Getting off my ass and finally getting some work in; it’s time for a little update. In long run, it is good that the parts were allowed a good amount of time for the clears to completely cure. For the wash, I used model masters black thinned with napatha based lighter fluid.

Here are some before and after pictures of some of the panel lined parts:

And this Nu is pretty much done, with the exception of the funnels.

Next up will be the finishing work for the other Nu.

This weekend, I returned to working on the HGUC Nus. I got them gloss clear coated and ready for decals:

Here are some comparison pictures of the two Nus so far. In some of the pictures, you can see the weathering done to the decals.

Next up will be the panel line wash and another clear coat to finish up the “Shiny” Nu. There are a couple of more steps I need before I finish up the second Nu.
