エバグリプラ (e-ba-gu-ri pu-ra) is how Evergreen Plastic is called here in Japan. Evergreen is a company that sells sheets and rods of styrene for modelling purposes. It cuts, glues, sands, and paints very well. I picked up some at work for this project. I am using .3 millimeter thick sheet plastic and just cut and trim it to size. Luckily I have quite a lot more than I need so I can make mistakess.
Here is the back skirt portion of the F91. I have added depth and/or detail by cutting and gluing the Evergreen plastic.
I then put some more cement along the seam lines to completely fill the gap and then once dry sanded it down using 400 grit paper and then smoothed it out using 1000 and 1500 grit. It turned out much better than I expected.
This is the shoulder portion. Both sides have the styrene added. I had to putty the seam along the top and sand that down as well. Seam lines.. boo! Hiss!
And this is part of the weapon system of the F91. I just added a small section of styrene. Most likely you won’t be able to see it on the completed model. But I know it’s there and that’s good enough.
Next up… getting ready for painting. Will I be able to fix that problem with the head?
