HG00 Brave Standard Type - Sexy Royal Purple
« on: September 15, 2017, 02:02:02 AM »

Hey everyone,

I built the blue commander type brave about 8 years ago and it was an instant hit in my mind. It's a unique design that's super sleek, menaning and put on a great show plowing through the ELS in the 00 movie. I loved the blue so much that for the first brave I didn't paint it, just panel lined and top coated.

But recently I came across the standard type and had to re-experience it.

Customisations:
 - covered up all the holes at the back of the knees, head fins, elbows.
 - extended the arm length by 2mm.
 - changed the shape of the feet, lengthening the front to a sharp point and the extending the read into two prongs.
 - scratch built a combat knife. The blade is a piece of pla plate cut to shape and bevelled. The handle is the spare handle from the rifle slightly modified.

Set up work:
 For this project I imagined the brave is flying close to the surface in it's MA mode, dodging shots from an overhead enemy. When an opportunity shows itself the brave seamlessly transforms, turns to face its opponent, dispatch them with a well placed rifle shot and transform back to MA mode to continue cruising. I wanted to capture that moment when the enemy pilot is looking down the barrel of the Brave's drake howling, lamenting how utterly screwed they are.

So for this project I fixed the Brave in a single position. To emulate overhead lighting I painted the whole model in black, then painted it from above between 45 degrees and directly above in white; so the model is pre-shaded.

Purple Armour Paint:
 - Grey primer
 - Black then white pre-shade (described above)
 - Purple paint
 - panel line with blue enamel paint

White Armour Paint:
 - Grey primer
 - Black then white pre-shade (described above)
 - Purple paint
 - White paint
 - panel line with blue enamel paint

Black armour paint:
 - Grey primer
-  Black then white pre-shade (described above)
 - Black base
 - Dark grey (95% black + 5% white) in the centre of panels
 - panel line with blue enamel paint

Frame paint:
 - Grey primer
 - Black Base
 - Gun metal
 - Silver dry brush
 - Black enamel wash
