MG Zaku II F2 EFSF Ver. Part 3

Revision II: Silver and red for weapons' scopes

Moving on with the work on MG Zaku II F2 EFSF Ver. after the previous posting. ^^

The pipe portion of the Heat Hawk is painted silver using Zebra Paint Marker.

Simple panel lining for the entire ax.
The box side image showed this weapon to be painted in quite a few colors, but I decided to keep it this simple since this is how all the previous Heat Hawk were treated. ^^

Simple panel lining for the bazooka, Sturm Faust and hand grenades.

The usual paint treatment for the bazooka's targeting scope: silver on the rear face (from Zebra paint marker) and red in front (from normal permanent marker).

Sturm Faust's warhead is painted red using Gundam Marker just to make it look a bit more outstanding.

The grenade launcher's muzzle is painted black using normal marker.

Zaku Machine Gun's targeting scope is treated in the exact same way as the bazooka's scope.

Simple panel lining for Zaku Machine Gun.

The machine gun's main body parts have great details to look at. ^^

All corners and sides of the machine gun's parts are taken care of. ^^

Gold and silver paints (Gundam Marker and Pilot Super Color Silver Extra Fine respectively) for the fixed hydraulic pipe set beneath the shoulder joints.

Simple panel lining for the other shoulder and waist joint parts.

Just simple black panel lines would be a little too "ordinary" for the body parts I suppose. ^^;

Various bolts-like details on either sides of the body can be painted to give them a more outstanding appearance.

The details that are hard to reach via normal panel liner are done using Tamiya's Panel Line Accent Color (Black) first.

The bolts-like details are painted gold using Gundam Marker.

Panel lines applied to the two body parts after the paint has dried.

Just like the previous posting, everything is as simple as simplicity can be for the parts panel lined and painted in this posting. ^^

Will move on to the rest of the body and shoulder armor parts in the next posting. ^^
