Hi, I just finished my very first resin kit (a recast), CW Ex-S Gundam Ver. 2

Nothing new. Just a few mods.





















Some details... Thanks to G-System's Deepstriker, after I checked the decals, they put two decal sheets, hehe! It should be one sheet only. So I used some for my Ex-S.













More posings!


















Luckily, Ex-S is not that articulated. Coz if is, I will have lots of pics, hehe!

And my finished models since April 2007...







The figure that inspired me and gave me ideas to finish Ex-S...


-Lots of modifications made from the resin and MG kit.
-Lots of parts were lost and i was forced to scratchbuild the parts using pla-plates and epoxy putty.
-Some resin parts were not used i.e. forearms, buttock wings.
-I have problems with painting white. I do hate painting whites!
-Took me almost TWO years to finish, hehe! On and off.

Paints used:

Tamiya acrylics: White, German Grey, Neutral Grey, Light green, Flat red, Red, Metallic grey for internals, Gunmetal, Smoke, Black, Yellow, Orange, and Flat Aluminum.

Model Master: White, Cobalt Blue (White+cobalt blue for lighter color)

Topcoat: Future Floor Finish Acrylic (for protection and before putting Gundam marker for panel lining, and it smells good!), and Krylon Matte finish

Ink or Panel Lines: Oil paint (black for washing internals), Gundam Marker sumiire gray for most of the panel lines.

Decals: Core-Works (these are poorly done coz i only had a recast kit), some MG Gundam MK-II v2 decals, and G-System Deepstriker decals.

Thank you for viewing!!! Again ope you enjoy guys!!! Will proceed to DS...

Those are both awesome, not to mention chunky. :D  What I want to know is, can they move at all or do they flop about under their own weight?

Thanks GlauG! Well, Ex-S is really a heavy kit, the booster packs and stabilizer make the kit back-heavy. It can't stand on its own but still posable on the stand. The DS is the same though it can stand on its own because of the propellant tank. Same articulation as the Ex-S. So far, no floppiness, except Ex-S' the right hip is a bit loose than the left. Can remedy with CA glue.

First time I looked, I didn't see the pics with the Beam Smartgun extended...  I'm surprised it can support it. :)
