January 19, 2006 Ok, I was originally going to start
this project several years ago but it fell by the wayside. The recent
FictenFoo forum contest extention gives me about 10 days now to finish
this sucker up. I have no paint scheme idea yet, but currently I have
a few places where I want to add a slight amount of bulk and fill in some
holes and such. I also drilled out a few thruster holes. We'll see if
I can finish this in time.
January 22, 2006: Ok this weekend was kinda of a bust in
terms of building time. Spent time building a grill, and finished up cleaning
out my old apartment. But I got the following done. My new progress modeler
for size comparison. I snapped the Kampfer together to get a look at some
of the mods.
Like the last MG Kampfer I completed, I'm adding a "Zaku"
shield for the left arm. The shield is part of an MG Zaku's shield that
I cut down to fit the SD profile.
Next is the sanded down head with slight modifications to
the chin. I have a few more pieces to sand down and I should have all
pieces primed tomorrow evening.
January 23, 2006: Finished up sanding. Also added an extended barrel for
the shotgun. THe last thing done was priming. Tomorrow I get some sanding
to fix some problem areas that showed up from the first layer of primer.
January 24, 2006: Small update. Started painting some of
the areas that will be masked off first.
January 25, 2006: A little more painting. Just painting
in layers, masking, then more paint. Next step will be the main colors.
January 27, 2006: Ok I did some work yesterday but it wasn't
significant enough to have an update so I combined the pictures taken
yesterday and tonight's. Yesterday I painted the main colors for the body,
head, feet, and arms.
Tonight, I masked off the right arm so I can paint the shoulder
white. Once the white was dried, I used a mix of red pearl powders and
future floor polish and sprayed that over the white shoulder. For the
rest of the main body, I used a mix of micro pearl and future to create
a metallic effect for the main body parts.
