Just wanted to go with a darker shade of the Quan[T]'s original color scheme.

My eyes are really bad so I had trouble trying to shade this guy at this scale so I just did a clean smooth finish.

I'll attempt shading on a 1/100 scale for sure though :)

Looks pretty good, the only issue I can see is that your panel lines are running. Unless you're using really smooth glossy paint to begin with you should put down a layer or two of gloss so that doesn't happen.

Other than that, everything looks nice and smooth.

I did put down a layer of gloss before using panel line accent. To be honest, they're not running; I just didn't have any precision cotton swabs on me to get in the areas to do fine clean up and I didn't want to run out and get some just for a kit that was primarily for practicing airbrushing.

I plan to pick some up soon though since I'll be starting on my next diorama and want to use panel line accent for that rather than marker like I have in the past.

Just noticed that we use similar poses for both our kits. Heh. Nice work. Congrats on your first airbrush work. Looks great!

That gold V Fin is very interesting! I kind of like it!

Thanks, sir! I just used a gold gundam paint pen to color the v-fin gold before cutting it out from the runner. After cutting it out and de-nubbing, I colored the affected parts with gold again. I did it for the Exia and the Raiser, so I figured I'd do the same for the Qan[T] as well.

I gotta say that your accuracy in airbrushing the different colors on the head and torso areas is impressive. I also like the shade of blue that you used. Definitely better than the stock blue we get out of the box.
