This project is an old commissioned work that I could now finally work on. I just got the Bandai MG Z'Gok a weekend ago and started work on the base / diorama. I almost almost start with the base or diorama as I like seeing the initial stages of the build with the base.
Will partially work on this diorama as I work on my other old commission works in the following weekends.
I offered my client my old MG Zaku F2 build as a sacrifice for his MG Z'Gok diorama. My client agreed to give me an unbuilt Bandai MG Char's Zaku in return. My old MG Zaku F2 deserves to die anyways as the paint job is not good anyways.
I used and constructed a wooden frame ( with the help of my Dad ) for this diorama as I think wooden frames gives a more professional look to any diorama builds. Gone are the days when I used to just slap dioramas of plain plastic sheets and stuff.
I used an acrylic sheet for the platform of the wooden base, then added a styrofoam for the hill / island. I then slapped my old MG Zaku F2 and painted Vallejo texture paints to hold the dead Zaku in place. Now I am painting over some Vallejo water effects as I feel a MG Z'Gok will feel out of place without any water in it's diorama.
Hope to post more progress on this build soon! Thanks as always for dropping by! Just enjoy the hobby guys! :)
