While moveability of NZ isn’t one of its forte, I was quite taken to its pose in the mechanic file, where it has its arms outstretched. The kit wouldn’t do it as one of the parts was obscuring the movement. I opted to convert the part to a double ball joint… And now the arm… Continue reading Neo Zeong arms II
Getting closer! Detailing the arms is a real chore since you have to do it six times. That’s the beauty of this beast. Following the mechanic file image, added these details… Realized that I can use the kotobukiya pistons for the funnels, I think I’ll go with this
Continuing on NZ, with exhaust flaps from photoetch parts. I was debating whether to detail the bowl in the tail, but found a satisfactory configuration of parts so here we go. I have a hard time mixing a red that I like since I can decide between the original dark red vs a lighter more… Continue reading Exhaust details for Neo Zeong
Was bothered by the empty space inside the hands now that I converted all of them to movable fingers, so I savaged the landing gears from my millennium falcon kit to fill the void. Also used the BMC side scraper to create a number of edge details. I wish I could restart painting soon, but… Continue reading Neo Zeong hands
Neo Zeong doesn’t have much surface details therefore scribing panel lines is a must. After some trial and error, finally got the hang of using the chisel to create the recessed details.
I don’t know why I still have the will to carry this through, but I do! Spent the weekend creating panel line and recessed details in the fingers… all 30 of them! I’ll have 4 of the funnel bits floating. When they are detached, they open up and extend into 3 shards. Now I’m going… Continue reading Neo Zeong Fingers II
Its painful to do this 30 times! But the fingers is one mod I didn’t see a lot of, and the illustrations of NZ always comes in a certain way. Also planning to install ball joints at the bases of the fingers rather than the fingers themselves… I think that’s the way NZ was always… Continue reading Neo Zeong fingers
OMG is it a figure update?! Taking a breather from my sabbatical (that doesn’t sound right…), I’m finding some time to wrap up some of the kits I’ve been working on FOREVER. First up is this set of 3 Keiko girls – Holiday, Yasumi and Suzumi in swimsuit. Originally I had them organized in a… Continue reading WIP!
Cranking it! After being in suspended animation for almost a year, I’ve finally done the touch up required to finish up this grail kit of mine, Silent Moebius Venus Plaque. Enjoy 🙂 (nudity alert)
After some weekend fight with this kit I’m feeling a bit unmotivated, so I’ll write some WIP instead 🙂 The first batch of glass didn’t work as well as I expected so I exchanged them for a couple of others. Shipping glass is expensive! Anyway I’ve gotten 2 new pieces back, one “aqua iridescent” and… Continue reading Attack of the grail kit part 7
