Arcadia 1/60 Perfect Transformation VF-0D for 2015

Recommended Posts

*snip*

So this is about to happen.

I'll start with a heavy coat of the dark dirt wash to try and get some panel line detail and

then go with they white in search of a slightly more representative overall lighter blue finish.

Wish me luck............please?!

Good luck! If it turns out great then I'm following right behind you!

Good luck to both of you!

Can't remember who said it way back (derex maybe) but the panel lines on this thing are so shallow!

I have a feeling this could get very annoying.

I've done the dark dirt coat. I'll start washing off the excess later. Pictures will follow.

the black wash have to be sealed in so that the light wash wont remove the black wash underneath.

I'd like for the black to stain the white in and around the panel lines so the finish isn't uniform.

Who knows, I may have to wipe it all off and start over.

Just applied directly.

Having a lot of trouble with the light wash.

The plastic is so frikkin shiny it just rubs right off.

Have tried a few coats of it now and it's getting a bit frustrating.

Things not going as I'd hoped really.

I think I need an airbrush.

The light wash is very susceptible to bubbles.

Also as I mentioned earlier, the plastic is so shiny.

It just won't take. My dreams of making it lighter may

not be realised.

The wings take the wash quite well but not the fuselage.

Particularly the chest plate.

Think I'll have to start over tomorrow.

Sorry they're upside down

^Well respect to you for taking this on as a project, I would say try not to get too discouraged but I'm not putting in the effort you are.

Hopefully a Member with similar experience can share some feedback that will help.

Which parts do get weathered, then?

As someone that's worked on fighter jets, not every part of the air frame gets weathered.

I know that but what I'm after is a more anime accurate shade of blue. That may not be possible without a full respray (with paint not wash) however.

Sorry to hear about your troubles Moosey,

Did you see my thread on weathering my VF-0D?

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=35120&page=93#entry1203668

If you look at my signature below, and go to the archived links thread, scroll down to the toys and you can find a few other links to my experience in weathering the VF-0D - I didn't have to re-paint the entire thing, but I did use an airbrush to do the salt weathering techniques to lighten the overall blue.

Good luck.

Thanks WM, you've done a spectacular job there alright. That's pretty much what I want to do alright.

Looks like an airbrush will be required alright.

Speaking of salt weathering, I've experimented a little with that this afternoon...

I'll post some pictures later (don't hold your breath though, it not that great!)

I've decided I'm done (for now).

I will revisit it down the line if and when I can get my hands on an airbrush.

I tried the sea salt earlier on and it worked quite well except when I tried to wipe off the excess, it all came off!! 😣

Anyway, this will have to do for now.

Old Thread Revival! 

I got my hands on the VF-0D again from a fellow board member and it feels so good to have it in my hands again!

Nice score with the 0D!

So they were able to calculate to the minute when they would return to Earth 12000 years later and plan a welcome light show, but couldn't get the kana lined up right? :lol:

12000 years in the future, mathematics will be a fine art.  

Japanese will be an extinct language.

I hope that Arcadia releases the Grey Variant someday. Even if it were to be released an an ultra limited item I am sure many would buy in.

Arcadia where o where are you?

*RUBS EYES*

1) is the color changed or is it a camera white balance illusion?

2) Weathered??

3) rounding up....40k! :vava:

Man if its true the color changed and is weathered,...tough call...i already gave up when i saw the price, but then 1) and 2) questions came in....

that might sway me if true....

Stupid expensive. Gotta sell some organs for that 0D PF. Bandai has all my business now. 

Also would be annoying if hips still not fixed. Assume they would have the 0S hip fix. You never know though. :p

Looks mighty nice, but that price, and the fact that I already have the original and do not own any PF versions of anything in my collection, means this is thankfully an easy pass for me... more money for Sentinel's MOSPEADA offerings.
