Wip – 2009 – SD GP03 Dendrobium


For the SD Contest NKGC I decided to build a small but cute SD GP03 Dendrobium !!!!!
The job is big, because the SD has big holes in the dendrobium. The GP03 will be modified and improved in some parts …
Once completed the GP03 Gundam (yet to improve though …) I’m passed to the Dendrobium, on which there is a big job to do …
Thanks to the mythical plasticard I will close the “body” of Dendrobium, including housing for foot …
Of course it goes further improved and detailed …
All of the excess should be cut off and filed …
We start the closure of the upper container, before fully open. Hence always faithful plasticard, I take measures and start to cut the strips the right size …
After filled and sanded, smoothed and filled million times, I got a good point. The dendro needs some further improvements, the Gundam is in place.
The hands of the GP03 Gundam, one who holds the fine and the other the M** Don***’s bag were reconstructed with plasticard.
The satellite-road sign and the drop typical of Japanese manga are entirely built from scratch
After a couple of days spent at home sick, I brought forward quickly with the model, the Gundam and Dendrobium are painted. After this stage I applied various decal, but I forgot to take pictures …
Just for the record, the colors are all Tamiya, Mr Surfacer 1000 primer, Badger airbrush.
As I left a black stain on the whole model, and then begin to lighten the parts with a very light gray, given highly diluted and low pressure. I then cleared the areas that interested me, creating a really convincing three-dimensional effect.
I finally paint a coat of Emulsio Facile (floor wax …) and I rehearsed the panel lines with a black oil diluted with gasoline Zippo (excess can be easily removed with a cotton swab soaked in the same gasoline).
Finally I applied some decal …
