Beginning of a long road

Now with the Val-Walo testing done with I started to jump head first into the two Sinanju builds and man did I not know what I was getting into when I bought two of these.

As I was building this I really started to understand all the years of praise I have been hearing about this kit, it’s super detailed inside and out, has a bunch of accessories, and it’s even bigger than I anticipated.

The only unforeseen down sides were that it did have some seamlines, some of the articulation in the frame was cut down by the armor, and this thing is also somewhat back heavy.

One other unforeseen thing that I should have expected was just the amount of pieces this model has. It has probably more pieces than any other Master Grade I have ever built, and considering I plan to do two of them back to back the ordeal started to lessen my motivation slowing the build down.

Eventually though I finished with the snap fit and filled in the fuel tank seams.

Once washing and drying were done I started on the gray pieces priming and painting a section of them with plamo color gloss black. Considering there was so many pieces I had to break them up into sections. So I took this opportunity and decided to paint them in different shades and colors. Started off with Alclad 2 Jet Exhaust but ran into a problem, it was way too dark. To rectify this I quickly sprayed them with a light coat of chrome then a light coat of jet exhaust.

The two spoons to the left are Alclad Jet exhaust compared to Alclad Steel on the right.

Afterwards I just went ahead and painted the rest in Alclad steel.

Still have a lot of inner frame and weapon parts to go.
