This bastard is almost complete.
Decided to go ahead and work on the shield too. I used Tamiya Blue Violet on the backpack and feet and the overall combination with the white and clear red is lovely. Unfortunately, I had to redo the feet TWICE, as the damn paint ended up cracking for some strange reason, so the result was not as clean as I would have liked but I can live with that.
Since the entire thing was coated with Pearl Clear, the damn model simply reeks of chemicals, so I'm gonna leave it immobile for the next couple of days until the stuff completely cures.
Now I only have to work on the beam magnum and wait for the missing pieces I lost to arrive for this kit to be ready to go.
