On the MG Turn A I decided to deal with the seams on the head of this kit. I felt the seam was pretty awful. So I had to take the head apart again to deal with a few things before I sealed it up.
I take off the mustache of the Turn-A Gundam’s face. I am just pushing down on it from the thickest part in the center of it. I do not want to break it. This just my way of being careful about it.
(knife is just pointing to wear I pushing on it with my finger.)
I have to remove these parts from the top of the head or else I will have a harder time separating the two pieces of the head.
I used my fingernail as a wedge to actually spilit these two pieces. I didn’t want to use the knife to do it. I want to limit how much repair work I have to do.
Then slide the Yellow part that the eyes and goatee attached to then just take those off too.
I used a Gold gundam marker on the back of the eyes. It is what I painted the eyes on the SD EX Standard Aile Strike with.
Then all those parts go back together again. The Gold changes the way eyes look when light hits them. It does come with a sticker that creates a silver backing to them. But I didn’t like it.
I applied testors model glue to both sides of the head and then hold them together really tight til I see glue popping out a bit. I let that dry for a bit.
I sand the piece til I do not see the seam anymore and it is pretty smooth.
I like the white color on this kit. I really will not have to mask anything on this head so far. But it is all ready to be glosscoted and panel lined.
More MG Turn A work to come.
