This was my first project where I opted to stop using the stickers and make some small changes using paint markers.
Most of the time using stickers ends up in peeling and overall bad looks. So I wanted to make better looking frame details.
Most of the detail stickers on this kit are found on the inner frame. They are either in gold or silver.
Thus I got some paint markers and detailed the frame with those. Since I am not to certain about my painting skills I chose to use markers for my first try.
Another small change I liked was to change the gun’s color scheme slightly. The monotone grey just looked too boring. Once again I chose a metallic color. and changed the color of the scope. “The silver Sniper”.
I made a few small mistakes too. I broke the connectors for the axes. Not having any glue. I just kept it that way. it still connects perfectly. Sometimes my paint marker would be a little to happy and splash the parts. Luckily it was relatively easy to scratch the big mistakes away. But some parts are still a little off. luckily you can’t really see these small details well.
I did end up using some of the sticker decals. I might someday change them with waterslides. For now it will do though.
I really love this kit and it is a trophy in my display cabinet. it has it problems (like standing up and droopy arms). But those aren’t dealbreakers. The sinanju just looks awesome. Someday I will have to revisit the Sinanju and build a MG custom Sinanju (Maybe a purple Batman themed Sinanju).
