Finished the blues, just a few touchups left before I do the whites. First pic is just straight Gundam Color Titan Blue 2. Second pic is added overhead lighting effects using grayish blue + neutral gray in equal portions and flat black underneath for shadows as well as preshading a bit. The third pic is the final custom blue I mixed up in advance with the tape removed.

Two gifts that I treasure <3

Rose gold v custom red
The rose gold was achieved by using the same red here as a base coat beneath mr metal color gold.
(Wine red + madder red + black)

Brass basecoat for the blues done. The rose gold looks good beside it 👍

I like to post wip here to serve as a track record of what I did each kit. I change it up each time and can only get better by logging the paints and how they were layered. The blue chest hasnt been done yet but i like it so far a whole lot, it was worth it to reprime from white to black.

I deviated from my original plan of using a character yellow and orange blend; instead I used a chrome silver base, a custom red wash, then a gold finish. It came out looking like a pink copper or rose gold.

I painted the satellite system panels in gray primer and brass base coat with a coat of clear yellow, then clear gold. I was going to add a metal finish of straight gold as well but that would just be redundant at this point :p I like how the brass comes out in the shadows while the gold shines out in the light. Mr color 48 clear yellow needed a TON of lacquer thinner to push through my airbrush while the GX 111 clear gold was already thinned for the most part and needed only a few drops.

Reds and inner frame done! I plan to touch up small details of the frame with golds and brass. The red is a custom blend of red madder and wine red with a pinch of black. The last photo shows steel over chrome silver on the left knee joint and just chrome silver on the right, the steel layered over the silver added more depth to the overall look. All the parts were shaded using flat black. I'm impressed the Mr. Metal Color line of paints are already prethinned in the bottle.

Second time using the airbrush, I'd really like to revisit this one.
