MG Enhanced Double Zeta Gundam Ver.Ka Build #2 Painting①

ENGLISH

Hello, I’m Duck, the administrator.
I have not been able to update the site, but I have made enough progress to be able to update the articles.

This Double Zeta is quite a difficult kit and if you take it all apart and start painting, it will be difficult when you reassemble it again, so we have divided it into three blocks: backpack, lower body and upper body. This time we are painting the backpack and lower body.

backpack

As you can see, it is a fairly large backpack with a top that opens and closes to reveal missile pots.
Beam sabres can also be attached to both sides.

The first block, the backpack, is painted.
I use Titans Plu 2, the same blue as the last Jesta I built. This colour is my favourite paint lately as it looks good when graded from black.

Painting method

The painting method used in this project is basically a gradient painting.

The colour is difficult to see, but this is how the gradient paint is applied.
The paint is diluted by a factor of 2.
The crown is removed and sprayed from the middle of the part outwards.

colour

Paint used.
Surfacer black → Titans blue 2
Surfacer Black → Baked Iron Colour (partially cold by brush application)
Surfacer Black → Copper
Surfacer Black → Silver

Beam rifles and beam sabres

The beam rifle and beam sabre are painted at the same time as the backpack.

The main colour of the beam rifle is blue, but this time it is mainly white and partially in a deeper blue, Intermediate Blue.
It is a calm blue colour that I often use.
The clear parts are not yet attached, but I want to paint them with a glossy finish, so I will attach them after the final topcoat.

The beam sabre is finished with just a white gradient paint job.

colour

Paint used.
Surfacer Black → Sail Colour → Gundam Colour MS White
Surfacer Black → Baked Iron Colour
Surfacer Black → Intermediate Blue
Surfacer Black → Copper

lower half of body

line carving

This time we tried a little line carving.

A commercially available stainless steel line engraving mould was fixed with cellophane tape to attach the lines.
At first, the line was lightly marked with a needle and then dug deeply with a line chisel to trace it. The mould was attached with care to make it symmetrical.

The lines have been masked and painted separately as they have been carved.

The line engraving guide is also quite easy to use and flexes flexibly, so once fixed with cellophane tape, it was easy to write lines that curved and adhered to the surface.

The core fighter was painted at the same time as the lower body. The accompanying 1/100 Jude was abandoned for painting.

summary

The painting of the backpack and lower body has been completed. I have not yet done the smudged decals at this stage. However, it took me 12 days to paint the backpack and lower body.
I am slowly progressing while keeping my motivation to avoid trauma.

Painting.
Overall, the colours have been chosen to be a little toned down and painted in a gradient paint scheme. The main white colour is painted with a sail colour as a base and then white is painted over it with a gradation paint. The colour has a slightly yellowish look and feel to it. It might have been interesting to use light blue as a base.

Next time I will go on to paint the upper body and do the smudging and decals.
Thank you for watching until the end.
