I shall start on my MG Char’s Zaku version 2.0 today~ wooot
My first Mono-eyed mobile suit W.I.P!
First day of construction(23/11/09)
Today, as always, I started on his head and body. LOL, I’ll try and start from the weapons the next time I build something else kekeke
The head's inner frame
The head's armour pieces
The head is now complete! *plays darth vader theme*
The energy cables on the side of his head were such a pain to put together at first, but after the first one, it got easier along the way. xD
Here's the basic frame pieces of the body
Look at char, just sitting there, waiting to kick some RX78's ass xD
The lower part of the main body's frame
That's the "Minovsky type ultracompact fusion reactor"
Now for the energy cables
Here are the parts for the Jetpack/Backpack
Now for the final armour pieces
One step closer to completion~
"Gimme arms or I'll rip yours off and have them as mine!" o.O
Meh, made a few mistakes here and there. I didn’t place the eye sticker properly so you can see air bubbles here and there. And you can see I kind of chipped a small bit on his head @_@ My noob-ness knows no boundaries LOL Well then, that’s it for now.
Day 2 of construction(24/11/09)
Today I started on the arms. Very..tiring @_@ well maybe it’s cause I just came back from school and immediately started on building the arms LOL xD
Parts for the arm's inner frame
The arm's inner frame~ without the armour on
Each finger is individually jointed midway to allow more articulation except for the thumb and yes, those nub marks are a bloody pain to clean up since each finger is so small @_@
Since it's jointed midway, the fingers can do this! =D
Here are the armour pieces for the arm
And here's how the arms look like fully armoured and panel lined
Char's Zaku: "I have arms!"
No comment lol
And here's Zaku's more..erm..feminine side LOL xD
So far so good. Loving the individual fingers xD And also the shoulder armours are awesome. Tomorrow I shall start on the legs? heheh see ya then
Day 3 of construction(25/11/09)
Legs,legs and more legs!! o.o well, I did the legs today and it took me FOREVER!! I came back from school and finished around 5 hours later? Crazy! I guess I just took my time xD
The parts for the inner frame of the waist
The armour parts for the waist
Here's the parts for the foot's inner frame
Parts for the leg's inner frame
The inner skeleton leg compared next to the armoured one
The armour parts for the legs. The energy cables are on a spring~ weeee
Completed 2 legs!*sorry for the blurry picture, focused wrongly xD*
Zaku completed! Only weapons left~
I love how Zakus can do a natural looking kneeling pose hahaha
That’s all for today. Join me soon for the final W.I.P for Char’s Zaku, which is for his weapons! And finally his review! wooot~
Day 4 of construction(26/11/09)
Weapons! and more weapons! I finished off his weapons today and I’m loving how he looks like fully armed.
The parts for the zaku machine gun
This is why I love master grades. The attention to detail is insane! Even the gun's magazine has bullets stored inside it
Completed machine gun. Added some weathering using dry brush method and silver chrome paint
A closer look at the weathering effect. It's also my first time doing weathering so any tips would be helpful 🙂
The parts for the bazooka
And voila, all weapons finished and weathered. I think I overdid the weathering for the bazooka though >.>
I didn't have any purple and yellow paint lying around to paint the heathawk so I just weathered it. I don't think it came out fine ahhahaha. What do you guys think? xD
Zaku poses with his machine gun
"Get on the floor, now!" Oh, I forgot to mention that the clear pieces for the scope of the gun and bazooka were being painted.
And here's how it looks like with the scope painted!
And this looks like the bazooka's scope has seen better days. I guess the whole bazooka is battered up with all the weathering and the busted scope paint job
This is his last shot before I review him
There you have it. My noob first time weathering turned out..alright I guess? Could’ve done better but that’s why they say “practice makes perfect” right? I’ll see you guys next time for his review, until then, Take care 😉
