    Sazabi Ver.Ka Titanium build

    My next big project or headache I'm going to repaint nearly the whole kit for a metallic look. This is going to be challenging because it uses 3 different shades of red.



    9/1/2014 update - two reds painted, it needs one more shade


    9/21/14 - 90% complete. Need decals and thrusters painted!



    Finished build

    You're in for a treat. Just a heads up, the forearm armor that opens to show thrusters is very prone to breaking. Be careful when inserting/removing the armor for painting.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll try to take my time with this one. The gouf I built literally only spent like 2 weeks to do. I'm that inpatient lol

    Holy crap! I thought I started out easy with just priming the blacks. It uses up the whole bottle of tamiya gray primer (the tall one) The imperfections started to show as I primed also.

    I wanted to do a metallic black instead of just a plain gloss black. Under bright light, you can see the sparkling silver flakes. The flakes look a lot smaller in person. As expected, I ran out of paint half way lol

    That's a pretty wild affect. Kinda reminds me of a bass boat. But still looks really good.

    Those look great. If it was me i'd go with the Diamond+smoke, the Diamond, and the one with Testors Gold.
