HG 1/144 G-Exes Jackedge Part 3

A beginner's kit

Continuing with the work on HG 1/144 G-Exes Jackedge after the previous posting. ^^ And looking at the simplicity of all the remaining parts, I should be able to finish all the work in this posting. ^^

Simple panel lining for all the leg parts.

Painted black for the "borders" between connecting knee and leg parts so that the lines would be very obvious when assembled.

Repetition of all the work for parts from the other leg.

Simple panel lining for all the arm and shoulder parts.

Two little sunken areas near the thumb on each hand armor part are painted gray using Gundam Marker to associate them to the hands instead of the armor.

(Left) Test fitting the painted parts to see how the completed hands would turn out when assembled.
(Right) Two little line details on the hand armors are of course panel lined.

Simple panel lining for the body parts.

Line details inside the thruster nozzles are hard to reach, but shouldn't be ignored. ^^;

Panel lined the parts using Tamiya's Panel Line Accent Color (Black).

The nozzles' exterior is panel lined using normal panel liner.

Instead of using the foil sticker pieces included, the shallow sunken bars on the front skirt armors and thrusters (?) on the rear skirt armors are painted black using normal black marker.

The front skirt armor pieces are split so that each part can move on its own.

Just simple panel lining for the rest of the waist's parts.

Simple panel lining for the weapon parts as well.

Since G-Exes Jackedge's armament list also includes beam vulcan guns, I'm assuming they are mounted on either side of the helmet, as with most other MS.
Since they are not very visible on the parts, I'll put in some effort to "create" the two vulcans. ^^

Almost effortlessly, the vulcans are done using pin vise with 0.4mm drill bit. ^^

Just simple panel lining for the rest of the head's parts.

And all is done for the detailing of HG 1/144 G-Exes Jackedge. ^^ The work is very simple and straight-forward. If not for the paint work in the previous posting, everything can be completed with just a single posting I suppose, just like the work on Gafran from the same Gunpla series. ^^

Given the paint work was just completed last night, I won't be starting the final assembly of this kit so soon. ^^ But unlike some other kits in my collection, I'm super-duper-over-the-top excited about this kit (hence the fast work ^^), so I would most probably be returning to it next month for its completion. ^^
