Gundam Astray Red Frame

Here are some shots of my first Gundam model.

It's a Gundam Astray Red Frame in 1/100 scale. The color scheme calls for a bright red for the frame but I wanted to experiment with something darker so I went for Hull Red which I then went over in Clear Red because it wasn't red enough. The result is a kind of chocolate color and I'm still not sure I like it. Most of the panel lines were done with oil paint and mineral spirits and took a very long time to clean up. Then, right at the end, I tried Copic Multi Liner inking pens which give a great result very quickly. In future I'll use those and/or my Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens which I haven't tried yet.
