Is that glow in the dark paint? I was wondering how glow paint would look. If it is, can I ask which brand?

I love this kit.  Did you get it from E2046?  I was just looking over mine to decide what I was going to do with it.  Yours is looking very origonal.  Bigger pics would be nice.

Hello all, larger pics as requested!

Unfortunately, I didnt take any work in progress pics as its really just a straight build from the resin kit.  All i did was just sharpen the edges with some plastic stripes as the cast didnt come out that great in some edges.  I also drilled through some of the indented parts on the shoulder armor.  I wanted to keep it as close as it is to the original version.

I bought some industrial use yellow glow-in-the-dark powder, mixed it with a bottle of clear tamiya paint and hand painted onto the two energy tanks on the back.  As for the glow in the dark body, i mixed the powder with water and washed it all over the skeleton.  Wait for a day to let it dry and then brush off the surface and leaving the rest of the powder site on the cracks/panel line/gaps.  Spray a few coat of flat topcoats all over the skeleton to seal it.  The affect actually requires me to point my desk lamp onto Neo Geo directly to let the light absorb into the powder.  Once i turn the light off, it will glow the brightest for about 20-30 sec and it will slowly dim.  If i can get my hand onto a black light tube, the effect will be more interesting.  btw, do not try to airbrush it onto your model, it jammed on mine big time and its a already a 3mm nozzle head (the largest nozzle i have)....

i actually bought mine from a well known local shop.  dont think they sell online like 2046.

cheers,
Leslie

Looks cool. Not sure about the glow gimmick, but it's a great job.
