Before I get to the gunpla portion of this post, I’d like to take time to say I’m glad that my fellow builders in Japan are safe and sound and that my thoughts go out to everyone that has been impacted by the earthquake. The Gundam Australia forum has taken up a donation fund to help out people in need and if you’re so inclined, definitely stop by and give a little.
Disco. As you can see, everything that will be visible has been chromed over, save for the waist, hands and upper arms. The tops of the shoulders and the plated parts on the thighs will be metallic green though some of the gold will still be visible for that proper psychoframe look.
I’ll also be leaving some of the vents gold since they’re the good gold, and the parts that I’m planning on coloring blue will have the candy method applied to them (black base -> alclad ii -> clear blue). It’ll be a simple scheme, but I’m positive I can pull it off well. The dragoons will be the true labor of love on this suit, I’ve got grand plans for them.
