  1. Great blog man, I'm really enjoying your posts.

    I see you are also a fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion so you're more than welcome to visit my blog:


  2. for the parts that the stickers were originally supposed to be, are those areas painted with a brush or were they taped and then sprayed? This custom paint job on this valvrave is amazing . I love that haiyabusa made the original colors of the model kit even better. I'm thinking of using a pearl white coat then a pearl clear laquer to give it a more shiny look. The red im thinking of using metallic red then finish with a clear gloss coating. I was trying to find a spray close to the exoskeleton color but the closest i've found is gunmetal which is a bit darker then what is displayed here. I'd really rather go for using an airbrush as there are many more available colors but i cant afford to dish out so much for an airbrush. I have seen cheap ones for 20-30 dollars but i'm sure something will go wrong with the nozzle such as uneven coatings from the spraying nozzle.
