Finished this Vagan Dorado kit today. The overall design of the kit is pretty cool and makes me motivated to try more of them. The colors came out a bit darker that I'd have liked, and a tad too flat. I think glossier finishes are better fitting these sorts of mobile suits.
Finished this under a "paint while you build" approach that left me with a huge headache and a short temper. guess I'll try a minimal paint method for the next kit since they don't really need an overall paintjob that's similar to the base colors anyway.
Also this kit is hella tall. Significantly larger (and hence more menacing) when compared to the federation suits of AGE. Me likey.
