Here is my RX-78-2 Gundam version One Year War
This kit has been collecting dust in my room for over a year before I decided to build it.
This is a very impressive model. An easy build, but the legs are a bit complicated. Panel lining can be a pain in the rear though.
I didn't like the look of the blank ink used for the panel lines so I sprayed the shoulders, arms, and skirt another coat of paint. Then used a pencil instead to give the panel lines a subtle look.
This gundam looks really nice after all the painting, panel lining, and decal application. I also tried dry brushing with gray acrylic paint to give the shield and yellow parts a darker and dirtier look.
I painted the white and the red parts. I wasn't feeling the original old rose red. I don't have yellow spray paint so I just used dry brushing to get rid of the shine. That's why the yellow looks a bit too dirty.
I'm not familiar with this gundam too. But I do know that this is the 1st and original gundam, the gran' daddy of them all. I also saw Danny Choo's model so I decided to get this one together with Mk II.
