well, you should paint your kampfer in a way that
you'll be proud of even after the contest.

myself, i'd go for drab serious pseudo-military
colors. i never follow the anime colors (what kind of
thrusters are color yellow anyway? i suggest
weathering them over with dark bronzes and dark
browns...) the kampfer blue is ok, actually. but the
traditional red-white-yellow-blue of the gundam is
definitely not.

i rather liked the rx78-g3 color scheme. two shades
of gray makes a whole lotta difference from parade
colors. eek!
