I have a lot of experience with painting models, and weathering, so it was a no brainer on my end, but even if you've never painted a model in your life, this would be a good place to start...you will need only the essentials...a couple of paint brushes, and some simple colors...black, silver, gray, and maybe a rust/brown. I use acrylics...that's my personal choice. There are TONS of tips and tricks on the boards here, and still more on various modeling sites around the interwebs.
I painted just the skeleton of my DMK...I left the red and blue bits alone except for some minor scuffing and weathering...trust me...it brings a lot more out of the kit...again...just my opinion on the matter.
Also, my apologies for not getting back to you sooner when you posed a question a couple pages back...if you need any advice along the way, just shoot me a PM. Without a doubt, there are other painters here that would probably put my feeble skills to shame, but I am not completely inept with a paint brush.
thanks for the tips man what was the most difficult part on this kit?

For me the hardest part was not playing with it...you know marching him across my desk making laser sounds lol...seriously though the little bits like his windows and mirrors were probably the toughest parts...you just gotta go slow, and make sure you test fit as you go.

For me, I think the biggest problem I had with it was the time I put into it. I only say that because I had put the kit together to make sure that everything fit together right, found any loose/overly tight pieces, fixed the problems with them, then took it apart again to paint it. The paint chipping you see on mine took about 8 hours total alone. So it took me just as long to detail it as it took painting all the base colors.

To be fair, the kit looks amazing, but it's a complete pain in the ass to deal with. Loose and floppy out of the box, with numerous small and fragile parts that don't fit right and need to be trimmed/modified.

Yeah but the result is something more beautiful or detailed than any Gundam! Admittedly some people seem to have had more problems than I did. There seem to be more QC problems than straight-up design problems.

Oh, there are plenty of straight-up design problems as well.

For example, the kneepads don't fit on right out of the box because there's a slot that's molded far too narrow. I had to carve the shit out of them to make them fit tightly.

And that weird gap in between his eyes and his forehead? Because there's chunks of plastic that prevent the face from clipping on straight.

I consider those QC problems since they are different on every kit. For example, my kneepads fit in fine. The face gap I believe is on everyone's though.
