View Full Version : MG Heavy Arms Chest: Orange or Red?

October 2, 2012, 9:43 PM
I'm getting ready for the last bit spray painting for the MG Heavy Arms EW. The upper chest armor is molded and is shown in the manual to be orange, the TV version is red. Vegeta8259 painted his in red, and I've seen it done really well in orange. I cannot decide!

So, answer the poll. I'll leave this up for a few days while I finish painting the rest of Heavy Arms and start on painting MG Sandrock. Thanks for your answers, guys!

I vote for the red. I think it looks a lot better.

I'd go red. Otherwise that's a hell of a lot of orange in a spot where a hell of a lot of orange doesn't look all that good.

Paint it black!

Maybe a dark orange?

Red for me as well. There is enough orange on the kit as is and some red will be a good change of pace up there on the torso.

Not just red, but brick red. I think it compliments the orange very well.

i vote red because though the orange doesn't look bad, it looks a little incomplete. like you forgot to paint it or something
