SRW OG 1/144 ART-1 Part 3

ART-1, why you so colorful?

Continuing the heavy paint work on selected parts of SRW OG 1/144 ART-1 after the previous posting. ^^

Tiny slits on the leg parts are painted yellow.

Yellow paint applied on some other selected parts.

The paint used is a mixture between Mr. Color GX 4 Chiara Yellow Gloss and Mr. Color 109 Character Yellow.

Some of the parts require multiple layers of the paint for the base color to be covered up properly. ^^

The blade parts of Cold Metal Knives and Chainsaw Tonfas are painted using Tamiya Paint Marker X-11 Chrome Silver.

Another major color painted, given the large number of parts involved in dark blue. ^^

For the selected parts, the paint I used is this one: Mr Color CR1 Cyan.

Closeups on the painted parts.

Targeted areas on the knee armors, rear skirt armor, and rifle scope are painted gray using Mr. Gundam Color UG09 MS Gray Zeon Semi Gloss.

The joint arms and handles of Chainsaw Tonfas, and the handles of Cold Metal Knives are painted using Gaia Metallic Color No. 020 Gun Metal.

As the initial paint used on the rifle scope seems rather dark than its designated color after it was applied, I repainted the targeted area using Gaia Color Military Series No. 223 Interior Color. ^^;

The scope is shown to be in metallic green (as with most beam rifle targeting sensors) in the manual. This is another color to be added apparently, but I'll wait for the paint to dry completely before attempting that detailing work.

Excessive white paint on the arms parts is scratched away using pen knife before panel lines are added to the parts.

Test fitting the painted parts to see how the forearms would turn out when assembled. ^^

Simple panel lining for the fixed Chainsaw Tonfa parts.

The sunken edges on top the closed fists are painted black using normal panel liner to enhance the fingers' appearance on the parts.

Test fitting the closed fists with their armor parts to preview the detailing result. ^^

The white areas on some of the parts are repainted using White Surfacer from Mr. Hobby to make the paint result more pronounced. ^^

More refinement and detailing on other parts of this Kotobukiya kit coming up next. ^^
