Looks great. I manage to get a set of the official paint also so I’m itching to build one of my own. I’ll probably start on the Yamamoto, Not going to light it up like you though so I’m looking forward to your laght effects. BTW. Which yellow did you use?
Yea The reason gloss black is used is because it has reflective properties which allow light to reflect off of the metallic finish. You can try other colors too, Like for a shiney gold, a gloss red adds a nice hue to it. My friend used Gloss blue under metallics on a bike… it was epic!
