It’s started Saturday, January 29, 2011 the first Turbocontes of NKGC.
From January 29 you have 10 days to complete a model that has not been in any way already partially built or “cleansed” from sprue.
I opted for the Mecha Colle Series Mazinger Z from Bandai.
Below the first shots of the faster WIP of the earth … 😀
Fitting this model and its filling does not have any particular problems, while the torso and pelvis are made of rubber and do not allow an adequate smoothing. To reduce the problem, I applied the a diluited grout and I’ve textured it with a brush on these two parts.
The color was done with Tamiya acrylics. The base is made with DAS and a paste to simulate the soil.
I must admit that the contest has given a boost of energy to my modeling, and although the Mazinger definitely has flaws, I’m pretty happy with the result so far.
