MG Char's Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 Part 4

The cages

Back to work on MG Char's Gelgoog Ver. 2.0's leg parts in this posting. ^^

Inner frame parts for the feet.

Like the similar components on MG Zaku II Ver. 2.0 (Johnny Ridden's Customized High Mobility Type Zaku II Ver. 2.0 as an example again), the targeted parts are the fixed hydraulic pipes on the front portion.

Painted both end segments of the pipes gold using Mr. Metal Color 219 Brass.

Painted the middle portion silver using Mr. Metallic Color Silver.

Reapply panel lines on the parts when the paint has dried.

And these are some very common sets of hydraulic pipes for the ankle, heel and knee.

The ankle set.

The golden parts for the heel set.

The painted heel and knee sets.

Working on the largest armor pieces in this MG kit next: the leg armors. ^^
As you can see in the images above, the line details on the surface of the armors are already panel lined using the black paint with thinner method.

Since there's an additional layer of detachable armor on the larger ones (a special feature of this kit), the cage-like frame structure is supposedly in gray, following the color of the inner frame, as shown in the manual.
It's armor on armor, frame on frame! ^^

(Left) Panel lined the "roots" of the frame to define the border between areas to be painted and that to be left untouched.
(Right) Painted the frame gray using Tamiya Color Acrylic Paint XF-53 Neutral Gray.

The rear side of the frame and all the corners are covered.

The end result, with the panel lines on the armors cleaned up using cotton swaps with thinner.

Panel lines for the details inside the armor parts.

Trying out the parts to see how the completed armor would look like. ^^
Massive legs ^^

Some delicate stuff to finish off before ending this particular set of work: the small knob-like parts that sits on the inner frame of the legs (I have no idea what they are supposed to be for in terms of Gelgoog's mecha design ^^;)

Painted the "knobs" and tails gold using Gundam Marker.

Reapply panel lines on the parts when the paint has dried.
Looks like small drumsticks to me ^^;

There are still some other armor parts to work on before completing the legs, which will be covered in the next posting. ^^
