Work in progress BB Senshi Sangokuden SD Zhao Yun Gundam - Part 1

After some time of inactivity, it is time for some gunpla building again. This time the SD Sangokuden character is based on one of the five Tiger Generals for the Shu kingdom, Zhao Yun. Personally he is my favourite character from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. For this kit itself, he even comes with his own horse.

The gold parts before painting
 As usual with the Sangokuden kits, I was not happy with the colour of the gold parts, therefore I proceed to paint them in my prefered gold shade while attached to their runners.

SD Zhao Yun's basic form completed!

I have achieved my target of completing Zhao Yun's basic form in this phase. Will proceed with his armor in the next phase. Now have to tidy up my workstation before I turn in for the night. Yawn...


  1. SD Zhao Yun Gundam has got one of the best design. It's the elegant look. Are you only left with Huang Zhong to complete the 5 Tigers General?
