It has been a while since I did any work in progress (WIP) posts, but recently I have come back around to the idea for a couple reasons.
1. I have a new baby at home, which seriously reduces modeling time. I want to keep writing somewhat regularly, so WIP posts are a great way to keep pace with my slower work progress.
2. I really appreciate reading lots of other WIP blogs and want to be a contributing member of the online modeling community. WIP blogging is a great way to share some of my ideas and open myself up to other suggestions. For one of the regular blogs I read, check out Amateur Airplanes over in the “Blogs I Follow” section on the right side of my page.
My newest project is the Cylon Centurion from Moebius Models. I love the Moebius kits for their quality and attention to detail. This kit looks to be no different. The picture above is the completed shoulders and head before weathering. I used an anthracite gray metallic for the wiring and muzzle parts and chrome silver for the outer shell. I intend to dirty it up a bit when it is all finished though. I like my Cylons a little war-hardened.
I noticed more seam issues than I have seen on Moebius kits in the past, so I had to do a little filling on the front of the faceplate. Looking at the rest of the kit, many of the other seams appear fairly camouflaged. I have already gotten a good start on the legs so look for a new post soon.
If you have built this kit, let me know what worked or didn’t work for you.
