Gundam Astray Red Frame Color Guide

Gundam Astray Red Frame Color Guide

Yesterday I received confirmation that the 1/100 Gundam Astray Red Frame and 1/100 Gundam Astray Blue Frame that I had bought from HWJapan was shipped already, yey!

The bad news is that I had it sent via SAL so it will take about a month for it to reach me. Despite that setback, I was thinking far ahead already and decided to start with the Gundam Astray Red Frame first whenever the package arrived, so I headed on over to Hobby Search to look at the manuals. Who knows?, maybe after a week I'll decided to start with the Blue Frame first? *snicker*

I was mostly interested in the Color Guide so I could find out right away what colors I had to buy given my current inventory of paints. Aside from the color guide for the 1/100 Gundam Astray Red Frame, I decided to look also at the 1/60 Perfect Grade Gundam Astray Red Frame for comparison. Once again you'll notice that between the two model kits, their recommended color mixture will be different for the same parts.

The Prefect Grade 1/60 Gundam Astray Red Frame is selling for 18000 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 12,600 yen at HWJapan, 13,192 yen at Amiami, 18000 yen at Hobby Search and $224.95 at 3rd party sellers at Amazon

The 1/100 Non Grade Gundam Astray Red Frame is selling for 2000 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 1400 yen at HWJapan, 2000 yen at Hobby Search and $24.40 at 3rd party Amazon Sellers.
