Jesta WIP 2
Continuing from the first WIP post, the 3 Jestas that I am building as part of the Jesta Group Build are nearly complete.
The Jesta standing without shield or beam carbine. Overall colour scheme is pretty much identical to default colours and straight build with very minor touches on colouring here and there. No modification to parts or pla plates are used (which applies to most of my models I build anyway).
The chest vents, node on shoulder, the pipes on the elbow joint and the pipes around the waist are coloured silver.
Vents on skirts and legs are also coloured silver, along with the pipes at the back of the leg joints
I have been thinking whether I should colour the shield arms or not. I may still go ahead with it as it will stay consistent with the arm and leg joints.
Here is a before and after comparison with the arms connected to the shield and the backpack.
A quick pose with 2 Jestas. Thanks to the shoulder joints they can hold the beam carbines pretty well.
Now I have mostly the touch-ups to finish, such as cleaning up rough colouring work with my Gundam Marker pens, as well as a possible use of stickers for markings.
Not much left to go. Now I just gotta be more careful with the colouring and give it a flat top coat at the end then it's done!
