So, lets start with the reason i choose this color scheme for this kit. The only thing i have in my mind was real type color of RX-78 but at the same time, i saw this (the picture below):
when i search for any FA-78-3 in real type color. The full armor concept really come into my mind from this photo (above) which telling me that this kit convert and make it look like some kind of full armor RX-78 (in fact it is a full armor version of RX-78). So, real type color, full armor, these thing mix up in my mind and when i keep on searching on it, this picture (below) came out from our best friend (Google):
Then, this was created by me. When i think back of this color scheme, it really remind me of my previous project.
This was the first one that i use the color scheme with black and red as the major color.
The second one was this Stark Jegan. Although majority of the part was painting with dark gray and light gray but this latest project consist the existing this Stark Jegan
Here is the finish product of this project.
So, maybe i should continue with the color list ( its been a while that i didn't do this :) )
-Base coat (Mr.Surfacer 1000)
-White ( Mr.Color White and Mr.Color Flat White)
-Light Gray (Mr.Color White with higher ratio mix with Mr.Color metallic black)
-Dark Gray (Mr.Color White with lower ratio mix with Mr.Color metallic black)
-Black (Mr.Color Metallic Black)
-Red (Mr.Color Metallic Red)
-Gold (Mr.Color Gold)
-Panel line (Mitsubishi Unipin)
-Yellow (without any paint)
In fact the color variation was only mix with few color which is black and white. The hardest part for the painting process was the masking process. There are only limited foil stickers applied on this kit which are those censor on the head unit and some on shoulders.
As for its review, you may refer back to the previous post.
Next project, guess which kit i still haven.t build for my ex-boss..........
