painting questions on nineball ver model kit
» (orginal not ninebreaker)

ok decided to buy the orginal Kotobukiya nineball (ps1 era one; http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10159299 ) and was looking into advice on how to paint it and what paints to use. understand you don't have to paint it however really wanted to make my nineball stand out as he's a really totemic part of armored core as well as one of my favourite games from my childhood.

I believe the correct paints were mr. color paints if memory serves me right and found a blog that translated the manual's paints (here but unfortunately the entry has since gone; http://www.mech9.com/blog/2012/03/172-ni...-manual/2/) so anyone got a idea what the offical/best paints are to use?. gonna try and use a black gundam marker for the outlines though not sure if thats a good idea.

I have painting experience in my highschool hayday with warhammer 40k but this is a new beast for me ( used to spray painting a black undercoat then painting ontop of that layer but yea this seems completely different).

any tips on painting (couldnt find tips on painting on site, I am fine on building due to prior experience with sprues and stuff, though would your typical superglue suffice or would a cement type be better? its been a while).

also getting fascinator otw too which I am really excited about Happy

thanks for your time
