Ahh thank you Doctor, you've answered my question perfectly.
See my reply below.

Whew =) Evidently this is a better camera (or maybe the flash was overdone last time?) and this is identical to how mine looks. I must say, I do like the color of the Ez8 .. it fits it quite well. The greyish white on the Gundam Ground, again, perfectly matches how I percieve that MS to look, and I vastly prefer that shade to the brighter white on the HG RX-78. Regardless, its all pretty much moot now =) My Ez8 is now completed, and painted in a a green camo paint scheme I'm quite pleased with. Using Tamiya Deep Green for the base (i.e. white/tan parts normally), Tamiya Khaki Drab for the formerly blue parts, and Tamya Olive Drab for the originally grey parts. Over top of the green bits, I attempted (and more or less succeeded) in brushpainting a pseudo-camo look, using the above mentioned colors, along with Tamiya flat green as well. Hell, I even painted the eyes on the head! Didn't come out as good as yours, Core, but not bad for my first go. Now all I gotta do is dirty it up a little more, and add that wear and tear look...

Tamiya's white acrylic sucks horribly and just doesn't look right. The only primer i've been able to find is a light gray (which is alright, I guess, but no help for painting white)... Maybe I should pop into that Games Workshop in WEM someday, somebody mentioned they sell good primer.......
