Nu Gundam ver.ka - 1 - Panel Spraying

I'll let the pictures do the talking.

My weapon.
Before I start a new project I disassemble the whole thing and clean it top to bottom.

Thinking of using these.  May change my mind mid way through though.  We'll see.

Before and after, frame panels

Kinda hard to see the difference but it's enough for me.  I don't want much to be stock colours

Blue parts, before

Will use this for the blue for now.  It's a good base for whatever colour I decide to go with later.  The lacquer thinning agent is unnecessary for this paint but I use it to clean my airbrush.

Gloss black turned out well

I decided to use the remainder of my Krylon hybrid black spray can.  It's always produced a rough finish like this...  I sprayed the Alclad black on it after but it didn't change the finish much.  Oh well.  Will worry about that later.  Glad that can is finally done though.  This is what happens when you experiment.


Oh well.  I just did it so I could get a better idea of the colours when the snap fit is done.  The real painting will come later.
