Here he is, the Musha Mk-II Gundam! This kit saw my first real attempt at using epoxy putty, with better than anticipated results, as well as the use of aftermarket parts.
Frame: Tamiya TS-26 Pure White – I wanted this to represent the clothing that the samurai would wear underneath their armour.
Armour: Tamiya TS-29 Semi Gloss Black, TS-4 German Gray, TS-30 Silver Leaf, TS-46 Light Sand
Decals: Used sparingly. Anything white is the official Bandai waterslides while samueldecal.com provided the silver decals which I used on the emblems.
Other: Kotobukiya Mesh Pipe and Wave Springs
Here are a couple of comparison shots to show the work done to this kit before painting began.
You can see where I puttied to fill in one of the gaps on the feet. I then used decals to make it look like a cord so it would resemble geta, or japanese footwear.
Be sure to see all the shots in the Gallery!
