It has been a while since I last worked on building the HG Seravee Gundam. Today is a good day to continue customizing it.
Continuing with the shoulder armor customization: drew some rough lines to where I want the panel lines before starting to scribe the panel lines on the pla plate.
I ended up not finding any professional scriber. Instead, picked up some “Solder Reamer Tool” from Daiso for $2. It is actually very sharp and strong, making creating panel lines a relatively non-challenging task.
The progress of creating the panel lines. The tool has two ends, one end with a round pointy profile, the other end has a square pointy profile. The round end is great for starting the panel line. Once the rough line is scribed, I use the square end to add sharpness to the line.
Finally finished the shoulder armors. I think this is good enough or else the rest will take forever….
Next, starting to add some detail to the legs. Working on the leg is a bit tricky as it is not perfectly flat and it rocks a bit while I was trying to draw the lines on. I ended up putting a wet towel under it to help secure the leg in position before actually working on the panel lines.
Ok, here is what the panel lines look like. Still contemplating if I should add even more details to the leg or not….
Do you like adding details to your gunpla? Any tips and tricks to share?
