I try not to wast any time when I'm in the shop, so during my short breaks I work on other figures. This custom is just a straight up repaint. Red is such a strong color and I love working with it, so I shot this thing up with Mr. Hobby synthetic acrylic lacquer Transparent Red blended with micro silver flakes. Then added that cool fat yellow stripe on both sides by laying transparent yellow over silver. I used different types of metallic colors here, not to mention different brands. - Tamiya Gunmetal (Enamel) - Mr. Hobby Silver (Synth Lacquer) - Alsa Chrome (automotive paint) used only on the front bumper guard Three thin layers of of synth lacquer clear was applied, and last, I applied polish compound to give shine and added protection.
