The Hands!
These, too, turned out as I hoped they would. I sprayed the Gloss Aluminum on the joints, micro-masked (once again!) and then sprayed the German Gray. Some touch up was required but now they look somewhat like moving pistons and resemble the movable pieces on the arm and legs. I will save the ‘punch-you-in-the-face’ fist photograph for the photo shoot upon its completion.

The handles were painted in Gloss Aluminum, German Gray, and Gun Metal, just like the rifle was (and the Bazooka will be). The yellow transparent parts were painted over with Clear Orange to darken them up a bit.

The Frame!
Sorry for the lack of cool postures. It was some effort just to make this guy stand up by himself as I didn’t ‘snap’ everything into play when I assembled it. I don’t want to move him too much because the German Gray seems to come off fairly easily if I handle it too much with my sweaty hands. The ‘wings’ are still drying at home before decaling so they aren’t making an appearance either. Most of these details will be covered up by the armour, but I still am glad I did it.

    Yes a very nice update indeed. The thing I'm really enjoying about the SGBP is each of you are bringing something unique with your builds. In your case Gaijin Gunpla I'm really enjoying the micro masking, super fine attention to detail piston, joint, and highlight work.

    It is clear that your Sinanju is going to be a treasure to behold in person. Being able to look closely at those joints and obscured areas to see the awesome treats therein would be a real treat.

    im with tonzo. everyone is approaching it a bit differently but your attention to the details of the kit, while at the same time creating your own is really commendable.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I am really glad I am taking my time with this kit and getting good results. I really enjoy reading the SGBP thread and seeing everyone's work. I think when all is said and done, the final result of our combined effort will make something special.

    ^Agreed. Keep up the great work, and don't worry about time. It's not a race, that's why it's open ended remember? Hell I haven't even started! ^o^;

    Hey Syd where do you buy your aurora eye stickers?

      Hi Ken,

      I picked them up at HLJback when they first arrived these things always sell quickly though. I’m gonna need more soon, and intend to look around akihabara when I’m there in a couple weeks.

    Thank you but on HLJ’s website, what category would they be under

    • syd says:

      They would be under Scratch-building materials, I think. If you go to the advanced search and choose HIQ Parts as the company it will narrow the search quite a bit. If the items are discontinued though you won’t be able to order them.
