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?

|What have I gotten myself into? 22 separate runners of parts.|
