you know what, every gunpla deserves a bit of shinning movement. especially for gundam from G series.

So I gathered my old gears and did a proper photo shoot.

The foil stickers are always going to be a PITA and even if you get them right over time they will eventually peel off.

If you have any more questions throw them up and we'll see if we can help. There may not be much going on here thanks to Faceache but I still keep an eye the place as do a few others.

Feel free to put some pics up in The Catapult once you've got it finished.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'll try it out, those stickers are really bugging me too much.

No primer needed. I never use it for anything I paint.

Paint the recesses first (if you want) then the raised sections. The paint won't run unless you thin it. I use it straight out of the jar and paint freehand. Brush painting and masking tape aren't the best of friends. I wouldn't get too worried about the so called guides otherwise you'll just end up getting so confused you'll never get anything done. Pick a method that you think you can do and get stuck in.

Thanks for the help. It's a bit daunting and it seems that most of the guides are a lot more involved than I plan to go (just painting the emblems).

I'd need to hand paint on primer first though, right? And I could just only paint the raised emblem parts and skip the rest, since it's essentially colour accurate, right? Does the paint tend to run into the depressions instead? Ever tried with gundam markers?

Just get yourself some 0, 00 and 000 brushes, a small sponge in a dish to wipe the drying paint off the tip every so often and away you go. I find Gunze acrylics work the best. You can use Tamiya but they tend to dry on the brush tip a bit to quick. If you decide to use enamels then you don't have to worry about the sponge as they take a lot longer to dry than acrylics.

Rome wasn't built in a day  ;)

True.

But I'm sure if I'm the Rome builder, it will be still in progress.

Thanks, that looks really good. I'll try hand painting them then.

Of course it's possible hand paint the Sleeves emblems. I always hand paint all that type of detail. Here's a few examples.
