GM Snazzy

The first Gunpla I built upon my return to the hobby in May of 2016.  It started as a basic HG GM, no frills…and mostly stayed that way until I added a custom paint job to it. 

 

Why did I call it the “GM Snazzy”?

 

Simple.

 

I couldn’t think of a better name. 

 

Ahem…

 

Anyway, the paint job on this was done with a combination of Testors spray cans and hand-brushed touch-ups with Testors and Model Masters paints.  I had some issues with the purple paint, unfortunately. On the shoulders and shield, it came out rather chunky. Don’t know if it was humidity or just a bad batch of paint or what, but I wound up having to sand the parts down (mostly) smooth and repaint by hand.  In the end it turned out pretty well.

 

Don’t really have a lot to say about this one. It was more or less just an opening salvo on my Gunpla journey.
