i kinda prefer black primer. i prefer darker color
schemes (bright color schemes look dinky on gundams)
and the white kinda gets spotty.

_really shameless plugs_ in the name of citadel paint.

citadel black primer, hand painted 'regal blue'.

gunze-sangyo 'german gray' undercoat (perfect
substitute for black primer, which was out of stock
for several months on end, damn) and hand painted
'shadow gray'.

i hereby swear never to handpaint another gundam
again...the mg fazz was a nightmare...

citadel black primer, hand painted 'regal blue', with
'shining gold' flame motif. the beam shield was
undercoated with 'mithril silver', and dosed with
generous amounts of 'sky blue' ink wash, and 'dark
blue' ink wash. same for the fazz mega beam saber. :P

and the fresh zaku that i submitted to was
done with black primer, and 'dark angels green' spray.

citadel paint is kewl! buy yours today!

uh...'nuff outta me.
