Richards Bandai 1/48 Aestivalis – Part 1

Have a look at what we are doing during the lockdown. Richard is building a Bandai 1/48 Aestivalis that he purchased from Hobby City more than ten years ago. – 28 Day lockdown, the perfect time to dig out those kits from the bottom of the cupboard.

The model itself is fairly simple with no cement required thus far. However, I have used this as an example to test out and try various painting techniques as learnt by myself while working for Hobby City and by advice from Adam.

So far I have painted over the base pink colours with my own mix of enamels, as I was not so keen on the dark pink base colour of the plastic.

At this stage, I have chosen not to paint over other dark parts of the main body and have prepped for a panel line wash by spraying TS-13 over all the parts.
