Heaven & Hell, a MG Unicorn Project - Hell Redux

Topics: 

Back in 2014 I swapped out the pyschoframes of a MG Unicorn Gundam and a MG Phenex Gundam. While I had intended to paint them, they unfortunately got set aside as different projects popped up. Now, over two years later, I've picked up the project again, starting with Hell.

Not too much to say about this project. For the most part things went well, though I was delayed a few days as I sanded and repainted a few times to get the gold coat as I could reasonably hope to obtain. There are a few pieces that I would've reworked a few more times, but I set myself up to get the kit completed by October 31st for a r/Gunpla group build. Paint wise, I used four different golds; Tamiya Titanium Gold, Tamiya Gold Leaf, Model Master Gold, and Valspar Brilliant Metal Gold. The red is Tamiya Flat Red and the frame Tamiya German Gray. To keep the gold looking gold, I didn't use any top coat on the gold pieces.

A few pieces have been hand painted, unfortunately not my best work. As a side note, I didn't realize just how many pieces on the Armed Armor DE should've also been painted gray until I was going through the instructions during final assembly. Whoops.

So please, enjoy some photos and let me know if you have any questions in the comments section below!
