Sinanju painting -1-

After watching the amazing Gundam Unicorn OAV episode 1 I was really motivated to continue working on the Sinanju :) - And with the Qubeley finished (pics to follow) I started working on the S.

Started with the backpack:

After a round of primer:

Overall the parts breakdown is really good and should make it easy to paint.
Over the gray I'm planning to spray a layer of white as I'm not sure if the yellow or orange (that I am planning to paint the Sinanju with) is strong enough to cover the gray...

Also got these sanding stick at a local hobby store for ~12Euro

totally worth the investment, really useful when working with resin. Recommended!

HGUC Hy-Gogg part 2

Crammed out that Hy-Gogg. Hah!
Painted some parts in Tamiya Royal Blue and gave it a shark mouth, those always looked insanely cool to me :)

The blue paint looks a bit messy below, i think thats from the fumes of the white paint as I used white primer out of a can... yeah.

Need a bit of cleanup now and I'll probably add a black outline around it.

All this I did while listening to Tegan and Sara which are pretty cool!

Qubeley progress again 2

So I have been rather busy lately, but I managed to squeeze in some Q work this weekend.

Started with painting the Bits in silver, following the advice someone posted in the comments about thinning the (pre thinned!) Vallejo Air color with water. This worked pretty well after thinning it about 3:2 ~ 2:1, but it was still a bit bothersome to clean out of the airbrush. I would have used alcad, but it's too cold for that to spray at the moment.

Used the Vallejo Steel as base color and painted the rest with Yellow, Gunmetal & Smoke as well as black sumi-ire.

Turned out pretty good, but I forgot to paint one of the bits -_-;

Also started masking and painting the reaming flaps and internals.
