How to Hand Paint Gunpla Details Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex Blue Metallics with Lincoln Wright
How to blue metallics on a Gundam frame! Presented by Lincoln Wright, Japan Hobby Industry professional modeller.

Hey Brobots! An early sneak peak for you before this video goes public our Wednesday morning. I’m going to show you how I hand painted my Barbatos Lupus Rex Frame's blue metallic details here in Chapter 3. That’s right, I did not use an airbrush at all!

If you are interested in seeing this video in it's entirety, ad-free and with the Bonus Content, please check it out here;

In the video linked above, here are the steps I’ll take you through, broken the video down into Chapters to hopefully make it easier to access the exact content you want to watch again in the future.

I'm very excited to hear your feedback on this one! 2 key things I aimed for on this are to make it as compact and informative as possible whist being very accessible and logical with the chapter arrangements. How does that work for you? Hopefully it will be more useful on subsequent viewings when you want to come back to watch a particular chapter.
