    I’m sure it’s not too different than an insignia red, I’ll have to double check. The color guide and my Translotor on my phone don’t seem to get along. It just says red parts red, gray parts green gray so I’m not 100% sure on any of it. My plan was just to wing it with most of the colors 

    It‘s a slight orange red tone.

    I wish I had more spare time. I still haven’t gotten the hands all put together or the gunpod ready for pictures yet. 
    Just noticed that red stripe looks like it had a little accident. If you wanted to fix it it could just take a quick bit of masking and some red paint, or you could do some battle damage since Hikaru gets shot down a lot

    Yeah, the decals are rather allergic to tamiya mark setter strong. :S

    Not sure if I have the right red tone to fix it or the muse to actually fix it haha

    Is that blue light/lens on the leg a decal? A sticker? or paint?

    It‘s a clear part. There is a decal for the blue on the decal sheet, but I painted it with revell clear blue.

     

    edit:

    and done :)

  4. @Big s yeah! Just look at the pics below. I think the kit is satisfying to build. Stuff just fits, sometimes a bit loose but nothing that would make one angry.

    @MechTech oh you have no idea… so many parts… I‘m not done yet. Option parts as well. Panels, hands …

     

    picture time!

    First time for me to use PLAMAX decals. They get loosened really quickly, even in cold water. And with a little mark setter they wrap around any shape.IMG_8632.jpeg.a866af5d2d3f8e73ea0c01485d2ef428.jpeg

    the red dome is done by a decal wrapped around the dome.

    the other leg and the gun pod will be taken care off tomorrow. Really a nice kit so far.

    There’s a few little details that could use a touch of paint though. The head lasers are  all white for instance, there’s really only a few other little things that need touch ups

    Thanks for the heads-up 👍

    Just make sure you got some glue, this thing has little bits that will just plop off . It’s a pretty fun build so far though 

    I have so much glue ... I plan to GUNPLA this thing. Dissolving some sprues in tamiya glue to fill gaps and then sand the thing and then only decals and panel lining :)

    The only thing to receive color will be the clear parts.

    Wow. Individual finger joints. :wub: 

    Again, this is a 1/60 scale and not 1/48, right? He looks big. ;) 

    Nope, 1/48. he stated that somewhere in the beginning.

  8. Time to airbrush the VF-171 again. I got some cheap stencils to try.

    everything is pre-shaded already. Some purple leopard pattern here and there. Let’s see how it works out.

    not too bad, I think.

    after a while, the airbrush decided I have to stop as the charge was empty. Since I got that thing, stuff goes on faster than usual :)
