    Finally I have a new project on my work bench, not a pred this time, but Narin's Vile Guyver, a very nice kit and soon to be companion to the Failed Guyver kit I painted about 10 years ago. After some gap filling, sanding, priming, sanding, priming etc., I have started on the actual paint job. Since I started about a week ago, it's been going quite quickly. The pics give a general impression of the steps I took, but in reality it's been numerous steps back and forth, especially with the dark blue (prussian blue) and the white, to get a pattern that I was content with. The feeling I was going for for the 'skin' colour was something between electric sparks and the pattern created by light breaking underwater. Still some work to do, but I think it's coming along nicely. Hope you like it.

    Between these two pics, there's a lot of going back and forth with blue and white, to create the 'skin' pattern.

    I heard lots of bad things about this kit having way too many air bubbles. But yours looks great! Well done and keep it up.

    My kit didn't have an issue with air bubbles, just a few small ones. The gaps between the arms and the body were a bit of work though; they were quite wide and in full view, so they had to be perfectly filled, sanded, etc. Also the legs weren't perfectly alligned when I'd glued them, so the back leg hovered in mid air and I had to sculpt an elevation on the base, for the foot to touch the ground. Probably could have been avoided if I'd paid better attention.
