I did this one by using fabric dye. Mix a box of dye in a medium saucepan, bring to a simmer, throw the pieces in, and stir.
Note: If you have a gas range, I would avoid this technique like the plague. You can’t get an even and predictable heating area and run the risk of melting pieces beyond repair!
This is the only ZED I have, because 1) they were overpriced, and 2) it’s a Dark Horn. I managed to find this one for cheap on YJ, but after all the middleman markups it came to about retail. Damn. This one’s a windup, so at least it didn’t cost over 6000 yen (about a million US dollars in today’s economy). Anyway, it looks to be about 1/200 scale, is mostly pre-built (you add the weapons), and comes with three TINY pilots. Sadly it does not glow in the dark, but you can’t have everything.
