Hello again. Here's my new work finished in less than three weeks. A quick and simple build OOTB with reworked detail on the back.

I experimented with using the camera's flash to see the effect that pictures without flash can't see very clearly..

No flash:


With flash:


More photos:



Even more photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gelogundam

I used Mr. Color paints for most parts here:

Silver: Super silver

Metallic blue: super silver undercoat
first coating---> clear violet= clear blue+ clear red+ clear+ fluorescent pink
final coating---> clear blue

Black is handbrushed Tamiya enamel flat black
Back lights are handbrushed Mr. Color fluorescent red.

Comments highly welcome. Thanks for looking!

Ohhh... 8) I love it, very cool  8)...

Great job, I like all of the progress photos on your Flickr blog... :-)

I like the paint job on the Tachikoma, it really is unfortunate that Gunze Sangyo is so hard to get here in the USA.

Looks really good. Your metallic blue turned out WAY smoother than mine did!
