hguc Geara Zulu WIP part V


UPDATE 03-14-10: painting the base color

Ello guys, I painted the hguc Geara Zulu today, I was slowed down by watching the Manny Pacquio fight though. I painted this for 3 hours but watching the fight in between rounds made the painting session last up to 5 hours. Anyways, I primed this with Bosny primer grey ( industrial grade primer ) and painted this with Tamiya acrylics with Tamiya paint retarder. I ran out of yellow so I painted the cable parts in flat aluminum. I also forgot that I do not have a white paint anymore, so I airbrushed the white with a Citadel skull white. The citadel paint is as big as the Tamiya acrylic jars but it is more than twice the price. I mixed the Citadel paint with a drop of water and it dries pretty fast and is very nice and smooth. I also enjoyed shading the thrusters with silver and copper...looks ok. Now here are some pics...

I gave all the pieces some nice wet sanding before putting them to satay sticks for priming...


Primed the parts with Bosny primer grey...roughly 3 thin coats after an initial mist coat...


Tamiya acrylic paints, Tamiya acrylic thinner and Tamiya acrylic paint retarder...my Tamiya HG airbrush III is off cam ( coz it's dirty )...


Thanks for viewing! ;) til' next post!
