[WIP] Project Gundam Thrones Part 2

Update. Been working on Throne Drei for a couple of days.
Photo of past completed kit. Quite a number of mistakes by the noob-me of the past, overspray paint, did not fill up holes, crooked panel lines...
Past completed Throne Drei
Ok, so similar modifications done to Drei. Crooked panel lines filled up and sanded smooth. Backpack also modded for easy removal for painting.
After proportion mods

After sanding smooth puttied area, strip paint off the kit. Since the kit was painted with acrylic paint, I used window cleaner to strip the paint off. I believe the active ingredient is ammonia, works like a charm with no harm to the bare plastic.
Paint stripping in progress....
Priming to check for errors.. Of course there will be errors, did not expect to pass with one shot of primer.
Need to re-putty and re-sand some parts
Zwei primed as well, some errors spotted
2nd round of primer after correcting.
Still thinking on how to work on Throne Eins cannon...
Thanks for looking!!
