I finally mustered the courage to start building this beast, and here are the results. I did a candy painted Sazabi last year, and now I wanted to try if I can get the clear version done in a way that I would like it to appear. Bandai really did a solid job in engineering this kit, everything snaps real well, and the parts are all perfectly fit.
I only wanted to paint the inner frame, and leave all the clear parts as is. Took a while to sand all the nubs from the clear parts, but after that, painting was fast. I used Vallajo Surface Primer Gloss Black for all the inner frame parts, and then added the colors. Paints used below:
Zurc Midas Gold Zurc Fine Silver Metallic Zurc Graphite Metallic Zurc Hyper Silver Zurc Bronze Arkom Chromaflair Inca Arkom Chromaflair Helix Arkom Chromaflair Ghibli Arkom Chromaflair Phantom Arkom Chromaflair Stingray
Then I just applied all the waterslides that came with the kit. And no topcoat was applied to finish so it wouldn’t dull the clear parts. I really like this kit, and a lot of other mechanical clear kits. I will be doing more of them next year. Hope you like it!
