WIP HGUC 1/144 Ex-S - Hell in the box

Merry Christmas everyone ! I'm guessing everyone had their Christmas gift already, well enjoy with ya gifts. ^^"

Anyway, I've been through this kit since the beginning of this week, but only manage to had time to post it today. ^^"


As usual, working on floor is uncomfortable but then, safer from parts disappearance.


Annoying: it hollow shouldn't be closed, so I'ma dig it off.


Now now, wasn't that look better ? More ideas can be inserted here like LEDs. =D Pity I forgot how to wire those up already haha....


Major, I mean really, big & major problem; 70% of this kit really require the seamline removal, REALLY. Look pics above, it's fugly shiet if ya don't seam remove 'em, all of 'em. Oh gawd....


Connectors. Uh oh I seen this as problem already, once snapped there's no way ya can separate it off without leaving white spot marks.


Sanded it. Whew. 3 more sets to go. Uh oh.....


Better start mark 'em up or I'm confuse which is what. Seam line hell level on this kit is really, 90%. Truly not for weak heart gunpla modeler.


SEE !? SEE !? Seam line removal fail on both upper arm parts. YES BOTH HAD THE WHITE LINE. But I think I just cover it up with Dark Blue Gundam Marker from Seed set. Look similar though.


Cement & wait it dry for the next day sanding hours. >.>


Only finished this part for now, because, the blue part shoulder armor itself needs seam removal. Again.

Once again, I'ma tell ya guys who read this, this is not for weak-heart gunpla modeler.

=P

To be honest, this one of the kit that I always wanted, until... Dalong showed what it's like without painting... uggu...

Seam lines are a common part of me now. XD

@bd,

YESH, it's too plain. I even had to panel wash, it never look justified if using water based gundam panel liner marker....

@ZD,

Ex-S shoulder seems really big for a HGUC Gunpla :D

This kit is seems to be too much work for a lazy guy like me.... and once done, I don't think it can do action pose easily - it's all about "overweight"....
