The Age-2 is pretty much all cleaned up and ready for priming, but unfortunately since I don’t have a light in my painting space, and no free time to paint on the weekend or even to get me some light, this guy will probably be stalled for a couple of weeks.
I’ll probably start working on the MG Delta Plus or I’ll continue the RG RX-78-2. Still undecided.
My first entry for the Gundam Eclipse Summer Wars 2012 will be this guy, the HG 1/144 Gundam Age-2 Normal. As usual the first step when building a model kit will be snapping it together to more easily see where are the problem areas that I will have to work on, and get a better feel for the model.
Compared to the RG RX 78-2 that I have been working on, this guy is way simpler, with a lot fewer parts, but even with that, it looks good, has a quite superb range of motion and feels solid, I’ve had no problem at all posing him. Also as most of the HG kits the parts are almost all moulded in its proper colour and many of the seam-lines are well placed.
That said there are a few spots that will need some fixing with the help of my good friends, masking tape, glue, sandpaper and friends.
