HG Hyaku-Shiki eyecatch picture Gundam


MSN-00100 Hyakushiki HGUC (Revive), 1/144 scaled plastic model was painted in a runner state before assembly using the Gundam Marker Gold and the Gundam Marker Airbrush system, and then assembled.

I think that the finish is satisfied enough even though don’t have to paint separately for parts each by each.

I have not use an airbrush, how does the gundam marker airbrush system performed?

How the appearance of Hyaku-shiki which is painted with gold?


Thus, this article introduce the kit of Hyaku-shiki and performance of the air brush system, how does Hyaku-shiki appearance became nice with gold paint.

Its figure is the state of performed that painting by airbrush system with runner state and compared.  

The side area and gate area in case of runner state may difficult to painting well, so do checking a surface and paint carefully.


Before and after painting


Painting the gold runner

Painting the blue runner

I could not find a good color for Hyakushiki-blue from the lineup of the Gundam marker.

There is “Gundam blue” from the lineup, but it is too bright for Hyakushiki-Blue, so I made a color and painted it by the brush.

Made a color and do color test to use unnecessary part of runner to make sure.

What to did

Apply paint all together before cutting parts from each runners.
It’s a very simple work, all you have to do is paint each runner state in advance, and then assemble it in the same way as normal assembling.

Picture shows below is all of runner state in the box before paint.

The parts are separated from the runner after painting, some of the gates will be unpainted and row material can be seen. Most recent Gunpla has been considered “under-gate” design or considering the position of the gate that are hidden after assembly. so however some of the gates are exposed.




Once the paint is dry, it’s time to assemble.

It is not mandatory but if possible, better to repair the gate traces where row material is exposed with the Gundam marker and remaining paint.

When you made original color by mixed paint, Better to keep some amount of paint because sometime need to use for repair afer peinting work.


This picture show that the gate trace on arm are repaired with the gundam marker during assembling work.

This is the picure that Parts Cutting & Assy-Arm painted on the gate

Not so difficult to repair partly if use the Gundam marker


Assembly completed

This is the state that without partial painting additionally.

I think that original performance of this kit is great.

At this time I did not paint partially an areas where is better to paint separately as it is like a original, but Hyaku-shiki can be satisfied as you can see the pictures, so I think that this kit is great to assemble both as with or without painting.

I would say that this kit is HG (High grade kit) but great enough.


I am introducing the another plastic model kits as well as the following link so I would appreciate if you have interesting and see about that.
