MS-16 Zepar Berserker by Mr. Uncle
From the modeler…
My Gundam is MS-16 Zepar Berserker, the 16th gundam frame from calamity war. The name “Zepar” was from the 72 demons of Solomon, the concept of this gundam was based on the appearance of Zepar; a soldier wearing red clothes and armor. The Berserker in “Zepar Berserker” was from the norse warrios which are mad warriors or uncontrollable warriors, which means the meaning behind its name is a berserker knight weilding a dual sword killing its enemies. The pilot of this mobile suit is a man who only want is war and only promotes war between to factions. Most of the armors of Zepar Berserker are scratch built from the head unit armor, chest armor, shoulder armor, side & front skirt, backpack unit and the weapon (dual sword). Mostly the gimmicks of my kit are the pistons in the waist which is functional, another piston in the knee behind the leg unit armor and the opening of the cockpit hatch (ofcourse so the pilot can enter lol) , another modification is the ankle thruster and the thruster behind the leg (btw i used alternative materials for thrusters). For the Backpack Unit it consist of 2 thrusters and 2 boosters (with small thrusters @ both end).
For the paints , I used Tamiya Putty (basic type) for my primer through brushing so I can achieve the rugged metal surface look, I decant the Bosny Black for my base color and also a decant of metallic chrome (i forgot the brand name of this paint) for my 1st coat, for my 2nd coat I used Tamiya Clear Red; applied into 2-4 layers to achieve what I want and lastly I mixed Clear Red and Bosny Black for my shading and then I applied Flat top coat for the finishing coat. I used airbrush for all of the painting works except for the Tamiya Gold Leaf that I used for detailing. I used masking in some black parts before applying the metallic chrome and clear red.
