BB Senshi Sangokuden Shin Enjutsu Zssa Part 4

No more gold, still very shiny

Another round of work on on BB Senshi Sangokuden Shin Enjutsu Zssa after the previous posting. ^^

Gold is obviously not needed anymore after the color was featured heavily in the previous posting, but the other paint work I have in mind for this batch of work still require bright and shiny colors. ^^

Seven parts to be painted silver.

The backpack is an optional component added to the list - the beak/antenna sticking out on top of it looks like a blade, and will be painted like one. ^^

Conveniently, Hisoutos' (飛双刀) handle can be inserted into the slot meant to connect the weapon to Hisenkon (飛旋棍) - the sharp point of the pummel even matches the narrow interior of said slot. ^^
Combining the scimitars helps with the holding of the parts for a more secure paint work.

The selected parts are painted using Gaia Metallic Color No. 9 Bright Silver.

Closeups on the painted blades and shoulder block parts.

The abdomen is painted red using Gundam Marker.

The shoulder armors, waist area on the two body parts and the neck joint are going to be painted black.

As with the two tiny pipes beneath the head.

The molded details on the forehead depicting Enjutsu Zssa's family name is going to be painted to highlight the design, but I've not decided what color to be used for it at the moment. ^^;

The targeted parts are painted using Gaia Metallic Color No. 020 Gun Metal.

Normal panel lining to define the border between the dark blue and golden sections inside (left image) and outside the painted leg and forearm armors.

A pair of tiny vents on the back of the forearm armors are painted black using normal marker.

Following the "practice" set since the work on Shin Koshin Gyan from the same series, the molded details on the painted areas are panel lined using Gundam Marker GM03 for Panel Lining Super Fine (Brown).

Two sunken panels on top the extra shoulder armor parts are painted black using normal marker to emulate depth for those areas.

Will continue with more work on this BB Senshi Sangokuden kit in the next posting.
