The black and gold masking has been done leaving only touch-up. I think I should do a panel wash for the touch up but I have to make sure the enamel I have is a gloss black and not a matt black.
This is how I ended up masking the front chest plate. I have painted on the black and will pull off the masking tomorrow.
I also tried out the shield masking technique using the foil stickers. I had already primed the shield…

… and given it a coat of semi-gloss black…

…then a coat of Mr. Color Gold… …then top-coat…
..then masking using foil-stickers. With easy pull tabs!

And this is what it looked like after the foil stickers were pulled away.

Not too bad, I think. However, when using some thinner to try and clean up some of the black I ended up taking more paint off than I wanted. So.. I started all over again… I will try the masking and final coat tomorrow if the weather holds.

And the bazooka is finished! I will post a couple of shots here and they will have to do until I can get the bazooka into the photo booth at work.

And I also spent another two hours on decals! Yikes. This is turning into tedium. However, I still like how it is turning out so I can’t stop now. Soon, all will be revealed!

    So masking with foil sticker works? If this is so, I can try this method too.

    And for a second there, I thought I saw that your custom color scheme was green zaku color. But that was actually the black color on shield.

    Nice job on the bazooka.

      Start far away and go lightly for the first coat. You can always come back and paint another layer. It’s easier to put on a layer of paint than it is to take one off.
