Nicely done. Did you have any trouble with the mod? I did this to a few GM Commands I was working on a few years back and I had a fair bit of trouble getting the surface smooth again...


Actually, i didn't bother to smooth the surface. I have a "scriber", that i carved from blunt hobby knife blade. It came out too crude for actual scribing, but is OK for cutting something off. Basically, i "scribed" around those magazines until i was through plastic. Then i cut out piece of thin pla-plate and glued it to cover the hole. That's the grey (in reality painted aluminium) square in the inner bottom part of the shield.

I'm more interested in exactly how you've weathered your GINN.


On this one i kept weathering to the minimum. I used powder of dark brown pastel and charcoal pencil. And since model was painted with matt enamels, powder stuck so good, that i had to use rubber to remove it from unwanted places. I believe, in some photos you can see sharper edges where i tried to rub pastels off. Back then i had no concept of using them in wet form...
