Testing out the gold to see how it looks with the shield before I begin painting it. I think it's going to turn out great!
Tested out some paints with the airbrush, got a good mixture of the blue and black.
Began work on the shield as my first test subject before I went into it head first, after sanding (800 and 1500 grit) and priming (Tamiya fine primer):
I think the result turned out fantastic. Can't wait to see the finished product :)
Here is a pic of the paints I used:
- Tamiya Fine Plastic Primer
- Tamiya Thinner
- Model Master Acryl Shiny Gold (1/2)
- Tamiya Black
- Tamiya Blue
