I was finally able to sit down and shoot some videos for the weathering processes of the dirty Nu kit. So with that done, here are some pictures of the complete Nus… well about as complete as they can be for the time being. I still haven’t finished the weapons or funnel systems for both kit, and I will be getting to that, hence the lack of a complete page. They aren’t quite done yet, but getting there.

Time for a small weekend update. Actually, this is work done from near the end of last week and sunday night. I had a fairly busy weekend so I didn’t get as much as I wanted done, but progress is moving along.

I did a quick assembly of most of the parts for a primed vs snapped comparison picture:

Next up, I found the back of the knee cables a little bland, so using some magnet wire, I wrapped around them creating some springs. Hopefully this will look good when I finish painting this part.

Initial base color for the white parts were painted on, I used Intermediate Blue from Mr Color.

Finisher’s Pure White was then sprayed on using the intermediate blue as a preshade color:
