My first customized gunpla


This is the first gunpla model that I customised. I hand painted the pistons and tubes with gold and red, and painted light grey on some white parts using spray cans. I then inserted a white LED light through the neck into the head of the gundam to illuminate the eyes. I also applied some water decal and panel lined the gunpla. For the katana, I painted the edge with a shiny silver colour to emphasize the sharpness of the blade. I then applied some gunmetal paint on the mace and weapons to create a slightly battle-worn and metallic appearance. In the end, I chose to apply a clear flat top coat to create a realistic surface and feel.

The twin eyes are illuminated to show a lively Barbatos. Although it is a quiet pose, the glow in its eyes conveys the atmosphere of movement to come.
