HG Gabthley – Part 2 Primer & Hands

Hobby Base's mechanical hands purchased for the HG Gabthley model from Zeta Gundam.

Putting primer on the HG Gabthley parts was pretty quick compared to my past projects. I finished under about an hour and a half; it’s probably the fastest I’ve ever done a model.

The armor pieces look pretty good in white but I’m quickly going to paint over them and hope to put a wet metallic finish to the completed model.

As you can see from the above picture I also primed some hands from Hobby Base’s mechanical hands for 1/144 Gundam models.

These are incredible!

They’re like Perfect Grade hands except smaller and a LOT tougher to put together since there’s small pieces involved and you’ve got to have some good dexterity in order to put it all together.

But, it’s definitely worth it considering the enormous amounts of poseability they have. How they’ll hold up handling the Gabthley’s weapons? That I’ll come to soon enough and report on that.

I’m pretty excited to have the parts all primed and ready to paint. A few pictures below of the progress.
