HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unicorn Mode

Done with this quick paint build!
Went for a dual tone color scheme, nothing too complicated other than the masking.
Mods done include neck extension, improvement to legs articulation, and replace thrusters with metal thrusters.
Paints used:
White - Off White + Blue
Brownish White - Off White + Mahogany
Grey - Black + White + Neutral Grey
Dark Blue - Cobalt Blue + Mixed Dark Gray
Silver - Starbright Duralumin

Thanks for looking!!!

[WIP] HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unicorn Mode

Took a short break from the VP Strike Freedom, already super burnt out after priming it.
Since I have this already primed kit lying around, I decided to finish painting it.
So I thought... how hard could it be painting a full white kit? WRONG!!!
Masking was a not only a nightmare, it was a nightmare within a nightmare! Well, cause I went for a dual tone color scheme, so I guess I could only blame myself..

Painted inner frame grey and masked off certain areas and paint white over.
For the white parts, mask off certain areas again and paint over other color tone. And some miscellaneous parts in silver.
Masking come off, results well worth the time spent!
Dry-fitted again before panel lining and decals to see overall effect of the color scheme.
And a duo shot with the other unicorn.
