I finally got off my ass to decal and paint the gun details finishing the bloody kit. With the wash, decals, and wood complement to the weapons, I think everything is fairly balanced. I enjoy exploring different paint techniques and doing stuff that’s different, of course, this usually means folks don’t care much for it. But I’m building for me, and no anyone else. Plus, I got to get the burning need to experiment with paint out of my system. I have a bunch of other projects that are on my plate, so with this sucker down, I can get back to focusing on the commission IJ and another commission kit I have in the queue.

Here are a few more pictures of the kit from a few different angles.

    you’re right, you build models for your self. Which is why I never ask for opinions about my models during the build process it mucks up my vision for the end result.

    I’m sure you’ve heard from everybody by now that the wood grain looks amazing but what really stood out was the armor for me. The fact that it was a samurai alone made it stand out but the marble camo effect really made it say “I’m not your average gundam”

    Heh.. I had a really fun time doing the wood grain…. I’ve been itching to do that since the Haruhi Guitars…. I think I may take it a step farther and do a full gunpla kit in wood grain… I’m thinking the new GM 2.0 will be a good candidate for the effect… it’s already plain looking. It’ll be my homage to the downgraded Bender…

    Tried to achieve the marble effect on a base before, but achieved a total fail!

    Needless to say, the marble effect is really outstanding, as the wood grain. Congratulations and thanks for the tutorials!
