Hyaku-Shiki inner frame & more

Finished the inner frame with a mix of Gun Metal and Black. Also the metallic red parts, which i painted with Clear Red mixed with a bit of Red and Brown over Chrome Silver (all Tamiya acryl colors) to get a dark red metallic effect. Can't say the color is sticking too well to the chrome silver. Also painted the main body armor and the 'backpack' in Black mixed with Royal Blue.

I also started with the gold armor parts, gave them a black base coat and sprayed Alclad2 Gold color on them. It's important to spray it in THIN layers I found out.... and the surface you apply it to has to be smooth and clean, you will see everything afterwards. But the gold sure does look good.
