RG amazing red warrior
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:19:35 AM »

Just want to share my latest project. I haven't seen anyone do this yet so might as well try it myself.

I'm just converting the rg rx78 into the amazing red warrior. Without modding the rg kit as much as possible.

I'm done working on the arms shoulders and backpack. Currently working on the head, chest, knees and feet. I'm using the original ARW feet since I dont want to destroy the rg feet. I'm still looking at ways how to put a polycap inside the feet since gluing the polycap to the plastic part is as good as imposible.

Done with the feet parts. What I did was carve out the feet area to fit in the ankle of the RG kit, When I finally got the clearance I'm satisfied with, I took a polycap that fits into the ankle peg and glued it inside the feet using CA glue and some baby powder.

1st I placed the polycap inside the feet then filled the surrounding areas with baby powder, then I applied CA glue to the baby powder, being careful not to put glue inside the polycap. the powder absorbs the glue and helps it become more manageable. the powder also helps the glue dry faster.

Here's a small update with this project. Converting the needed hg pieces are already done. But the original red warrior parts look a bit plain compared to the detailing of the rg so I'll have to add some detailing to make it look authentic. Maybe a fey pla-plating here and there and some scribing will do.

Also, the LEDs I ordered finally arrived a few days ago so I was able to light the head just recently.

painting took long enough but I'm really close to finishing this project. I'm currently using a DIY air pump setup so I'm really satisfied with the results though it's not without imperfections. tried doing 2 shades of red though I may have put it a bit too dark.

the white and yellow parts are bare plastic.

waiting for the RG rx-78-2 waterslide decals to put here.

Decaling the custom rg amazing red warrior.
The decals really add to the kit, it's just that the decal still has that excess border around that pops out. Top coating would fix that but i might risk ruining the kit and i'm already satisfied with the paints' finish and topcoating might change the finish.
