Got the torso completed for my MG Gundam Deathscythe EW kit. Tamiya spray paints arrived in the mail so I was able to test them out and get a couple batches of parts painted. I used TS-38 Gunmetal for the inner frame, TS-64 Dark Mica Blue and TS-26 Pure White for the armor, and TS-8 Italian Red and TS-34 Camel Yellow for the detail parts. Since these are all lacquer spray paints, I decided panel lining with acrylic paint and thinner would be safest on the paint job and easiest.
Not much to panel line on the torso, just the neck piece and the red cockpit part. Still haven't got the ratio of paint to thinner yet so it took a couple layers of the grey paint to stick. Simple cockpit hatch door:
Duo has no face!! Ahhhhh! ...Yeah, eyes were too small to paint.
Working on the arms and waist next. Have to wait until I get some glue to complete the legs as one of the inner frame bits is snapped (maybe it came that way? Probably not...)
So far liking the painted feel and look. Maybe I'll give it a gloss coat when it's done... Hmmm...
