I tried researching for the paints I need for my Shin Musha Gundam Project and I found the colors I need, the only downfall was it was expensive at handyman. I'll just check with a hardware store near our place before I go back to Puerto Galera and back to work hahaha...

Matx, thanks for the tips man...

Since the quality if the plastic is essential, getting original is still always better.  Bootleg kits are made of very low quality plastic, are often brittle, and damage easily, not to mention the alignment of connective parts are often an issue.

haha naimagine ko na haha thanks

pag ipunan ko to hahaha

I have an extra early Unicorn verKa, still unbuilt.  I'm considering selling it.

DC23 won the Expert Category.  Ecapz with his BumbleBee Ball won the Pro Open, and will be the one representing the Philippines at HongKong.

Any advice on how I can make the detailed lines. I'm using the Gundam marker but its always too thick and messes up the detailing. Any suggestion on what to do?

Two things:  You can use a 0.1/0.2/0.3 technical pen instead and/or make the lines deeper (you'll need a scriber) and/or the intermediate method of wash panel lining.

Personally, I've stopped using Gundam Markers for panel lining since the nibs dull and dry out fast.

Cool, thanks man... By the way, how do you remove marks of the gundam marker or should I say, my errors in panel lining hehehe...

I use cotton buds moistened with water (or, if painted with acrylic, moistened with enamel thinner).  That should remove the excesses, at least in my case.

Any harm on using acetone?

I haven't tried acetone, but, afaik acetone is a very strong solvent that can melt certain plastics (specifically polystyrene, which is what kit armor is made of) and can definitely melt acrylic paint.  You'll be safer with lighter fluid (most people use it for wash as an alternative to enamel thinner).
