Real Grade 1/144 - RX-178 Gundam Mk.II - TITANS - WiP 1
First time on a Real Grade kit ive had to join and fill a seam line and this seems to be the mod that nearly all modeller who's painted this kit have done.This is done on the rear of the fore arm where 2 parts come together and leave a panel line that looks wrong and looks out of place on a RG kit.
What needs to be done is to glue the 2 pieces together then using the panel line as a guide cut off this section and sand to finish. Once done it makes it a little difficult to get all the parts assembled again but with a little easing fits perfectly and remove the nasty seem line. Once painted you only have one chance to assemble these parts again without ruining the paint work.
Plan on making this a fast build and got all the other parts sanded and ready to be primed so to be painted next weekend.
