Gaijin Gunpla

After the paint had dried I was eager to see if the time-consuming masking I engaged in was worth the effort.

Here’s some pics of where I’m at so far.

My Delta Plus decals are on their way from Samuel Decal but I couldn’t resist putting this guy together to see how he looked.

Not bad if I do say so myself. You can see where I placed some of the aftermarket nozzles that I picked up when working on the HG G Gundam.   They fit perfectly as well.  I did round a couple corners slightly but they went in and stayed without having to use any glue.

There is one more section I wanted to use aftermarket parts on. The legs. I removed the seam-line on the big cylinder on the front of the leg but felt that, with the large amount of leg frame still showing, that it needed something more. I had some leftover aftermarket parts that were used on the Gunpla TV episode with the pink Geara Zulu, so I sprayed them with a coat of Smoke, and then glued them into the holes I drilled on the legs.


now looks like this:

Now I’ve got to do something with that gun.

    The markings and all are great, but for me the great winner is the main color you choose for him. Is i a dark blue? Because it justs looks perfect on δ Plus.

      Sorry for the late reply. The blue is Tamiya TS-53 Deep Metallic Blue and the darker color is TS-64 Dark Mica Blue.

    Those detail parts made a great difference. With the masking, has that bled under the tape, or chipped when you’ve unmasked?

      Some parts bled under the tape but as I maskedover the plastic I can use a knife and scrape it away if I feel the need to. I should be able to start decaling in a few days.
