Cool model. 👍 Did you paint the camo or was it already painted?

The whole kit has been painted (even the parts that were already black such as the radome border).

I opted for a gray/gray camo instead of the "canon" gray/greengray camo.
Since this is the "Black Ver." (molded in black and brown plastic instead of gray and white plastic) i downloaded the paint scheme for the "regular" version from 1999.co.jp

Thank you for the info Giuseppe. I got the standard "white" edition in my stash and i still dont know what camo i should use. I have seen a cool looking digital camo on a Metal Gear Rex, but cant finde the pictures anymore.

I think that you are referring to this camo: therpf.com/showthread.php?t=172670

On a side note, if you are looking for some unusual camo you may want to consider the desert camo portrayed in one of the early concept arts:

Another alternative may be a woodland camo (like the one used on Abrams tanks)

Great work! Wish Kotobukiya would repop these. 😮
