Colorful little guy

Continue with the assembly on BB Senshi Force Impulse Gundam after the initial posting yesterday.

Just Impulse Gundam.

"Spare parts" of Core Splendor and beam saber handle can be stored at the display stand's base.

Apart from remembering all the work done for so few parts - a common trait of my dealing with BB Senshi kits, ^^; it's very easy to notice how colorful the kit turns out to be. Apart from having the conventional color scheme of a protagonist Gundam, the colors are spread between different segments on the various components in details. The body unit as a slightly larger component has blue, red, yellow, white, gray and light blue as its colors; the Core Splendor, while being much smaller has the same combination of colors (minus light blue). With so few parts designed for each component, not having to paint so many different colors on the same component is not really possible with Force Impulse Gundam if you want to follow the actual color scheme closely.

Then again, looking at all the BB Senshi kits in general, almost all of them require extensive painting anyway, regardless of whether their color scheme is as striking and colorful as that of Force Impulse Gundam or not. ^^;
