HGUC 1/144 GM Quel EO Custom WIP 4

Updates! If you saw the WIP 3 of my GM Quel, I have primed my kit with Mr Surfacer 1200 and sprayed Tamiya Acrylic colour on it. And then, bad things happend!

Sticky Paint Coat

I’m not sure if anyone else encounter this but it happens on me. I shared this picture in BPG Facebook group. Apparently the paint still remain sticky after 1 week. I put them into a zip lock bag and this happend.

Who played Katamari Damacy with my GM Quel parts… T_____T

As I removed them from the ball, it has nice battle damage all over it.

What’s the cause for this? I’m not too sure but I suspect Tamiya Acrylic colour (thinned with X-20A) doidn’t stick well on Mr Surfacer (thinned with Mr Leveling Thinner). Please let me know if this happened to you, or the cause is something else.

The Corporate Color China Toy

Since the paint job is damaged so might as well fix all the parts and see how it looks like.

Ok it looks horrible. Su (my GF) said: “This looks like corporate color theme china toy with melting paint job”. Which I agree wholeheartedly.

What next? Strip the Paints!

I made a tutorial post of how to remove paints for Gunpla in 5 minutes, which many people skeptic whenever I propose it. I’ll demo it with this GM! XD
