HG Bushido’s Ahead WIP

Posted: March 3, 2010 in WIP

So! I decided to take a break from HGUCs and get started with HG Bushido’s Ahead.

What I started off was with the “fun” part

Yes…. As you may have guessed, I started by coloring the beam katanas in clear orange, this is my first time mixing paints and actually painting a model! Well, not the entire model….

The parts needed to be painted, the Reborn’s beam saber is there because i thought to color all clear orange at once, so not wasting any paint in the future.

Awaiting dry….

Really like the clear orange glow ^^

There is still paint leftover!!! But I have no use for it, have to throw it away,…….feels quite wasteful….

And now, we begin work proper!

I didn’t want to use any stickers, but i did not have orange, so i used gold as replacement. The results are quite good though!

As we can see, the polycap in the head part is reversed, normally the polycap is put the other way around…. Interesting…

Graham: My hands! Where are my hands!

Bushido: And i am Mr. Bushido! Not Graham!

Bushido: It is completed!

Marzz: Not yet, you fool, the GN drive isn’t installed yet. GN Drives are my specialty ^^ My family made them after all!(joking!)

Whew…. I took 2 hours to complete this guy, including the paintjob on the katanas. Well, another one out of the backlog!

    Ohhh… Nicely the blades.

    A reverse design for the neck allows the Ahead’s head to move in a wider articulation angle.
    If not, it’ll be a major ORZ

    The beam katanas turned out nice! And I think gold looks better than orange for Bushido’s Ahead. xD Nice choice of colours.

    That’s a lot of wasted paint there. ^^;

    the clear orange create a very nice effect 😀 I should get one of those LoL
    Have you try covering a surface with a silver color and then paint the clear orange on top of it? it’ll create a very shiny orange 😀

  8. MaftyNavue says:

    It’s really a real pity to see the unused paint go in this manner.

    Do you have any finished paint bottles that were finished for your previous job? I used those finished paint bottle to store these left over miscellaneous colors during painting and use the glass bottle from cough syrup to keep colors like black and white

    Below is the large glass bottle that I always recylcled from, best of all it comes with a stopper too.

    don’t really like Ahead because of the head part.
