Ok, so I just finished painting, and am somewhat satisfied.
I did the Max technique, but didn't do the full layers.
I did 3 layers. It was coming out great, but on my last
layer of white, I ran out of thinner! As you can see, the
last layer is very speckled. But oh well, not much that
I can do now. It turned out decent in the end, so I'm happy.
Panel lines, as usual was done with a wash, using testors
enamel, since I ran out acrylic thinner. Other than that,
not many other details.
This actually turned out to be a bigger project than I had
planned. Anyways I made a couple modifications.
Torso: I actually first decided to just lengthen the torso
a bit so the MS wouldn't look so wide. But what ended happening
is I lengthened the upper half and the lower half somehow
was warped so I ended up building it from plastic sheet
and filled with putty epoxy. Completed
Chest: Finished the cockpit. Basically it's done. I will
probably touch it up a little after priming to see if it
looks right. Completed
Waist: I connected the front panel with the side and back.
Reason for this was that I was doing a little research,
and I saw it looked like that in the original design. Completed
Legs: I made the lower leg fatter, as in depth. I lengthened
the upper part of the leg by inserting plastic sheet. Completed
Arms: Connected the two arm pieces. Completed
