My RG freedom just came in yesterday so hopefully it will end up swell!


to answer your question yes the paint is metallic to give it a shinny effect

I totally will post some pics when Im done. Its been slow going since I dont exactly have an abundant amount of free time.

I have one question though. What are your guys opinions on stickers. I went on google just to see any general advice on how to put them with good precision but incidentally I keep running across people saying how they avoided stickers and usually for other methods like dry decal. My question is- should I really avoid stickers or can they still come out stunning if Im careful and patient enough? Will these stickers last or will they be flimsy when I put them on and eventually just fall off from the "harsh" of nature?

I can only talk about foil stickers, as I haven't used any other kind of decal. I only use them for the eyes. (and sometimes the camera lens.) Only one of my kits has had the sticker somewhat fall off, and that's because I messed up applying it the first time. So if you apply it well the first time and don't need to take it off to re-apply it you should be good. I wish I could help you with waterslides or dry transfers though. But I haven't used them yet.

Imo i go with paints paint around the eyes with a dark black then clear green for the eyes that way it glows dry transfers can be tricky the best are water decals but you gotta be care full that they don't stick together clear stickers are fine but i only use the MG ones cause there smaller for details i can recommend paints if you want il post what i use in the next post if you want i can take pictures in closer details so you can see.

It's completely unpainted. I did miss some nub marks on the legs because I wanted to finish it so badly. I'm planing on going back and cleaning it up and adding more panel lines some time.

Nice IJ

Can't get pictures up atm but I'm sorta on hiatus...

Have MG nu ver Ka (did an A Level project on improving it), MG 00 Raiser, 2 MG Unicorn OVA (one built, one still in box), and a half built and painted Astray Red (looks hella good so far, need to get back to airbrushing it :P).

Also have RG Aile Strike and Freedom, plus HG Seravee, and SD Wing Zero Oh and 2 super cheap gundam age things that only have moving arms.

Non gunpla but still robots I have a couple of knightmares, an eva, few other ms and a small 3D printed elephant called Jeremy.
Did a bunch of airfix stuff but a fair portion of that was as gifts to elderly relatives and friends, so I don't have many any more...

Will get some piccies up when I can though
