1/100 ORB-01 Akatsuki Oowashi/Shiranui Complete

I managed to get some time off work, and whatever free time I had, I used it towards completing my 1/100 Akatsuki. I am quite satisfied with the way it turned out and it was an easy and simple build with only a few seams to take care of. I am assuming that this will be the last 1/100 Seed Destiny kit that Bandai will release and they went out with a bang. The kit is beautiful once complete although its a fingerprint magnet, so make sure you tell people to keep their hand off.

I repainted the beam rifle the way it was supposed to be since it was molded in black. Also everything that was not gold was airbrushed. Now that the Akatsuki is done I am contemplating what my next project will be. I was thinking about MG Chars Zaku II or MG Strike Freedom. I haven't built a MG in a while and there are stacks of MGs in my room ^_^


  • Really nice work. No kidding about the fingerprint magnet and definitely agree that it's a beautiful kit. 3173.dsc is sweet, very very nice :)

  • Thanks Shinohai, I tried my best to get good results. Im happy with the way it turned out. Im still debating what I should build next

  • Yep, good results you did get ;) The EX-S is a fun build though very time consuming and since I'm not a very big fan of Zaku's and the like, I'd say go for the S.Freedom or EX-S, heh.

    But it's really all up to you in the end, and whatever you choose to work with, I'm totally looking forward to enjoy =)

  • Nice work, it turned out really good. The only thing I don't like in this kit is that it has to much gold, in which case we can find our fingerprints all over it ^^, or if you clean it well and you find fingerprints in it later you can try and find out who was messing around with it ^_^

  • Hi, how did you paint on the gold chrome? The black panel lines especially, the eyes, the wings, how were able to stick paint on chrome?

    I love the pics btw, they are beautiful and it looks awesome.

  • Wll the eye piece was just regular p[lastic so no problem there. For the panels lines I had to draw over them a couple of times so that they could turn out dark.

  • Do you think if i draw over the black and white pieces a couple of times with paint or gundam markers the it will stick to the chrome like your airbrush? Did u add a clear coat layer on top to keep it from flaking off?

  • well the white and black parts were not actually colored with gold, they were molded in black and white. everything that was not covered in gold was airbrushed. yes i did add a coat of clear after the paint and then i panel lined. after i did the panel lines i added another coat of clear.

  • How did you clean up the seams and maintain the chrome finish. I am just about to start my assembly of the same kit, and I want the finish to come out like yours.
