Wip – 2010 – 1/48 Gundam Unicorn Head


I was able to buy January 2010 Dengeki Hobby magazine, with attached the head base of the Gundam Unicorn in 1:48 scale.
Only two Sprue are contained in the package, one is white and one transparent red.
I must admit, however, remains very funny, although fast, the build of the Display Base. In all, including smooting of all parts, I put about an hour or so. Of course, nothing has been glued or puttied, but I’ll think about this later. What interested me was to build something to relax a little …
After a first preshading with black Tamiya thinned with alcohol, I switched to white, aways Tamiya and always diluted to about 50% with rose alcohol. The transparent parts are not colored, the neck and other parts are in color Gun Metal.
For the eyes I used masking tape to create a mask, cut with the cutter, and then color the background with black Vallejo …
After a lot of masking, I colored in Gun Metal also the neck area …
Bad luck! I lost the front of the piece that holds the horn …
Do not tell you how many curses have flown in that moment … 😀
However, armed with patience I’ve rebuilt it, still to be completed and finish …
The images of the finished model on the page of the finished model 😀
