With the G Gundam the idea is to play around and experiment with modifications and such. So let’s look at what has been done with the head. Above you can see the three pieces that make up the head. I wanted to try and get rid of the seam line which means…
Cutting this piece allows me to glue the seam line and then insert this piece afterwards. But to do that I need to…
Okay, nothing too exciting here. I simply separated the small fin from the large one.
Leaving that for now I moved onto the legs. Or would the correct tense be; Leaving that for then I moved onto the legs. I’ve been in Japan just long enough to start losing some English. Soon I will speak neither language well. But I digress… I won’t be doing anything to the armour but I did want to try something with frame. I picked up some parts from Wave and Kotobukiya.
I test fitted a vent, or is it nozzle?, onto the leg frame where the rear armour lifts off, however, it was slightly too long and prevented the leg from closing properly. I had to cut away a tiny sliver of plastic and do some sanding.
I broke out my seldom-used tube of Mr. White Putty and got to work filling in the spaces.
After that dried I sanded it down and then glued on the the Nozzles. Or was it Vents? What word did we decide to use for these? They look alright don’t you think?
