    That looks great! How did you do the honeycomb pattern? 

    The top parts and arms were masked and painted. Tried to do the same for gunpod and legs but was unsuccessful. So after many attempts had to re-design them and print them as water slide decals. Tried to match the colors as best as I could and turned out with kind of a decent decal.



  2. Hi guys! For those of you that don't use FB, here goes some pics of the kit I recently finished. The decals set is the original that Hasegawa released back in the day. The battroid kit also was bought many years ago and unfortunately give some probles with the decals that were used due to its age, I suppose. Anyway, happy with the results. Hope you like it.

    Red is a difficult color to weather, how did you achieve the look?

    Thank you! Sorry for the late response. In fact I gave it quite a thoght. First gray primer wich will gave me a nice base to darken the red. Then pre-shading on panel lines with white to work as the faded color. Then a dark red all around. Chipping with a light pink. Seal it with gloss varnish, then panel lined with dark brown. Faded paint with yellow oil paint on top surfaces and some panels. Some other with light gray. Then streaks and etc. :)


    Thank you all for your replies!

    Looks great! The gear up looks good. It's hard to get that just right.

    Your decal situation scares me. I have lots of kits sitting around waiting to be built. I'm wondering if I'll have problems like that too.

    About the decals, I had this kit on the stash for like 10-11 years... And they were on the box beneath the instructions, maybe much of dry place? Luckily was the last with that age, now have 5 years aged or newer ;P





  5. Hi guys! Here's another from the stash! As with my previous model (SV-51) this one have been sitting on the stash for too many years. The build was straight forward after building many vf-1, but the decals were another story. I believe that for being so much time on the box, when I started decaling there were many that literally disintegrated on the water. Lucky me, had many leftovers of previus valks. After all frustration, I believe it came up pretty decent. Now it's time to move to the vf-11 or 25. We'll see.











  6. Hi guys! Here are my lates models, SV-51 Nora scheme and the Bandai 1/72 Regult Battle Pod

    I bought the Sv-51 on it's first release and was stored since. Nice and really big model to build. The decals were no easy to work, maybe becouse of it's age (12 years now!).

    Well, hope you like them guys!


  7. Hi! It's been looong since I post a model, so here goes the latest, wich box has been sitting for years 'til I finally get it. Even when I've build lots of Hase VF-1s, for some reason this one didn't wanted to get finished, with lots of fingerprints of glue over the paint, wich needed to be sanded and repainted, decals that appeared where not originally placed, etc. Anyway, fun to build.
