1/100 MG Wing Zero Custom Progress Part 8
We're slowly making our way around the final 1/4 mile of the track. The majority of the buster rifles were finished today. I spent around 5 hours fixing, filling and sanding those things to make them as perfect as they can be. They await a touch up coat of gun metal and then some detailing.
When that is done I will flat coat them and that sub-section is complete. Tomorrow, the arms must be dealt with. I must flat coat the joints, carefully mask them, and paint white. Then remove the mask 6-12 hours later. The chance of some chipping is fairly good. Not much I can do about that. Then the backs of some wing parts need painting as they can show at certain angles. Then all final parts that are blue, gray, red and yellow will be primed and painted.
Then the eyes need installing. After that it's a good day to let everything settle and cure, then final assembly (with gloves) will begin. The base needs painting. When assembled, the kit will be top coated all over. The buster rifles will be sticky tacked to the hands. The wings will be sticky tacked into their proper holes for added stability.
