Twofer!

And these are just the teaser shots! As you can see, my lightbox isn’t big enough to accommodate this beast so I’m going to have to make something more sizable to properly photograph the absolutely gigantic wingspan of this kit. The custom base is still planned out, I haven’t started it yet due to work screwing up my paycheck and missing an entire day of pay. Overall I am MUCH happier with this PG SF build than the original rendition, my attention to detail was much better this time around and that’s reflected in the quality of the paintjob as well as the small touches like the pistons and painted whites. But this isn’t all I’ve been plugging away at in the last few months!

The Hayabusa Astray turned out great! I got a little feedback from some folks that led to some changes in the chrome and gloss black distribution and I think those changes made a good kit turn out even better. The TA turned out really awesome too, despite not painting the handle and other gunmetal bits. Titanium gold and pale gold came together nicely and while the weapon is flashy as hell compared to the rest of the ‘silent’ kit but considering the weapon itself is pretty loud due to it’s size I think it works alright.

Next up is repairing and finishing PG Wing Zero Custom! There’s a few bits I need to replace and I need to rewire the LEDs for the chest and get these rifles all wrapped up. The battery holders I got were too loarge to fit inside the rifles so it’s back to the drawing board for that.

    awesome… really love those silver and gold. too bad I can spot some nub marks, I presume you didn’t sand the pieces? =)
    just wondering, how do those gold painted parts compare to the gold plated parts that came in the box?

    Yeah, there are a few parts from the previous build that I didn’t replace that I cut the nubs off (especially obvious on the rifles and a few other areas) but at the end of the day you can’t see them in person- macro mode is great for showing off the tiniest flaws.

    The Alclad II pale gold is kind of a close match to the duller gold (the sort of darkish one)- though it has more shine to it than they do.

    I see… tamiya’s spray gold is nowhere near the gold in your kit, haha. thanks for answering.
