Also the kit had some optional "damaged" parts with it, and i did my own damage as well... Might not be the most accurate thing tho. Considering the real size of the thing (~20 meters tall) , materials used to make a gundam and the weapons that caused the damage are not really real
so when you buy the gundam exia ignition mode, theres an option where you can get the parts damaged?... and may i ask where you bought the paint? i would really like to try and paint mine similar to yours but it might not come out as good as the one you painted
But if you had to suggest a brand a paint for a starter what brand of paint would you recommend? what models would you recommend?.. i recently purchased a Beginning and Reborns High Grade gundam and i have 2 other high grades on the way... i tried panel lining with a fine gundam marker but it hasnt been the best i've liked so far... i've heard you can use a led pencil, or pencil, to make the lining dark and more realistic
High grade models are a nice place to start. Among those HGUC models, especially the more recent ones, has overall better quality.
For panel lining, pencils do work.
As for brand names, it's more about how you use your mediums. And what kind of paint that you prefer. Acryllic, Enamel or Lacquer? I like acryllics because they are water based. Not much poisonous fumes. But you have to work FAST. They dry in no time and you have to be confident, and relaxed for that. Learn to live with your mistakes, or turn them into strength Enamels are more forgiving but there's more chemistry involved. But that's only my experience.
Gundam markers are not very good for anything serious.
And really, any brand that you can get easily is fine. Revell, Valejo, Gunze, Tamiya, Humbrol, are all good and is a matter of preference...
