    One of My New Arrivals, GWM-5600 White!

    Stoked! I really like it alot, the white just pops!! I had to perform an immediate modd though, couldn't handle the 2 tone bezel letters, top was light grey and the bottom letters were blue, took off the bezel and completely removed the colored lettering, then precisely filled the lettering back in with dark grey enamel to match the grey stripe around the face, now I love it! Heres a few pics!



    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    Really cool

    What tools and what colour exactly did you use for the letter coloring?

    Thanks, I used Testor Enamel Model Paint #1163 Flat Grey, first I removed the bezel and took a small toothbrush and used automotive basecoat reducer, similar to laquer thinner, laquer thinner would probably do the same thing, I would wet the tooth brush and gently scrub the bezel letters only for about 10 seconds before wiping it off and doing it again as to not completely saturate the resin. Has worked well on many G's.

    That mod is AWESOME. I have one too...and Love it. How did you remove the color and how did you refill the lettering in so precisely? I may want to do the same mod :)

    What do you think of the strap? I think the white is like the green GWM and is a little wider with no texture compared to the black GWM.

    I like the strap a lot and have been thining of getting another green or white just to dye it black.
