Master Grade Crossbone Gundam Fullcloth
« on: September 27, 2010, 08:37:17 PM »

Crossbone gundam
i have long history with this kit

its back to 3 years ago
when i was choose my first kit to be painted
it was down to whether Crossbone Full Cloth or HG Epyon 1/100
my teacher said, crossbone will be too easy because its MG
so i choose Epyon which has about 16 seam line

and then, about 4-5 month ago
i asked the owner of gundam shop in Perth (Tokyo Underground in hay street) to choose for me which gundam she want me to paint
and she choose MG Crossbone (i was hoping for HG kit actually, but meh)

after that, i try to understand more about crossbone by read the Manga
IT'S SO GOOD!!! Especially the artist, itís the same artist who draw TOBE ISAMI , which is one of my favorite manga,I also love the action scene, too bad the scanlation stop their job in the middle of ďStell SevenĒ Arc

Back to the kit
Crossbone come with enormous amount of weapon
It come with 2 dagger, 2 whip, 2 scissors, beam zanber, peacock smasher etc etc
So itís kind of annoying to erase all of that seamline
But it still good kit
If I say the bad things about the kit , the shoulder frame is very2 annoying cause for some reason , Bandai made it with moveable part so it keep moving when Iím attach the FULLCLOTH Cloak
But oh well
Okay, enjoy the pics

DAMN! That's so neat Vandalier. Very beautiful build mate. That's just a pleasure to look at. The cloak and the weapons are particularly well done. Your paint work is crisp, clear, and the colours are spot on. I love it.

10/10. Can't fault it.

very nice and clean work! have you thought about going over it with another topcoat? some of the decals stick out, esp on the black.

actually it's very hard to make the decal 100% become one with the surface
esp i was used almost 100 piece of decal

so no, i think adding another topcoat will not bring more diff

generally i've seen them work out nicer with a thicker topcoat, the difference in finish is giving it away on the purple/black. thicker the coat the less discernable it is.

Don't be hesitant Shifty. Vandalier has a lot of experience building Gunpla.

BTW using the spoiler tags is a great way of maintaining page loading speed and continuity. Great!
