Mostly done with the launcher, but now I feel it doesn't fit with the rest of the design (too blocky). I may change the sights to something rounder, or make a new gun altogether : /

I know you can buy some special paper to do it yourself on a regular printer. I still have a sheet of AoZ decals I bought from someone here (Bawoo?).
Bandai makes AoZ decals though, that may be your safest bet.

Not sure, I hope it holds up. Im also not sure who makes custom decals anymore.

I'm wondering how the decals will react with the brush strokes? Some softener may help if you have trouble there.

So this concludes most of the progress. I have to cast a new foot, hunt down water decals, find "piping" for the  hoses I lost and lastly add a rust like wash to the kit to call it complete. Oh and I guess look for a nice wooden platform and shaft to display the piece.

Overall, I will say that I had a great time de-stressing while working on this kit. I will be purchasing an airbrush for the next kit, as I realize I am too impatient for hand-painting.

So I started hand painting and may I see its quiet frustrating haha. So many coats I have to complete and I become OCD to try an obtain the smoothest finish.






Here's the resin laser beam I purchased many years ago haha.




Also patching up the empty backside of the front skirts.

I worked a bit on the main weapon, a Stinger-like missile launcher (I'll add a missile on the front like on a RPG-7). I'm still fiddling with the proportions but the back portion of the tube will be somehow covered.

To be completely honest, Im not 100% set, but preferably a clean look, but since its hand brushed, I may incorporate weathered elements to cover up any mistakes haha.

At the moment, I'm fleshing out a Diorama between the Refined Barzam and Advanced Hazel (something about them being mono eye suits held by Titans, but never actually being in the same Manga or OVA.)

I started painting the internals with Tamiya X-12 Gold Leaf.



I love it so far. I think the Mr. Color Red #3 will definitely make the leg internals pop on the pistons.

The suit armor will be the standard Titans Mk.II color scheme.

Hand painting a MG, that's a project! I'm also planning on hand painting my current project, partly due to my compressor dying, and mostly because I crave the Kobayashi/Mak dirty laquer look (for which I think Mr Hobby paints are recommended), so I'll be following your progress!

Are you going for a clean finish or something weathered?
