6 days after starting on the kit we finally crawled to the finish with the thing, well, as finished as we’re going to get anyhow.
Over the weekend, Angel finished up preshading the white. We had to redo a few things to fix some of the more major seams. There are still quite a few seams on the kit that we originally planned on attending to, but we just ran out of time. Saturday and into Sunday, the kit was decaled. Late Sunday evening, Mitch clear coated the entire thing.
Which brings us to Monday. After a weekend long session of building, AX stuff, and going back to work after said weekend, it was a little difficult to push ourselves to finish the thing. But at the very least, we got the panel lines done. I brought the kit over to Angel’s house and we did the panel lines there. It was about 11 PM by the time we finished panel lining, and I didn’t have the focus or energy to spray a flat clear coat while avoiding the metallic and clear pieces. The flat coat will frost the clear parts and will mess with the metallics. So a glossy finish it is.
Given a little more time, I believe we would have easily taken care of the seams here and there. But alas, it is done. For those of you going to Anime Expo 2009, Otakon 2009, or the San Diego Comic Con; check out the bluefin booth; this kit will be displayed there.
