I was never really fond of the pink/bluish tint of the hologram strips since day one and so I decided to to paint it clear blue….
Doesn’t look too bad right? I only painted the backside so there is still the hologram effect on the front. I was thinking of painting it clear green to go with the orbs…but figured that might be too much green and not sure how well green can blend with tinted blue/pink…ya know?
ahaha… and this is where I screwed up. Can’t really help it though. The paint just cracks, breaks, and peels as I flex the shoulder cables. Not painting so many layers might help with the breakage but then the strip looks kinda… crappy. Truth be told, I never got why Exia have such cables in its design anyway so I was thinking of leaving them out a la R2 style… or just clean off the paint and leave it clear pink/bluish/purple.
This MG haven’t been a smooth ride for me this whole time ^^;. Although… I am having a blast working on the cloth…
