Keropla God Keron Part 15

Easier work to wrap things up

Finishing the work on Keropla God Keron's Kururu Robo Mk-II after the previous posting. ^^

Simple panel lining for the giant radar disc part. ^^

Excessive orange paint on the little control vehicle is scratched away using a knife.
The two parts are panel lined using a combination of normal panel liner and Tamiya's Panel Line Accent Color (Black).

The designated color for the headlights, as depicted on the box art is actually fluorescent blue, but I feel orange is a color that can reflect Kururu and the overall robot better. ^^

The "snail shell" emblem on the robot's chest/forehead should be painted yellow.

Like all the other Robo Mk-IIs, the cockpit area of Kururu Mk-II has tons of molded line details that would seem wasted if not panel lined. ^^;

(Left) Kururu's emblem is painted yellow using Gundam Marker.
(Right) Excessive yellow paint around the emblem is "hidden" using new panel lines reapplied onto the painted areas. ^^

Mecha details of the cockpit area are done using normal panel liner and Tamiya's Panel Line Accent Color (Black).

(Left) To give the part a shiny reflective surface behind the clear green part, a silver foil sticker is given for the eye.
(Right) I painted the four slots where the clear green part fits onto the eye using Pilot Super Color Silver Extra Fine to cover spots missed by the silver foil sticker. ^^

Simple panel lining for the rest of the robot's body parts.

Simple panel lining for some of the other leg parts not shown in Part 13.

Moving on to the small figure of Kururu: the "earphone" edges (XD) are painted using Gundam Marker Gray.

Panel lining for the eyes.

Test fitting the painted parts to see how the completed "earphone" would look like when assembled. ^^

Kururu's tiny emblem on his forehead is painted using Gundam Marker Yellow.
The panel line is added when the paint has dried.

The emblem on the abdomen will depend on one of the paper sticker pieces included to realize.
(I actually forgot to include this part in the checklist for orange paint work in Part 13 -_-|||)

Simple panel lining for the rest of Kururu's parts.

A more relaxing round of work this is to finish off Kururu Robo Mk-II. ^^ It's definitely easier than the previous two batches. Not a single part that requires hand painting is present this time, which is a clear enough indication of the work's simplicity to me. ^^

With Kururu Robo Mk-II off the list now, only Dororo Robo Mk-II remains as the last kit in this Keropla bundled set to paint and detail before the final assembly begins. ^^

But that abdomen piece, why did I not remember to put it in the list... -_-|||
