    @ Gaijin Gunpla- Did you paint the gold parts? They look very nice! If you did paint them, how did you go about it?

    Hi Srihari Tc,

    I painted those by spraying them with some Mr. Hobby Gold.

  3. Srihari Tc says:

    Syd- Excellent work! I’ve always had problems with getting a very shiny gold.

    How did you get that blackish red color? It looks really nice.

      Hi Crimm,

      The Crimson colour was accomplished by painting semi-gloss black over the original red frame and then misting Mica Red overtop of that.

    Hey Sid! I was wondering, is it possible to put on the saya (yes,that is a word you taught me 🙂 ) curving downwards as you have, without the holder (the thing connecting the saya to the leg) being upside-down? Or will that require modding?

    Hey Syd. I have had an idea rolling around in my head for a while now and seeing how you did the Astray red frame I think it would work. I just needed some advice on it. I wonder why no one thought of it before. I call it the Nemesis Wing. How do I make fabricate something like long fingers. If you could send me an email… I’ll clarify.

    • syd says:

      I remember seeing a tutorial somewhere for fingers, but I can’t remember if it was on the internet or in one of the hobby magazines. Looks like I have to do some searching.

      • Darksayn says:

        well its not exactly fingers; more like bat wings. I have an idea for fabracating them. My problem is how to put them on an astray frame.

    Hi, I want to ask.. Did you paint the red polycaps into different color? If you did paint them, may I know how to paint the polycaps? Thx.
