MGIJ WIP 11 - Head

Write up is on the individual photos on the Picasa gallery page. Easiest way for me. To upload and to write. Blogger is still a bit inefficient in my opinion.

Sorry formatting is a bit sloppy.  I'll do better next time!

Here are my notes from the Picasa page.

1. I decided to use my trusty mirror tape for the lense work. took a bit of cutting and shaping but i eventually got it the way i wanted.

3.i originally tried to paint the tape but it caused it to loose its adhesiveness so i just decided to paint clear green on the lens instead. the stickers that come with the kit are opaque sky blue. unacceptable.

4. little bit of lining work. ive decided to make a dedicated sumi-ire paint jar... which basically means i've pre-made dilluted black enamel paint specially for panel lining purposes. hopefully this will make the process a bit easier for me.

5. painted titanium gold

6. i also had to paint the inside edges of the helmet black so that no pink shows through. had to do this with the sinanju as well.

7.hand painted flat aluminum. you'll barely be able to see this when the head is assembled but i had to paint it on principle. i was hoping for a bit more POP but i'm not sure what i have that will do the job.
