Kotobukiya Saber-san

Just started in building the Saber-san, although not THAT much hahah.....
So, actually I just matt coated the head only, just to make the kit look better than glossy plastic look, bleeeh !

 Above 2 pics are matt coat. Look NAIS ~ I like the texture of it, better than OOB one. 

The only parts that are gloss coated.

Will start do the rest this weekends. Jaa ~~~

Ok, to answer that question, I's using the expensive Mr. Super Clear Matt & Gloss.

thanks for the reply !

glad to hear we have the same brand of top coat spray :)

btw, did you have any major trouble getting the seam lines around saber's hair bun part smooth before spraying??

if you painted the fringe of her skirt (white plastic below the skirt armor) do you mind sharing which color u used?

sorry for many questions but i really love this model and would want only the best results for it :P

Well, normally I use art knife to remove large amount of nub marks 1st, not completely. Then using the sand file to file it off complete, & finish it with a smoother grit sandpaper before top coat it. I forgot the number for that grit 'coz I stick it on a ice cream stick heheh ~

Oh you mean goldie ? It's Artline Metallic Gold marker 0.8mm. 1st I use gundam panel liner Brown for the outline before paint the gold inside.
