BB Senshi Sangokuden Asurao Moukaku Gundam, Syukuyuu Gundam, Kyoshin Elephant Set Part 8

The last missing color

The last batch of work on BB Senshi Sangokuden Asurao Moukaku Gundam, Syukuyuu Gundam and Kyoshin Elephant Set already. ^^

The usual paint treatment to bring out the character names molded on the sole. ^^

A bit of panel lining required for Syukuyuu Gundam's feet parts.

While foil sticker is included for Kougouyaka's eyes, there's concern that some minor spot at the edge of the eye area may not be covered up completely. ^^;
The edge is painted black using normal panel liner for that reason.

Of all 12 jewels on Moukaku Gundam's wings (three on each side for two wings), only two of them are given foil stickers, which is obviously not enough. They would have to be painted then.

The rear head sensor of Moukaku Gundam and Syukuyuu Gundam's chest jewel will need to be painted green as well.

Painted all the parts using Mr. Color No. 175 Fluorescent Green Flat.

Panel lined the head and chest parts when the paint has dried.

(Left) Panel lined Syukuyuu Gundam's chest armor part in entirety since all the detailing work on the part is now done. ^^
(Right) Test fitting the parts to see how Syukuyuu Gundam's torso would turn out when assembled. ^^

Panel lined the wing parts.

Panel lining for the two Gundam's face parts.

Moukaku Gundam's last name molded on his forehead is painted using Gaia Metallic Color No. 122 Star Bright Gold.
Using Gundam Marker Gold would be a lot easier, but the color wouldn't look consistent with all the other parts painted in gold on Moukaku Gundam.

Panel lining for Syukuyuu Gundam's helmet parts.

Test fitting the parts to see how Syukuyuu Gundam's entire helmet would turn out when assembled. ^^

And all is done for this bundled kit. ^^ Except for the extensive details on Kougouyaka painted in Part 4 and the two Gundams' body parts which went through so many round of paint work due to various colors needed here and there, the entire bundled kit seems fairly standard in terms of workload. It's not simple, but manageable. It's comparable to BB Senshi Sangokuden Gotaitei Sonken Gundam Korinpaku I think. The work on its tiger head helmet and detailing of the clear blue armor parts did call for pretty intense concentration. ^^;

As usual, there'll be a bit of offset time between now and when I revisit all the parts again for the final assembly. ^^.
