Some good progress:
Painted some of the underframe today
Had to airbrush fluorescent red on to make it look consistent.... painful taping was needed though.
Gundam markered the black on for a consistent finish.
Gotta love the fluorescent Red paint. Adds excellent detail.
Some problems I'm running into: the gold paint flakes off, so I get some shiny speckles on the blue paint. It's not too significant, but enough to make me mad.
