Before 2011 ends..I wanna share my latest update to my Master Grade Sandrock that I'm currently doing now. It took me some time to finish the legs because I had some problems painting the right leg. I almost ruined a part of it. I even broke a part on it's knee. Those mistakes taught me the dos and don'ts when it's time to paint the left leg.
For the feet, I mixed Tamiya XF53 neutral grey with Tamiya X4 blue. I also add a liitle Tamiya X1 black and Tamiya X2 white unitl I got my desired color. For the yellow parts, I simply used Tamiya X8 lemon yellow. The white parts which makes the most of the parts for the legs had a couple of coats. First after putting primer, I painted them with TOA Spray paint white. I then painted it with RJ Clear Metallic.
Once all of the parts have been painted, I gave them some panel lines using 0.1 pigment ink. The next step was putting the decals and stickers to their respective places, and dry brush some parts with Tamiya XF20 medium grey enamel. I top coat them with RJ Dull Lacquer. I then built the two legs. However I also found some flaws in my work..it scratched the inner frame causing it to expose the original color of it.
Building gunplas is fun and exciting, but sometimes upsetting especially when you don't get what you really wanted. It is a continuous learning process wherein you can apply the lessons that you've learned from your previous work to your next project.
Happy New Year to everyone!!! Let's keep on building gunplas! :)
