GUNDAM 1/100 MG XXXG-00W0 WING ZERO CUSTOM

Finished it is, as Yoda would have said.

Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the results - my aim was to build the MS in "factory" colors, but still have some fun with my airbrush (hey, all of this is new to me, so I wanted to try out my new toys). Plus, from what I've seen, painted gunpla >>>>> non-painted gunpla.

The theme I had in mind, when building this model, was "angelic... but can still kick ass". Hopefully, it turned out that way :)

Gundam Wing Angelic Kickassing
This angel looks like it can kick ass...

As you can see, I kept the original colors, kicking up them a notch here and there - mainly the blue got changed to a nice metallic shade.

I've got to refine my skills as a photograph...

The other important (?) change I've made is the color of the panel lines. Black panel lines wouldn't stand out on the blue parts of the armor (at least not in a good way, IMHO), so I thought that gold would make a good choice - it adds a bit of a "majestic" look. I was contemplating using silver/aluminum instead, but IMHO that would make the MS look to "cold", if that makes any sense :)

I did use the silver panel lining somewhere else...

Actually, I think I used three (3) types of aluminum/steel/gunmetal on the guns...

Well, at least two shades - gunmetal and some sort of aluminum

I'm kinda jealous of GaiGun for his splendid work on his Shinanju's Rifle (and Bazooka)... One day, I'll get my hands on some Wave decals too...

The rifles are actually almost as tall as the MS itself... but somehow they look so right... :3~~

But when all's said and done, Gundam Wing Zero Custom is about... wings.

But again, the "default" black color for panel lining didn't quite fit the angelic theme. Even gray wasn't quite it. So I mixed some light blue I had with a darker one and got this:

Dry transfer decals look good... but they love to tear ;_;

Gundam Wing Zero Custom Angelic Wings Panel Lining Top
Originally, I thought about leaving those three bold stripes alone... but then I changed my mind - IMHO, this way it looks more alive or something :)

Gundam Wing Zero Custom Angelic Wings Panel Lining Bottom
The bottoms turned out like this, when I got too lazy and didn't want to clean up properly after panel lining... So I just shaded it all with light blue.

The arms supporting the wings allow for quite a lot of posing.

Now, I must confess something... I discovered that I, like some other bloggers, have a thing for...
