So here’s a follow-up post about which MG ReZEL I should go for. I’ve ran a couple of color test and have emailed Gundam Guy about the “replacement” parts for the beam rifle.
First off, the results from my attempt to paint clear green parts with clear red. The sample on the far left is just layers after layers of clear red until I can’t see any of the green- unfortunately, this will make the parts too dark as you can see. The middle vertical sample is red paint over mekki silver which yielded a better result… but then the parts aren’t clear anymore xD. The upper right sample is simply how clear red paint on clear green parts will look- kinda looks like blood doesn’t it? Anyway, I’m not satisfied with any of the results so painting the green orbs is a no-go.
yeaaaa… doesn’t look even close to the actual parts!
Circled are all the parts needed for the ReZEL’s beam rifle and the clear red parts. Here’s the breakdown:
Runner H (beam rifle)- $15.00
Runner B (clear parts)- $13.00
F23 (the white bit)- $2.50
I was expecting this though so I wasn’t surprised at all. Just needed some confirmation ^^;. Yes, $30 for a MG beam rifle pretty much.
This tiny v-fin runner that I ordered for my MG Zeta 2.0 years ago already cost me $6 from HLJ but it’ll probably cost like $10 now so yea… the above prices didn’t shock me.
I think I know what I want to do now…
You guys can just wait and see ^^;. I’ll be joining in on the MG ReZEL Group Build so I’ll start on this model as soon as I can get my hands on it. Thanks for all your feedback!
