MG Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 Part 4

Same old same old

Continuing with the work on MG Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 after the previous posting. ^^

As compared to the previous two postings, this batch of work will feature even closer resemblance to that did on the same parts of MG Char's Customized Gelgoog Ver. 2.0. ^^

Simple panel lining for the inner frame parts of the arm using normal panel liner and Tamiya's Panel Line Accent Color (Black).

(Left) The delicate line details deep inside the forearm vents are done using Tamiya's panel lining solution.
(Right) Painted black for the "borders" between connecting elbow joint parts so that the line separator would be very obvious when assembled.

Painted the edge of the knuckle in gray using Gundam Marker

Gaps between the fingers and a tiny protruding bit at the thumb's base are painted as well.

"Borders" between connecting upper arm and forearm armors are painted black using normal marker.

Simple panel lining for all the arm's armor parts.

All the completed arm parts are returned to the paper box for storage.

All the panel line and slight paint work is repeated for parts of the other arm.

The segments on the shoulder armors' inner side that connect the parts to their joints are painted gray using Gundam Marker.

The details molded deep inside the armors are panel lined. ^^

Test fitting the shoulder armor and the painted inner frame part from yesterday's batch of work to see how the completed component would look like when they are assembled. ^^

The gray paint applied to the two segments just now are almost not detectable at all. ^^;
It can still be seen at a close range though. Luckily for that, or else I would have to call it a waste of time and Gundam Marker paint. ^^;

Details outside the shoulder armors and that on other inner frame and vent parts are panel lined as well.

Repetitive panel lining work for the six pieces of parts between the shoulders and their armors. ^^;

Simple panel lining for all the details behind the large skirt armor parts.
All the connectors are painted gray using Gundam Marker to make them look more cohesive with the armor parts when assembled.

The two small sections near the beam saber's mount rack on the rear skirt armor part and the surrounding area of the armor part for the mount rack itself are painted gray using Gundam Marker Gray to associate it with the inner frame rather than the armors.

Done for the detailing work on all the skirt armor parts. ^^

Like the leg thrusters' connectors in the previous posting, the small stripe of "boxes" on the skirt armor's thruster connector parts are not painted as well to deliberately give them a simpler looking appearance.

Simple panel lining inside and outside the skirt armors' inner frame parts.

Gold and silver are added to the fixed hydraulic pipes around the waist using normal pens. The pipe-like details on the crotch area are left untouched though.

Done for the detailing work on the hip's frame parts.

Just a couple more components to go before the entire work on this kit is finished. ^^ Detailing work for the weapons and head will be featured next. ^^
