much more the right shape.

I painted the 1/12 scale Misa figure for my daughter and Misa looked more like Little Orphan Annie eyes wise! I lost the decal sheet somehow. - MT
