One thing I will only rarely complain about with Bandai kits.
Looks VERY well detailed for that size

Bandai's recent kits are VERY hard to top for engineering

Just have to enjoy good engineering and attention to detail. I only have a big Yamato so far from the series but the detail and parts engineering like you see here on this kit is impressive.

That molding requires some seriously articulated mold sections .
Most Impressive !

... and they do it OVER and OVER and OVER with those molds ...

So I might do this like the last one : Tamiya rattle-can primer then the brass base-coat -- then colors ... OR , maybe Stynylrez primer in " metal " which is silver , then the color-coats after that .... we'll see

LOL -- I just " discovered " these kits the other day when I was vacuuming under one of the work-benches that has a pile of kits backed up to it .
Totally forgot about them .
They're definitely the most modeling you'll get for the money !

Liking those colors! How did you get such nice coverage on the back sides of some of those features with a ratle can no less?

Not rattle-can .
The primer is Stynylrez in " metal " ( silver )
I'm exploring some crazy chit right now with these Auto-Air Colors . - It's all airbrush .
....some of them have no binder ,, just finding this out !! .
I went to their website but they don't wanna tell you much .
Anyways -- these " paints " ( actually colors ) are very much what I want from transparent coatings . BUT , It would be nice if the manufacturer would tell you what the F it is .
