MSN-06S Sinanju - Work Log 6 - Painting

Ok... gotta say this... I think I've outdone myself.

Or at least... this model has given me the opportunity to out-do myself. I painted the head last night and it looks SWEET. At least to me. I was really impressed with how it turned out but I think I'm going to change the scheme a bit to give Sinanju more of a pronounced 'face'. If anyone comes up with the same colour scheme that I have I will shocked. I'll take before and after pics so you can see the changes. I'm thinking now that I may just make forsake the decals in favour of hand painting. It's actually easier for me since I'm doing a lot of fine painting already. And that way I can stay consistent with the colours.

Also tried out an experiment on the Mono-eye lense. Painted with silver leaf and then clear green on top since I wanted the eye to show through... but the helmet sits down so low and it's hard to see anyways. I'm not going to mod the frame/armour at all so I'll think of what I can do. Maybe life silver leaf without the clear coat on top? That might make it catch the light more. I kinda like the green though.... Decisions! Also... cool feature about the mono-eye is that the direction changes automatically depending on which way you turn the head. Details like that make this kit really special.

Now here is another totally unrelated picture.
