Hello, I’m Motan, a modeler.
After MG GM. . .
Start creating a Thunderbolt version of the GM!
[This time just enjoy making. . . ]
In the last production of GM, I made too many modifications, so this time I wanted to make it easier and easier.
So, when I was looking inside the kit I hadn’t made yet, I found a GTB version of GM.
“Okay, let ’s go!”
This time, we will follow the rules below.
- For parts that are divided according to the design of the kit, I will not process the surface by applying a file after joining the divided surfaces with adhesive.
- I work with emphasis on sharpening the edge rather than flattening the surface of the part.
- In principle, no modification or addition of information is required.
If this rule is observed, it will be completed in about two weeks.
[My way. . . Gate processing]
If the above rules are followed, the tools used are as follows.
- Ultimate nipper (God Hand)
- Shine blade thin type fina (Fina)
- “Shokunin Katagi Suri Suri BAR for Plastic Model Tool”(Shimomura Alec )
- “Tyoukou scraper” (tungsten carbide) (Funtech)
- sponge abrasive 114X140mm # 800-1000 equivalent (3M)
First, roughly cut out the parts.
Once again, this time I will remove the burrs by passing the parts.
This is the so-called “double cut”.
Then, flatten the gate mark with the Shine Blade.
Shine blade is a metal file and can be used for a long time.
There are also two types of file eye detail, so it’s very convenient.
Next, use a Tyoukou scraper to sharpen the edges.
It ’s a lot of fun to do this.
Finally, smooth the surface with a sponge file and finish.
If you have a flat surface, use Suri Suri BAR.
It may be difficult to understand with the photos. . .
[The assembled parts. . . ]
The upper body of GTB GM. . .
First, arms and wrists are flat like this.
Perhaps later, the joints of the parts will be stepped down.
The second arm is stepped down.
Oh, I was already using Danmo here. . .
The ankle has not changed.
The joint sealing is still a kit this time.
Two consecutive cannons.
I am worried about what to do with the joint of the barrel.
Well, the seam will be better if it is stepped down, so this time I enjoy the process of making the gym easier.
See you next week.
