MODIFICATION TYPE: custom paint job, custom decals, color separation
KIT USED: HG 1/144 Gundam Barbatos Lupus

Special thanks to Tatsu Hobby for providing this kit!

I wanted to make it more like a real grade model rather than HG, just because I am a big fan of the RG line! I used gold gundam marker for the yellow parts and hoses to separate the colors in more realistic way. Trimmed the V-fin to make it look sharper and top coated the whole kit with semi gloss finish to pull out some shininess. 

I also used some scrap decals from Real Grade model kits.

I will definitely be doing the same for HG Gundam Barbatos and other IBO kits!

You can buy this kit at TATSU HOBBY

Overall, the kit looks nice even without the decals. The downside that I found on this kit is the big gap or seam-line on its arm that I had to cut some pegs to make them fit perfectly together.

The shoulders keeps popping out from its peg when trying to pose the kit!

The kits comes with a sheet of foil stickers for the eyes, knees, legs, back feet and side skirts.
