Mirei san; priming the figure


And then painting.

After a long time going over the figure with wet and dry sand paper, I thought I had just about got all the scratches and casting marks out....not quite. took me a few reworks, then respray, inspect......

Here is the figure at primed stage. (Vallejo Grey Primer)

Painting efforts to follow

Mirei - san; dents, dings, chips and things




....pinholes, pinholes, pinholes......

part of the casting process, no way around them, and they can be a challenge to clean up.

plus chips from travel damage too.


So broke out the putty, wet and dry sand paper, and got busy.....

Plus cleaned out some resin from between the fingers of the hands, just to add some definition.
