GO! Fin Funnel!

Finally got the very last and most repetitive part of the HGUC Nu Gundam done. Just for kicks, I counted the unnecessary: each fin funnel assembly has 28 nubs to clean. 28 x 6 = 168 nubs cleaned. 168 x 2 (from having to cut out the parts) = 336 times my side-cutter snipped plastic… just for the fin funnels! Incredible how many times your tools actually get used during the course of a single project. Anyway, let’s look at some pics…

Double the fin funnels = double the win. Before any of you go “PUT THE OTHER SIX ON THE OTHER SIDE!”, I would like to point out that the “other” six can’t fit onto the backpack >_>. I still have some minor detailing to do and spray it with matte topcoat before I am officially done with this model.

I also fixed the head. Looks better now, no? ^^

Need your feedback now… Getting a bit bored with my “normal” style of lighting so I’ve just started playing around with some new lighting angles to bring in different effects for a new feel that I might start using in my reviews along with the “normal” setup. Just let me know what you think of each one or just one in particular that you like ^^. Starting with the photo above (First Angle)…

Second angle.

Third angle.

Different camera angle of the third lighting angle ^^

Last angle. Personally, this is my favorite new angle. Up front, it is bright and sharp while the back is near pitch black :D. Might like to start using this setup for “normal” shots too!

Same angle. I like the half darkened face… This can make for some “serious” photographs!

Like I said, the back is almost pitch black… I can’t even see the crease of the board where it folds :D. What do you all think?
