    Thank you very much gdx9902. That answered a lot of my questions and I'm sure the rest will be answered in those links you posted. I am on a bit of a budget so I can't spend a lot of money. So I'll have to stick with the rather cheaper stuff for now.

    Not all good airbrushes are expensive. I got an neo by iwata dual action gravity fed for under $75. So far so good, although I haven't done much real painting, mostly just practicing and figuring out all the little intricacies of various techniques. I plan to use on more than just Gunpla, eventually.

    Yeah I'm thinking that I'll use some spray paint to practice with. I'm thinking a custom RX-0 Banshee.

    You can, but you will need to be careful when removing the pieces and your nub marks will be the color of the original plastic and will need touch ups.

    If I'm going to use red and gold acrylic marker

    1436.jpg
    For MG Gundam Banshee's psycho frame

    1438.jpg
    For MG Gundam Unicorn's psycho frame


    is this the right decision or it'll create some funky effect? Since I can't paint right now

    Do you know what type of paint is in the markers? It shouldn't be a problem, I've used paint markers for kits before. Just test it out on a bit of scrap runner first.

    The problem is that I threw away the frames, I could try paint them and erase them using alcohol. I saw the finished banshee and the gold parts are better the oob frames





    This is what I'm aiming for. But the freckles in the frames gave me second thoughts

    I haven't used paint yet, nor did I while I was assembling my D-Scythe.

    What are Gundam-Markers good for anyway? is that considered as an equal substitute for using your methods?
    Anime is for kids

    Spraying on the tree..

    I have seen several videos on youtube where people just prime and paint their parts right on the parts tree. ?!
    But I can't help but to wonder: if you paint the parts of the tree, then you cut them, you have exposed unpainted areas and may even have to sand fill ect.

    I don't understand this method and I am wondering if someone can chime in. I think it makes more sense to cut the part off the tree and prime and paint ect..


    In regards to the gundam marker, from what I have gathered is that they are just paint markers with a fine tip designed to panel line. Not sure of the paint composition but it would like to know. The same effect can be achieved with a fine brush. Both methods require patience. correct me if I am wrong.
