GK – Evangelion Rei Ayanami
Rei Ayanami, a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise, is the central female character and the pilot of Evangelion Unit-00. This GK build was simple and fit was excellent with a low parts count. The only difficulty faced was the masking of her plug suit to separate the colors on it. I primed the kit in white and applied the skin tones first. After some pastel shading and a matte topcoat, the ski areas were masked and a grey smoke color airbrushed as the base of her plug suit. The black regions, as well as other smaller detail areas of her suit, were hand-brushed thereafter. Similarly, her boots were airbrushed and details hand-painted. With a low parts count, this kit was easy to prep and I could get on with the painting and completion without much fuss.
