The last part for doing the shield. At last, I finally completed this cursed shield XD

Anyway, at this point in time, my only problem is the insignia. I did what Z of gunpla-inochi did on his Sinanju. It worked for him way better than mine. My hands are shaky, for all of you who doesn’t know. Not just shaky, but super shaky. It’s not stable. Specially when I’m hungry, who doesn’t anyway? I started cutting the insignia so that I can easily remove it afterwards. Then painted it. I maybe used 7 layers of gold paint? And that received its drawback. The black stickers adhered again with the gold ones. Now, I’m having difficulty in removing them. I actually teared some off and that is really saddening. If you can see the finish, if you look closely, the insignia has a lot of rough surfaces. Luckily, they’re stickers so I can still stick them into position. I have some cleaning up to do because I overdid the layers. Used my ever trustworthy Copic marker to hide those dirt.

As for the decals, only a few and not that hard, thankfully. As for the panel lining, I did some underneath, but again, Sinanju isn’t made to have many panel lines. Maybe if it was made into RG, perhaps it could have MANY.

For the beam tomahawke, it has some weird decals. Just a tiny white square. Yes, I’ve never seen such a thing in my whole decaling life (as if there’s one, haha!). Just a tip, don’t overcoat it with topcoat. You”ll have difficulty in moving the beam effect part holder up and down if you do so.
