Started on a new and slightly ambitious project. Its going to be my first fully-painted build, inner frame and all. I’m still trying to decide if I want to keep it red, do a metallic blue, or a gloss black. I’ll probably end up doing a gloss or metallic red with a gunmetal inner frame and weapons. I’m planning on hand-painting the sleeves and trim with a gold paint and a tiny brush.
Suggestions on a brand? I’ve already got Testor’s Gold enamel and Vallejo Gold acrylic. Is Tamyia worth picking up? The main body will be done with canned spray paint for a smooth finish. An airbrush is on my “someday” list to buy.
Also, is it better to paint the inner frame after building it, or paint it before? Additionally, since its the new PS plastic, does it still need priming like the ABS did?

Finished the OZ-00MS Tallgeese. Panel lined with gray enamel and applied the included stickers and dry transfers. Let me just say, now that I know what dry transfers are and how to apply them, I'm a fan and wish all kits came with them.
