Well, not really a custom job. I haven't ventured into the scratchbuilding aspect of gundam modeling but I am putting my own paint scheme onto my next one. First thing you should do is find some lineart of the gundam you are going to be painting and then, by hand or by computer, colour it until you get something you like. As this is my first attempt at painting, I went with a simple design.
Then I needed to pick up the supplies I would need. black and light gun metal spray paint, a glossy surfacer, a flat surfacer, enamel and enamel thinner, and masking tape.
I will explain more about the uses of these supplies as I progress through the build.
