September 27, 2005: Started working on an Asuka Langley
kit tonight. She was swimming in some industrial strength purple goo cleaning
agent for the past couple of days. I scrubbed the parts down and after
drying them, pinned the parts and started on some sanding work. Here are
a few pictures of her pinned and a picture next to the good ole RGM-79G
for size reference.
September 28, 2005: Fun with sanding and putty. Finished
up the major mold line sanding tonight. There are two spots on the head
where the casting messed up and the chunks were missing from the head.
The leg and left side of the body had a couple of holes that I found.
I fill all these places up with gap filling CA glue. Just a little drip
here and there. I glued the skirt together so when the CA glue set, I
added putty to fill in the small gaps. There's a small gap between her
breasts and her shirt so I used some putty and filled that area in as
well. Putty was also used to make a smooth connection from the dress's
straps to the top of the dress.
The next chance I get to work on her will be Friday, so
I should be able to finish up the sanding, and then she's ready for primer.
Then I get to look for errors and hopefully there are only a few so I
can move on to painting. Oh the masking fun...
