MG Hi-Nu ver KA (Webby)

Its good to see the variety that can be acheived with the same kit, some paints and hard work.

My target was to use aftermarket detail parts and pay tribute to a familiar character from my childhood, who also carried a very large weapon.

So we Started with the Bandai Hi-v (Hi-Nu)  Gundam Ver. Ka and C hobby detail set.

And my ‘muse’ was the original (and best) Megatron from the original series.

So what we got was the original Hi Nu

 

Transformed into ‘Hi Nu Tron’

MG Hi-Nu ver KA (Brian)

After almost four months, I’ve finally finished this kit. Usually I only work around 2hrs/week, sometimes longer depending on my wife’s mood. I’ve done a few touch up to add details to the kit, although they were mostly too minor to see. I also went conservative with the colours I used. I mainly used four colours for the armour: light, medium and dark gray, and gunmetal black. The gunmetal is not really obvious and looks like plain black, but with closer inspection in person you will see that it is slightly lighter. I added small accents of orange as well.

I didn’t paint the white parts, just applied decals then top coat.

I used magnesium and dur aluminium colours for the frame and the back of the shield.

I also used metallic decals together with the kit’s water slide decals.

I really like how the metallic mesh compliments the surrounding bright orange.

I applied aurora film on the fin funnels, not very visible on bright background though.

Then the stand is painted with three different shades of gold to be lighter on the one end.

MG Hi-nu ver KA (Group Build)

Our very first group-build, for this we’ll be building the Master Grade Hi-nu ver KA.

This kit mostly got good reviews online. And when I look closer at the runners, I noticed that almost all of the armour parts has under-gates. This should lessen the need to sand each part. Also the hands are similar to Perfect Grade kits.

For the group build, this will run from 13-03-15 until 17-07-15. No particular theme here aside from building the same kit. We will try our best to update our WIP pages between these dates.

Here’s what we’re planning to do:

Brian – Change the colour scheme to black/grey/white, adding metallic colour accents. Use a combination of the original water-slide decals and SamuelDecals’. Also add additional details to the armour.

Click here to see the WIP page.

Dan – Dark version of Hi-Nu, taking inspiration from Master Gundam and RX-178 MK-II Titan.

Click here to see the WIP page.

WebbyNZ – Add details with aftermarket detail set and give it a more ‘familiar’ colour scheme.
