I am intrigued by this guy's matte finish of the unicorn's psychoframe, but the orange isn't really doing it for me.

Since the unicorn will be my next kit, I was thinking of painting the clear pink parts with a matte vibrant red to see how it turns out (or maybe even metallic red). If it seems unsuitable for you guys, then I'll probably just stick to tamiya clear red.

thoughts?

Is that really orange ?
That implies, that guy's colorblind, isn't he ?

The orange doesn't look bad and I don't think a red would look bad either. I say go for it!

Adding some paint to the Psychoframe is definitely a nice touch, but I think this might be a bit too much paint. The color he used would definitely be a great choice for just drybrushing it though.

That looks like it's a fluorescent red to me.

I'm with you Squee. Either way, it does look sweet. I think that I'd personally prefer a metallic finish over a matte one though. Perhaps a clear red with a touch of clear yellow over Alclad Chrome.

Notes taken. I'll go with matte but metallic looks good too.
