MG 1/100 Unicorn - BLUE ; 2010 Blue Frame vs Unicorn GB

Well, as the title, this is another GB another project......

The main focus of this build is to try out full pearl color. The armor is white/silver pearl while the psycho frame is gray covered with clear added with blue reflect pearl. Other stuff is just pretty standard detailing.

The armor pearl i would say is kinda torturing as pearl, as metallic paint, or worse, amplify any imperfection on the surface. In the end, I have gotta re-do, and use flat base color to reduce the imperfection visually.

As for the psycho frame, it's a major failure. Before assembly, when u look at them, they look absolutely fabulous: areas without hilight, exactly like inner frame grey. But where there is hi light, it turns to a soft, beautiful blue shade of light.

The problem is, after assembled, the area visible is very little, and most of them r under the outter armor's shade/shadow. Besides that, the lack of curvy surface, make the reflection even harder to see.

So in the end, basically it just looks like a unicorn with grey inner frame.... T.T
