Work in progress - BB Senshi Sangokuden Bashoko Gundam Part 1

The next model I am going to work on is the BB Senshi Sangokuden Bashoko Gundam. Bought this kit together with several other Sangokuden kits on a buying spree as there was a sale. Bought each of them at SGD$5 each when the usual price was about SGD$12.

The original gold colour of kit was terrible. I painted it using my gold oil-based paint marker.

The colour was light grey which I did not like, so I painted it silver with an oil-based paint marker too. Looks much better.

The head was pretty simple. I just used the foil sticker for the eyes. Quite a interesting way to change the two different set of eyes. I panel line the head and face. I proceed to paint the chin using the Red Gundam Marker as I do not want to use the foil sticker. Using masking tape, I kept the ink from overflowing to the other part of the face, thus preventing a messy affair.
The head almost assembled with the Red Gundam Marker I used to paint the chin. 

The arm came next. After assembling, the whole arm is all in blue. The parttern on it was supposed to be in gold. A foil sticker was supposed to pasted on it. But knowing me, I opt to use my trusty gold oil-based paint marker on it. I used black oil-based paint markers for the hands.

 The torso and the waist came next. Pretty straight forward to assemble. Just needed some panel lining and a little painting.

That is all for now. Will continue on the next session for another time.
