Sailor Moon Makoto School uniform Garage kit by Pyramidcat Sailor Moon Makoto School uniform Garage kit by Pyramidcat
This is a resin garage kit that I assembled and painted. Everything is hand painted with Vallejo model color paints (mostly everything) and duo aqua paints (hair and part of the skirt/collar, small part of the eyes).

I added a few extra hair strands

I have not decided what to do for the base yet, as I have the others in the set and would like them all to match, so I just left it blank for now.

You can see the WIP on my blog here [link]

I loooove the way you shaded the skirt!

Shading in general is grade A it's like she stepped right out of a manga cover or something. :meow:

Awesome and just lovely. I think I saw it on some other site earlier with how you did it. Makoto is my fave and I've always loved her uniform ('cause it's hers and different) so you really did her justice. :)

Makoto looks wonderful, I really like the green colour of her skirt and how you've painted the different shadings. Her skintone looks also very nice and fits her perfectly. And interesting WIP as always ^^

This came out quite well honestly. I used to try and paint old model kits of cars and such, but I was never that great with it. Very nicely done for being hand painted, some of it I thought had been airbrushed.

I have two resin model kits under my bed. Eternal Sailor Moon and Chibi Usa. Due to moving and last year's high humidity factor I haven't had much time to put them together. They're both painted just not assembled.

I'm having a hard time with gluing them. I've tried model glue-the kind you use on plastic model kits,I've tried liquid cement and I've tried super glue and nothing wants to hold anything in place. I followed instructions before painting them and washed them in hot soap and water then painted and tried gluing them but nothing wants to stay put. Any ideas?

O wow, sorry to hear that. Actually I had a lot of problems when I was gluing my first model. I used the plastic model glue also, thinking resin=plastic, but the resin is too heavy and won’t hold it.

Cyanoacrylate “CA” is super glue, but there are different types. Years ago I used to get my glue from a hobby store and they had CA glue in thin, medium, thick consistencies. I would use either the medium or thick and that glue was really really strong.

Now I just use Blue Gorilla Glue shown here. [link]
If you are in USA its available at stores like Home depot, pharmacies and supermarkets. It’s a little bit weaker than the hobby CA glue I used to use, but still works great.

But you said you are already using “super glue” so here are some tips for using it.
1. Apply only a small amount of glue and only to one side of the parts you are joining.(the glue should not ooze out of the parts when you press them together)
2. Press the parts together and do not move them for 30secends.
3. If you apply too much glue, or move the parts too much, the glue will not catch.
4. If there is already dried glue on the parts, remove that first with a hobby knife or sand paper. You want to have a resin-to-resin bond to ensure best adhesion.

The Super Glue I tried came in a clear bottle with a red cap that I bought in WAL-MART. With moving and tossing out some stuff, me thinks somewhere along the line someone helping me threw out my stash of sand paper that I was using in College Pottery thinking it was of no more use.

I always bought sand paper in bulk from the Hardware Store so I would always have enough to last the semester. But I can't find it so it was either thrown out or someone helped themselves.

A lot of times my supplies get "misplaced" also lol. Was this this the glue you were using? [link] it seems that it would work fine, although I saw it comes in medium and thin consistency, I would think the thicker glues would be better.

You can try pinning the parts also. [link] Ideally it is done before the painting stage, but you can do it after. Sometimes on kits, there are little indentations on both sides of the parts, so if you drill there and place a pin, the parts will match up perfectly and be held in place by the glue and the pins.

Yeah the first link to the glue is the glue I WAS using but a friend of my dad's runs a hobby shop that I haven't been to in some time suggested using Model Glue for plastic models. Never thought of using pins then again my kits didn't come with pins.

I'm gonna try tracking down some pins for my resin kits.

Lol I’ve gotten some bad advice from US hobby stores before. I was having a really hard time getting the paint to stick at first. It would just peel off! So I showed a Sailor Saturn leg part to the owner, and he was said of course the paint will not stick, the part is too smooth, you have to really roughen up the part with sand paper in order for the paint to stick. Seriously?? lol Better advice would have been that I needed to wash the kit, apply primer and top coat sealer, NOT to destroy all the intricate details of the kit >_<

These types of kits do not come with pins, so I use 16 gauge wire and cut it to the length I want. Metal paper clips are also good to use. For the drill, you can use a hand drill or an electric one like a dremel. For drill bit size, 1/16 would work with the 16 gauge pins, but it’s a little roomy. 3/64 will give a more prefect fit, but you have to apply a little bit of pressure for the pin to fit, since it’s such a tight fit.

i like the name Lita

:iconpyramidcat:
Pyramidcat Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012   Artisan Crafter
I could not understand why the dubbing company chose Lita for her name since it seemed so off from Makoto. I would think something like Maria would have been more similar. Interestingly according to some sources, the name Lita has a Spanish origin meaning "manly" So I guess that was their angle, since she has the most "physical strength" of the five girls.
