STURMDIAS -7- Current state of affairs

Started adding some decals to the Dias using mostly leftover decals from the Sinanju, some generic 1/144 ones and a few from the Dias decal sheet. The SMS ones that came with the kit are pre-cut, pretty nifty.

Upper body:
Internal stuff for the feet:
The whole thing, stuff that is finished so far:

STURMDIAS -6- more stuff again

Did a test fit of some of the (partially) painted parts so far. Even at this stage the kit is already backheavy :) Also the legs are too heavy for the yellow submarine joints to hold in place (in a flying pose) and I will have to glue them in place later on.
Otherwise the progress is pretty good :D

STURMDIAS -5- Summer is over

Summer is over :(  Started working on the Dias again :)
I semi-gloss coated the orange with "Erdal Glänzer". The internals are flat black with some stuff being Tamiya Gunmetal and other Metallic highlights. I have most of the lower half more or less finished (not all pictured) besides some panel lining and other small part stuff. More to come :D
