MG PMX-003 The-O Part 2: Priming Parts and More Paint

Back skirt armor of The-0 primed with Tamiya gray primer.

I am definitely going to need more primer and paint for the Master Grade The-O kit. Today I primed the first group of yellow armor plates using 2 Tamiya gray primer 180 ml cans. I bought three cans of primer and was under the assumption that would be all I would need for the armor and weapons, but I’ve still got another group of yellow armor plates which include the shoulder armor and head and it doesn’t look like my 3rd can is going to make it.

I’ll also plan on purchasing a 4th can of Tamiya Chrome Yellow, given those cans carry less paint than the primer cans.

After all the armor and weapons are done, I’ll move to the inner frame which looks like at this point may not need as much primer as the armor.

Some back and front skirt armor primed and ready to get painted.
