Completion of Project MG Zeta Gundam Version 1.0 (20th Anniversary)












After some setbacks, Jason's MG Zeta Gundam '20th anniversary chrome version' finally had been given a facelift. First problem encountered was during the disassembling, I broke some 'male and female connectors' that fasten the parts together. Other problems included the original chrome layer chipping off after spraying as well as the new paint mixing with the chrome hence causing unevenness due to the erosion. I had to scrap off some parts to respray and do some paint patching. As for the broken parts, plastic cement and clamping them together will do the trick. Reassembling it without the parts' label was an uphill task too! The finally product may not be perfect nevertheless I'm satisfied of the outcome. I was surprised that the stickers could still be used after it was left untouched for more other a decade. I hope Jason will be happy to see this on Christmas day.

awesome job you done here. Do plan to panel line it later?

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Thx bro, actually I already did some light panel lining. Zeta Gundam does have less area to draw lines.

i think a repaint job is always harder, specially when u work with chrome parts... as u mentioned the scratched chrome leaves something like craters in the resin surface (as they should b applied in thick layers to cover the dark resin) & well, the broken joints r a big problem always... still looks nice & it was brought to life again by ur work, congrats !!! =)

You are so right bro, you really speak like a pro, bro! Lol... I'm still a novice and takes a lot of trial & error.

Seems that I spend more effort on my friend's kit rather than mine. Glad that my new job gave me more leisure time. Hee! Hee!

Merry Christmas to you and your love ones too! Thank you for dropping by despite your busy schedule. I looking forward to more toys next year too and desperately looking for a 1/100 RX-44 Guntank from F91 Gundam anime.
