Well better late then never. WIP in the powered GM Thunderbolt ver. I've started mods and first round of putty and sanding. Using the Gundam backpack and some resin thrusters as the square doesn't look right. Other parts are from the mark 2 and random bits from the parts bin.

I have the refill bottle, it's 17ml if I remember right, and it goes fantastic through an airbrush. The refill bottle is expensive but it goes a very long way. It doesn't need any specific primer it can go straight on plastic, although I haven't tried this. Top coat with aquagloss for protection. You lose a bit of shine but not a huge amount. Since it's a gloss finish it does show up in perfections. Worth the punt!!!

Well someone had to be first. Might as well be an also ran........

My base kit is the P Bandai MG Powered Gm. I love the bulk of this suit, it looks like it can take some serious shit. For a kit that's based on an older kit the seem lines aren't too bad, the forearms and back of the ankles. The main mod will be the backpack but that won't be all.

Happy building guys I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else is entering. Live me some grunt suits.

Depends what your undercoat is. For acrilics I'm using Ammo of Mig or Greso. For laqceur I'm using allclad flat kote but I believe you can get a 2k Matt clear which is tough as nails. I've used the gloss and it's very good. I've no complaint with the flat coats I'm using.

WIP #2

Been working on two extra shields to be held by the backpack arms, like the Gundam.

First couple of attempts were not good. The first I was trying to use the sinanju skirt armour inner frame parts but it looked crap and awkward. Next attempt it was too bulky and didn't fit in with the original. But it all started to click into place. Looked through my parts bin and found a few detail parts. Have the shields glued and the detail parts tacked in place. Next up is putty and sanding and on to the sleeves and chest piece. Also did some test paint.

Ok my latest build. I put it off while I got a few bits organised but I'm ready to start. Going to add a few metal power cables and shoulder spikes. Trying to come up with an alternative for the bin bags around the limb joints, any suggestions welcome, so far all that comes close to working is a washed, dried and coloured baby wipe. This is thin enough to go around the joints but robust enough to not rip. I'm not sticking with standard colours as I'm thinking a veteran suit that has had a refit and nice shinny paint. So far I've denubbed and put all the thrusters and verniers on tape ready to paint, then onto the weapons. Get the tedious jobs out of the way so I can really enjoy the rest of the process. I a few other ideas brewing and I'll post as I get them done.

For now see what took what seemed like days to do.

 So so many. Ok a few spares but that's Incase I stuff up some painting

Might have been a pain in the bum but it has paid off this looks great and I'm looking forward to the end product.

You cant go wrong with that advice. Also when it comes to assembly try using a tray with a felt top, sometimes called a card tray. The bonus is the lip of the tray you don't lose the smaller parts to the carpet monster and the felt top stops parts getting scratched . If you lay everything out you will surprise yourself about how much you remember parts go.
