Troublesome oh troublesome...

A very long time didn't update my blog this month..^^;

So, no new gunpla to do, so I just remake my Sinanju instead.

Few weeks ago, when I was tidy up my gunpla, I notice my paint job on Sinanju is scratched & peeled off on some areas, I mean, OMFG ! There's no way I recovered it by simply spray it again, so I decided to just, strip the paint and re-do whole process again.

A very time consuming though...=.="

So I've done strip & re-paint the shield, problem is I ain't using gundam marker gold as it will fade someday sooner, waterslide decals is a no no to this since 1 of the long section of the decal is splits into 3 pieces. Great another troublesome situation. My only hope was on this, foil stickers. Problem is I don't need the black areas, which mean I MUST trim it up...oh my, here it go..
OK, that's just the emblem located on shield, I haven't decided if I want to use foil sticker on the chest's emblem though, or should I ?

See the lower end of the emblem ? That's where I screwed. Dang.

Trouble keep come & come, especially weather. Why ? See below.

Frosting havoc !! But wait, it looks more like.....weathering ? Maybe some weathering touch like silver for scratched effect could cover it up, is it ?





Well, on the shield there isn't much frosting occurred except on some edges,


like there.

Well, hate to admit, even though raining day is good when taking a good long nap/sleep, but it's a no good situation for using hobby spray cans. Shiet.
