HGUC Kshatriya SAGE Conversion WIP 2

So with all of the priming and puttying I had to do I find it slightly easier to do WIP posts.
I orginally Brought this:
Testors Contour Putty

First time using it and its pretty amazing. I primed all the pieces and checked for problems.
Everything was pretty good just some inconsistence’s in the actual pieces that were easily fixed by sanding. And here are the problem pieces.

The Putty works really good so I ended up having a real nice time with it. I didn’t get a chance to use the epoxy putty so I might return it and get a different kind since the one I have,
suppose to have metal fillements in them that makes it hard to sand >_> Anywho I use this putty and just let it sit over night. Next day I sanded as you can see in the picture so I went from this:
to this
(The left piece I had to re do I messed it up lol)

Next I will prime the pieces again and if everything checks out hopefully by the weekend or Friday ill be able to start painting.


HGUC Kshatriya Conversion WIP 1

So I started on this kit ^_^ And this is my first time doing a conversion kit. So I am super excited to do this. And hopefully it will come out awesome and ill end up buying at least 1 more Conversion.
So to start I have to soak the pieces there is tons of mold release on them. So I soak in the warm and soapy water. I been soaking them for the last two days because I been so busy. Every once in awhile ill go and shake up the container to get the bubbles up. When i’m finished hopefully everything is gone. If not ill go grab some degreaser (probally get some anyway though)

Darker areas are the mold release

After cleaning everything I noticed one of the pieces is going to need some major work. Here is the piece

So taking a look at it there is alot of spots on it that are messed up. here is what it suppose to look like:

So umm yea I need to figure out how to fix those holes (shoot me a email or comment if you have any suggestions)
I think first of all I probally will need to build just that back piece depending on how it goes onto the kit and just paint it as one piece and just go crazy with masking. Dunno yet but ill keep you posted.
