Yes, that’s right, after over 6 months of work, the S Gundam is finally done. I’m just going to get right into it, so here we go:
I have to admit, the red scheme worked so much better than the blue it was molded in. Plus the panel shading helps the color stick out really well.
I did a few customizations on the kit – I moved the sight of the Beam Smart Gun to the top, instead of the side. As mentioned, I also added the side cannons, which you can see here. I also used pen cases for the shoulder cannons, the ones included in the kit were way to short.
In case you’re wondering why it’s called a “Smart” gun, the technology of the rifle allows for the beam shot to arch towards its target, unlike the traditional straight shot.
I tried to do red striping on the beam saber hilt, but meh, it didn’t turn out like I thought it would.
Tamiya Chrome Silver for the thrusters, with gold inner rings.
The pen cases worked pretty well, though I ended up having to use model glue to keep them attached to the mount.
and here’s a final shot of the S Gundam next to the Powered GM for comparison.
So there we go.
I’m going to try and get some of my back collection updated as well…hence the Powered GM seen here.
Hope you guys like the S Gundam.
I’ll post again shortly,
