Completed: Gundam PG 1/60 RX-78

Here's the completed kit, panel lined and decaled. This was a relatively quick job compared to PG 1/60 RX-178 Titans as I had assembled the kit before hand, and just needed to separate the parts for painting.

    Great job on your PG RX! Wish i could do the same with mine...
    What did you use for the Panel Lines? how you removed smudges from errors in panel lines if any?
    Did you managed to connect the light up eyes wirings?
    About the paint you said Glossy, i prefer to use the Flat (less error IMO) then just use a glossy clear coat for areas you wanted to be shiny.
    Did you applied final Clear Coat to protect the decals and paint?
    by the way this PG is the same height as the 1/6 figures right?

  1. It's a nice and neat finish to the PG RX78-2. The decals were also very nicely pasted. There much be quite some satisfaction?

    @al: Thanks for your constant encouragement through this journey :)

    I used tamiya enamel to wash the lines in, and used lighter fluid to remove errors.

    Yes I did connect the lights for the eyes, but haven't got round to buying the batteries. LOL.

    I prefer to use flat too, but the cheap paints I'm using only come in glossy colours, except for black and white.

    I didn't apply a final topcoat actually, so I'll have myself to blame if I scrape off the decals and paints.

    Yup it's about 12 inch tall.

    @dennis: Thanks bro, made paint and decalling mistakes though. No time to feel satisfied actually, starting my next kit soon.

    Hi Shaun. It's been some time I check back on the progress of the Titan and you have already completed another PG! Great job! Really envy you for having the time to complete this fantastic looking models. Keep it coming bro.

    Thanks Jon, two down, two more kits to go. The next one will be a relatively easy job, but the fourth one is going to be a killer.

    Yes, I am thankful I can dedicate three hours each evening to Gundam, at least until Jan. :)
