BLOG: Tap That Top Coat! THE ROBOT SPIRITS Gundam Astray Out Frame D
|Here’s a quick project before the year ends. Was contemplating for the longest time on whether to detail a ROBOT Damashii figure. In this context, detailing meant inking panel lines, placing decals, and applying a layer of matte top coat.
For the first test subject (LOL!), here’s Gundam Astray Out Frame D. The process was pretty straight forward thanks to the simple body structure and standard accessory count. It took just over three hours of work and the final result was very satisfying.
It also opens a totally new can of worms of whether to do the same to the other figures in the CATALOGUE. This certainly won’t be the last and many other figures that look very ‘toyetic’ would benefit such treatment.
So yeah, hoping that the incoming year would be full of actual model kit builds!
