RX-78-4 wrap up

This kit has a buttload of parts, and I laid them out on a big board...and then labeled them for color(It took me so long to build this kit, that I forgot my scheme, and actually had to redo it)  I had also done a pre-build...but FORGOT to note the parts to be welded...and I had 2 in the upper arm, and they were load bearing parts...and the lack of a weld caused me a few head aches......

 The painting took a long time..each color had to be sprayed 2 to 3 times per part...and the white needed more...and I kinda missed a few of those parts up...I did not inspect them as good as I should have

 Once every thing was painted up...this kit was very fun to build...a very good design, and if you do a prebuild, there should be no problems...just exercise the holes, and things should fit nicely

 I had a major flub on the back pack...I had to do a bunch of hand painting...and I used enamel paint...and I did not let it dry long enough before touching...aaarghhh
 The Cardinal color scheme came out pretty good...I did have a few parts I painted the wrong color, then had to repaint, so some reds were lighter

New post coming....RX 78-4 build pics and comments

RX-78-4 Cardinals Gundam
A quick shot of my RX-78-4 Gundam...From the Bird Brothers build off...I will be back with a few more build pics, and what I learned...and all the mistakes..flubs and things that made me pull my hair...and the praise I have for the guys who know how to do this stuff right...

This was my first MG Kit in a LONG time...and I used a airbrush for painting...and learned it is harder than it looks...so...back soon with  more dirt on the build...and hopefully Fennie will have his Seahawk RX post up soon as well
