Hee, finally we come to priming our Kochu Gundam. Before heading to my back yard I did my little set up in the room.
1800 hrs – Squeezing all the parts on my little Styrofoam box…
1815 hrs – My Kochu with a nice coat of white surfacer. Why white instead of the grey primer? Having a white base makes your colour more brilliant. Especially it comes to the colour red and yellow. I like my SDs bright and cheery ^^
Another function of surfacer is for checking the surfaces prior to our first coat of paint. Look at the nice smooth silky…(okay I am getting way out of topic..)
1830 hrs – Gloss shine red on red parts
1845 hrs- Gloss black on all the gold parts. Read somewhere that having a black base will give one a nice gold later.
1900 hrs-Sorting out the white and blue parts for spraying on another day. Thanks to my mother for helping me with the folded box haha!!! Origami can be really useful.
1915 hrs – A nice spray of tamiya gold. Probably needs another coat .
One last look at the bling before heading to dinner.
1930 hrs – Clean up.
Till next time!
