Here is my first PG Red Frame with a stand I bought on ebay.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/321318234950?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I bought the clear version. I think it works well.

thoughts?

I was planning on doing the PG Unicorn with LEDs and expansion pack next.

the build was really fun. I went to a place called http://www.gundamplanet.com/. They have a physical store in Palisades Park, NJ.
I wanted to pick up some paint and pens. got the MG Sinanju. 13356. Been looking for a way to paint it in high gloss. I dont own a air brush. any ideas?

GundamPlanet is awesome, I purchased stuff at their online store. They are quite prompt with shipment.

Now with the Sinanju, do you want it to look like that picture you posted? or just a regular high gloss?

high gloss if possible. I have not painted the Red frame. A little scared, that I might mess it up. I was thinking of spray painting the spruces first, instead of painting individual pieces. your thoughts?

Spray painting the whole sprues kind of sucks because when you remove all the pieces you have to repaint and touch up all the cut/nub marks. That being said, it's by far the quickest way to paint a whole kit in my opinion. And I always do it to save time. I tend to turn as many of the nub marks into battle damage and weathering as possible to avoid having to match paint later on with touch ups.

Your redframe is great by the way!

Spraying the spruce is a fast way to paint. Until you come to the part where you now have to cut the pieces from the spruce, remove nubs, and paint it over. Now the shortcut slowed you down with the extra work. And it's highly likely that the previous paint coat will get compromised by that process.

I highly suggest to take the traditional route instead.
