Title: HGUC AMX-102 ZSSA (Unicorn Ver) Take 2
Post by: thegunny on November 15, 2016, 09:17:45 PM
I made this earlier in the year as an unjudged entry into the HGUC build. I'm not a big fan of plain jane paint jobs or shiny clean finishes so I've slapped some decals, flat coat and bit of edge highlighting on for another trip around the block. Unfortunately the flat coat went a bit funny in a few places, especially on the dark green but if if look quickly you won't notice it  :P

Gave one of those new Koto LED beam sabers for a bit of bling  ::)

Looks good, now add some weathering to that thing.
Like the saber too, where did that come from?

Yeah, maybe  ???

It may be a way around the funny finish on the dark green. Take 3 here I come  ::) ::)

It's a Kotobukiya LED Sword. They make them in Red, Green and Blue.

Great work Gunny.

What do you mean by edge highlighting? I had a good squint at your images and can't spot it.

I used Tamiya green & grey from the make up sets to lightly brush over the edges. It's not supposed to stand out. It is visible in the flesh and also on the original hi-res pics.
