Finished the Head of the S Gundam this weekend. I think it turned out just great.
I wanted to do something special for the Incom unit. I drilled out the barrels of the unit, using a simple hand drill.
Then, I clipped three small pieces of brass tubing. I managed to match the drill bit to the exact diameter of the tube.
I wish the decals included an INCOM decal, but unfortunately, Bandai seemed to have missed it.
I’m still working out the autofocus on my camera, but at least I figured out the Macro function. Here you can see the brass tubing for the barrels.
Here’s a better shot of the “Bust”. I ended up going with gold for the collar and upper cockpit section. I wanted to mix a yellow/orange, but it turned out too “peachy”, so I ended up staying with gold.
And one final (blurry) shot of the whole head.
I’ve started the back tonight as well, I’ll update more this week, so stay tuned!
