    HG Gerbera Tetra Color Scheme - Opinions Needed

    I'm in the process of trying to decide the Color Scheme of my HG Gerbera Tetra and I'm having a bit of trouble making a decision. So far I worked it down to either Vallejo Sunset Red or Crimson but I'm also thinking about a Brilliant Red I found in the local gaming store. Attached is the Vallejo paints used (undercoated with Tamiya Fine White Primer) on some scrap parts of my "old" Gerbera Tetra kit. Any comments or suggestions on alternatives would be GREATLY Appreciated!!!

    I like the sunset red as it's sorta more like the original colour. Are you going to edge blend at all? or just do solid with panel lining? I can almost picture some small parts being done in brilliant red to break up the Gerbera a bit. It's such a large area to be all the one colour.

    Hi Mark thanks for the reply. I'm probably just going to do solid with Panel Lining since to be honest I have never tried and have not seen a tutorial on Edge Blending. Since I wrote the post I've also found that Vallejo also makes a Metallic Red in their Mecha Color Line that I want to look at as another alternative but for now I'm leaning towards the sunset red.
