Painting Binders

Nice build! Glad you showed some of your work in progress work too. it's always great to see how everybody likes to build. I paint details while they're on the runners too and then I clean up my borders when I start to fit painted areas together.

I know how you feel about those yellow tips on the wings, seriously. Bandai can do back-insert plates in yellow plastic and injection frame out mold the blue ends, but its cheaper to have decals. Or paint.

did you use enamel?

I was thinking of how you can clean up those edges and excess paint away with a toothpick (or a tamiya cotton tip swab) and a little solvent.

Thanks Rob! All my painting

Thanks Rob! All my painting is done with Gundam Markers, store bought silver and gold markers, and permanent markers for white parts. I was in a bit of a building crunch and couldn't find toothpicks in my house for some reason when I was painting. ^_^;

Hate when that happens

I hate when that happens. You should totally stock up for next time! I prefer a square cut tooth pick, easier to shave flat one one edge.
Still, it should be an easy clean up with the GM300 "Gundam Marker Eraser." just decant a little bit of it from the pen into a paint cup and wipe off the excess paint without stabbing the painted area.
