MG Zeta Plus C 1 WIP 1

alright.. forget about the first photo.. always get this kind of problem.. no matter how i fix it unless i make another copy of the first photo but since it just in WIP so i'm going leave it like this..

So.. my next project.. same as what i told you guys in the poll's post.. MG Zeta plus C1.. since i have the A1 version before.. i think it should be easy for me to build it and paint it.. i painted the A1 version.. and i'm going to paint this now.. wait.. before i tell you what i'm going to do with this kit.. how bout my opinion on this kit..

here it go.. this is one hell of the.. not that awesome kit.. it is an old version MG with simple structure than the MG Zeta or the ver.2 .. so.. don't expect too much from this kit.. articulation?.. the age of this will tell you.. design and proportion.. i can't tell much of it as i haven't watch the Gundam Sentinel anime but.. if you want Zeta plus come in more dynamic (or sexy) look version.. check out the G.F.F version.. too bad.. it is a limited item and not producing anymore if i'm not wrong.. my complain about the proportion of this kit is the waist or the abdomen part should be longer or thinner since the shoulders width with the chest is too wide.. now it completely looks like the design being "compress".. that is why the G.F.F version look better.. the second thing i want to talk about is those screws that come together with this kit.. i was thinking the joints of the entire kit were so stiff (arms and legs).. why it still need screws? to lock the joint tighter so that the joint won't easily lose in the future? maybe that is the answer but i had lot of bad experience when dealing with those tiny fragile screws ( in the MG Strike projects).. so.. i'm not going to use any screws that come with it.. transformable kit are fragile especially Zeta type.. it is only applicable on the chest and abdomen part.. other.. stiff like hell.. XD..

alright.. regarding on what i'm going to do on this kit.. simple.. just paint it.. not going to add any pla plate or panel line.. just paint it.. in term of color scheme.. i chose the blue Zeta plus color scheme which means i will deal with a lot of white color paint soon.. and as i study the blue color Zeta plus in G.F.F version.. the blue will come in light blue and dark blue which one of this color is actually the stripe.. the biggest problem i will have on the painting.. panel line.. this kit come with lot of original panel line and doing panel line after painting with gundam marker or the 0.2 Mitsubishi pen can still be difficult.. that is why my A1 version didn't have all the panel line painted.. and white color paint is one hell color that hard to manage or paint.. why? too much thinner (thinner paint) will need more thin layer to make perfect (means look exactly white) or it will not cover the grey surfacer well.. less thinner and thicker paint.. nozzle of the AB stuck and it can easily create thick layer of paint which look not even and.. ugly.. tricky business huh.. and without a proper lighting.. it is quite hard to check whether the paint is done properly or not.. that is why i like to paint my kit with black or dark color.. the different in between the A1 and the C1.. will tell that in the next post.. now.. enjoy the pics.. not pic..

no inner frame for the arms..

simple leg structure right..

and the pre-assembled unit.. can't post it well cause most of the parts not attach properly..

painting progress coming soon..

stay tune..

u r always taking care of the anime appearance accuracy, don’t u Seven ??? well, i think he looks great =)... the problem of panel lines... till i put my hands in kit for a slight personalization, i will know what’s the deal with that... now, bout the problem with white paint, good point !!! i will bear that in mind when i dare to paint it white (& not to paint it black, as the Rolling Stones would do... HAHAHAHAHAHA... bad joke, i know XD)

chris: well.. the accuracy of the proportion make the kit pose better.. more dynamic.. that is why i pay attention of it.. the Rolling stone? you mean dust?

chrismandesign said...

HAHAHAHA... nope, when i said "paint it black" i was talking bout the Tour of Duty series soundtrack by RS LOL... & about the proportion, i hav a RX-78-2 version Ka Gundam that looks well proportioned to me but is quite hard to posing specially in dynamic poses... anyway, with the amount of kits assembled by u, i guess u already know what u r talking bout =)

Sentinel was made into an anime? I thought it was a manga series. Model kit wise, I like the A1 better because it's waverider mode looks more of a jet fighter then the C1.

Tom: erm.. actually i don't know much about the gundam sentinel story whether it come in Manga or Anime.. my mistake.. well.. what can i say is big weapon better in MS mode.. i don't like my Zeta ver.2 carry it big cannon in the waverider mode too..
