I finished the painting the white, red and light red colors over the weekend. Last night I finished lining the white parts. Interestingly there are two sets of detail parts included in this kit. The current version of the 1/1 Gundam in Odaiba has the upgraded magnetic components.
The central replacement core was masked to replicate the color scheme of the core fighter.
I performed a bit of masking to create grey backing to the shield. This is carried over red section of the shield as well.
