WiASP: Dimension Diver Samus WiP 2

Things are progressing at an agonizingly slow rate, but we have moved on and we’re closing in on the much awaited finish line for this thing.

Given that I’ve never used any of the colors I used on this kit before you can imagine just how happy I was that they all turned out so wonderfully. Tamiya’s Lavender (This is more purple than purple, I don’t know what they’re smoking) paint hasn’t been in stock once in the entire time I’ve been building models until now and at least it was 100% worth the wait. Combined with the chrome yellow, metallic blue and Italian red this thing is looking nothing short of fantastic. The arm cannon even turned out great even though olive drab didn’t reach all of the areas, giving it a slightly more authentic look. We’re still in need of a few more coats of purple and some fine detail work with the blue and arm cannon but this thing is going to be very neatly wrapped up soon barring any serious problems. Knock on wood!

    Funny how Dimension diver has a Gravity Suit Samus already planned for WonFes, or maybe it’s already been released… But the paintjob on this makes it look so much more awesome! That purple looks really nice, and I’ve also been given the chance here to see that Italian Red I bought but can’t use yet.

    @Ren: You’ve never played Metroid? You don’t know what incredible epicness you’re missing!

    That’s looking really nice Lupes. Great work. She soooo badly wants aurora sticker on that visor though.

    Actually, that purple looks really close to the purple on the gravity suit in Metroid Prime 1.
