Gaijin Gunpla

To start things off, I will give everyone a peak at the Unicorn head. There is some clean up left to be done, but you can get an idea what it will look like. The OVA unicorn doesn’t have any decals on the head but there is some ‘dead-space’, particularly on the back of the head, that I am thinking of filling.

I have also begun the masking on the weapons. I won’t be doing anything too extravagant, but I gotta make it mine, ya know?
This is from the bazooka:
Masked:
Unmasked:
And this is part of the barrel on the bazooka:
The bazooka will be silver and semi gloss black. I sprayed this piece black and then masked off the parts that will stay black before spraying the Silver Leaf. I will be taking a marker to do touch ups before topcoating. When I get home I will pull the masking tape off and see just how much touch up I have left for myself.
I should mention that right now my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law are staying at my house for a week so I don’t have lots of time to sit down and gunpla, but I am trying anyway!
The the elongated block for the center part of the rear of the skirt. I have glued and sanded and glued and sanded and came up with this (crappy picture):
After making this part longer I realized that the underside of the addition would be viewable when looking at the Unicorn from the front. Rather than have just a hollow, I decided to add something (not too difficult, of course) to make it a little more interesting.
This is all I could come up with:
I gave it a coat of Mr. Surfacer yesterday morning and then went out to paint it and, Oh noes!, had no more paint left in my spray can. Luckily there is one can available at work. It is now on my desk waiting to come home with me.
One of these days I should be feeling adventurous enough to tackle the feet.
