RG Aile Strike AIF Version

Finally, project Aile Strike AIF complete. I had this kit during November if i'm not wrong and i has a lot of complain about this kit when i got it out of the box. Luckily the paint really done its job for helping me tightening the joints. I guess most of my complain solve except the palm issues.  As for now, lets check out the painting list:
-Mr.Surfacer 1000
-Mr.Surfacer 1000 white
Color Scheme:

-Blue color (mixture of character Mr.Color blue and Mr.Color metallic blue)
-Red color (Mr. Color metallic red)
-Gold color (Mr.Color gold)
-Silver color (Mr.Metal Color Silver chrome)
-Black color (Mr.Color metallic black)
-White color (Mr.Surfacer 1000 white)

The color scheme almost original except for adding silver and gold color in. The yellow color has changed to gold since there are not much yellow color part (i lazy to prepare another empty bottle for pouring out the yellow color). Most of the inner frame was painted in either silver or gold and the rest are metallic black which hide beneath the armors. The concept of the inner frame color was inspired from a post in but that guy done it on PG Aile Strike. This is the first time i'm using Mr.Surfacer 1000 white to replace the Mr.Color white as white color because i was running out of white color paint and it is definitely a bad alternative solution. There are two reason explain why it is an bad alternative solution, first is the surface is easily crack after the paint dry (maybe the chemical material is different from normal paint) and second is it come in matte surface which is not friendly for panel line. The Mr.Color character blue somehow made the entire blue color look a bit glossy and the red color is a bit over vivid again which make it look more like blood red.

Another challenge come from this kit is the markings and foil stickers. Most of it is extremely small and not easy to hold for application. As for the panel line, i bought an 0.1 unipin fine line which i mentioned before but it still too thick for this kit. I guess it enough for my frustration on my project here since i actually quite happy with the end result :) and lets check out the photos (Story of the AIF is on the bottom of this post)
