Before anything else, I would like to say thank you to the Four Horsemen and GAF for creating the Sinanju Group build (that was GAF 1.0 I think. I was a lurker back then). The results are just so awesome that it compelled me to build and paint a Sinanju.
As some of you may know, this is my third work so far. TBH I think I could have done better if I wasn't so lazy, because right now, it looks dull to me. I worked on this thing for about 6 months on and off because 4th year highschool isn't really that easy, and I may still work on this if inspiration strikes me (most likely painting the thrusters on the inside red).
If anyone's curious, here's what I used:
Lotus Red/Silver for detailing, Black for trims
RJ London Dark Grey (because I tried looking for Bosny Dark Grey everywhere but everyone ran out of it.)
MG Wing Ver. Ka
For masking (head vulcans in particular): Blutack.
The "maybe I can use this as an avatar" shot.
Yes that is a seamline. I couldn't figure out how to remove it so I had to unfortunately ignore it.
Here be spoilers.
The suit itself.
Tried pulling off a Gai-Gun looking rifle but I guess I failed. Oh well.
Details on the rifle can't really be seen clearly on pics but it looks ok in person.
First time doing reverse wash, massive amounts of gloss paint, and more-than-usual detailing.
Building this thing and making it look even half decent will be a really steep learning curve. The decals are sure to be hours of fun (or dread). Dealing with the trims requires the familiarity of what LEA is, and how to use that knowledge to your advantage. To be honest I thought I would have a really hard time with the trims but turns out that it's easier than expected.
P.S. The shield isn't done yet because I ran out of paint.
