MG Zeta Ver. 2.0 Part 3

The usual stuff again

Working on the identical parts for both legs in this review before moving on to each of them.

Parts to be painted: mecha parts, thrusters and hydraulic pipes.

Identical that they are, I still marked 'left' and 'right' behind the parts just to make sure I don't assume wrongly.

Definitely painting those pipes in silver, so panel-lines go in first to mark the border.

Painted them using Gundam Marker Silver.

Some other parts are painted in gold.

When the paint has dried, Another round of panel-lining is applied to cover up some minor excess paint.

Done for the four parts, with all details panel-lined.

Painting the hydraulic pipes - silver first and then gold.

Just a little bit of panel line separating the gold and silver portion of the hydraulic pipes to complete these two parts.

Painting the exterior of the legs' thrusters with Gundam Marker Gray. They are pretty hard to hold thanks to their shape, so I use the highly flexible Tack-It removable plaster as the holder instead.

Not really done yet for the leg thrusters, will carry forward till the next review.

Wow, this is very nice! For some reason, my Silver Gundam Marker is always so watery, do you know whats wrong with it?

Shake well bro, shake it while listen to a song, like 3-4 minutes ?

Yes, shaking the marker long and well usually produces better results. I think it has something to do with the mixture of paint and thinner inside the marker itself.
