Nico, I can understand you ;)

Just completed first DryFit...  :)








Next step will be very long pinning and fitting process (some parts really don't want to sit in their place)...
Checking countless small parts and preparing all model for painting process

Thanks for your help!

WOW  That looks AWESOME.  I keep hoping they will make a MG out of this.  I can't afford the bit resins nor do I have the ability and time to do one justice.  Yours looks very nice so far.

Thanks Asmodeous!

I continue to work on the model. Made primer painting for all internal frame parts, inner surface of the thrusters and some other parts that will need black base color.








Model is so big that I finished 1.5 cans  :twitch:
Tomorrow I will need to purchase more primer and mat black for next black base layer

Thanks
Mark

You could prime with your air brush that what I do now. I use Createx primer.

Thanks. In case that I need to put on the model so much paint I will prefer to use color in cans.
I'm planning to paint black from the can also but next highlight layer will be airbrushed (more control).

Thanks
Mark

Not to derail too much but can you post a bit more about this createx primer (Where to get, how to use it etc)?

Thanks a lot for positive feedback!

I applied black color and prepared for next blue highlight step.


In addition I painted aluminum thrusters.


Thanks

Man Mark,  you are moving like lightening on this thing.  I am looking forward to seeing the frame all shaded.  Thrusters look great.  Nice work so far.

Thanks Man!!!
I just expecting that in two weeks I will need to do some pause in modeling, trying to finish as much as possible :)

I shaded internal frame by dark blue color. Pictures are a little brighter then in real life but details can be seen.






Next step is painting details on the internal frame, time consuming process :)
Thanks
Mark
Thanks

I personally like the Red look of this Gundam.
According to custom color? For now I have no idea what color will match this robot... All examples that I saw were in Red :)

Just paint whatever color you like!
There are no rules for your hobby. If you paint it half as well as the armor in your pics, it should look awesome!
I always want to see custom colors so I may not be the best gauge.  :-) Just so many of the same colors out there.
Some of the guys here can really make the original colors look pro and untouchable skill wise. Those are masterpieces as is,but I always like to see some custom colors too.
Just my opinion obviously. I like to look here for color ref. I posted in the concept color thread. Fichtenfoo also posted an AWESOME color choosing tool there.

Have fun.

HMMM! I will have to wait and see what you do with the detail painting.  The blue is a little to vibrant for me right now.  Maybe some brighter highlights.

Oh oh ! your are fast ! The blue is great IMO. I guess it will be less vibrant with the details and the seal coat. Trusters looks great. Tip top man !

Thanks for your good words!!! :)

Here I started to work on the details of the internal frame... A lot of details and a lot of work!
I added some white parts and first metal layer.








Next step will be parts with gold, bronze and red colors.

Thanks
Mark

AHHHHH!!!!! Now it's looking sharp. The blue is a nice contrast.  Those frames have a ton of detail and you could make yourself crazy doing it all.  Looking sharp.
