So, I have an EX 1/1700 Archangel that I'm... not quite sure what to do with.http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10039386
The entire model is molded in flat white (did not quite expect that when I opened the box, but at 2K Yen, it was a steal).
I originally planned to do classic Archangel colors using spray for red and black and then going to town with Gundam markers for every other color and detailing.
Important Note: this is basically the first serious model I'm painting. I'm semi-worried I'll mess up, but... in the worst case, I could just use gray primer on the entire frame to start over... right?
That got me to thinking... what if I made it an entire dark metallic gunmetal color, similar to the limited edition which was coated in chrome silver. I'd spray paint the base black, I guess.
So... your thoughts? Do you think I should go for the classic Archangel paint job or for a metallic display look? I'm on the fence right now, and don't have spray cans for either color project.
Edit: Silly me. I realized that if I mess up with the former, I can do the latter as a backup plan. Crisis of faith averted!
