I haven't finish touching up on the scratched up parts and more slight wearing, but basically I handpainted the entire kit with Gunze acrylics character red, red, custom purple mix, custom grey mix (for the face), custom dark red mix for the feet and Mr Color Metallic Gold. Other areas include Tamiya Gold and Dirty Yellow and Chrome. The weathering's done with Tamiya enamel brown wash and a very diluted Tamiya Dirty Yellow wash.

The decals mostly come from SEED series, with the large '01' on the shoulder from Hi-Nu, and the leg areas from MG Strike Freedom. No mods whatsoever, just direct conversion from the Dengeki Hobby parts.

I used metallic green and black for the eye portion, white for the face and dark grey mix for the cheeks. It was stolen from a previous Exia build, but I used it to make the F instead. Need to paint it soon.
