While waiting for the Tofurky roast to cook, and after spending hours looking at the computer screen doing re-writes and edits, I decided I might as well put these stickers on the Fat Jet (Egg Jet) that I assembled a couple of weeks ago.
WIP shot of the R-GREY1 (from the shmup RayStorm) after about… 10 episodes of G Gundam. This kit has more panel-lines and greebles than a Katoki Gundam has decals. Used a Gundam marker to roughly draw in the lines and wiped with a bit of tissue for a much softer look.
Finding a beginner’s guide to mecha modeling is tough. Most people that make them are usually super advanced and have no idea how intimidating it is for those who aren’t used to it. Virtually all the guides go in to way too much detail and far too much about painting, but this guide is nice in that it breaks it out.
If you’re new to the whole thing don’t be intimidated, look at the basics, the tools and the process and start there. Don’t go too much in to painting, it’s only necessary if you want super nice results so no need to go super perfectionist, just get something done.
