More camera tinkering and background sampling. :)

I hate you @Lolicon for making your Valkyries look beautiful and painting those landing gears white. :aggressive:

 

:wub:

Beautiful!  Did you take it apart to paint the landing gears or did you paint them in place?

I just masked and painted them in place. The entire gear bay needs to be painted anyway, at least in the legs.

Hey Lolicon. Is it airbrushed or handbrushed?

Thanks! ;)

I used white primer, then sprayed white over it. I've no experience with metal parts, but white paint tends to be on the thin and watery side, so I used primer to help cover and stick better.

Thanks! Still need to experiment with the photo booth a bit.

Finally got a decent shot of my TV Roy Hikaru. :)

This does not look like a toy anymore. I almost thought I am seeing a model. Impressive.

Amazing what a difference it makes!  Great job!!!  Damn you, now it seems like something I should do too.  Just remember add the silver to the shock struts.

Always making more work for me! Not that I mind any tips that help improve the final product. :lol:

All the landing gear bay doors can be completely removed, which makes masking and painting much easier. Even the one at the very front, but it's in super tight. I had to wrap the door in several layers of masking tape, then use a pair of pliers to yank the door out.

That looks so nice. I wish they'd produce the armor in 1/60 scale.

Awesome!  Can’t wait to get some of those armors to make the HMR VF-1 even more cool looking.  I didn’t know you had 2 Monsters so if one of them is new, congrats!

I got chance to handle/photograph the prototypes of the 1/60 version, they were really nice.  Maybe one day they will get a chance to release them. :(

Damn @Lolicon, you're making it very hard to look at my out-of-box Vakyries and remain satisfied. :lol:

Just where did you get that mat from? I think you and Saburo is starting a trend here.
