Work on the HGUC Schuzrum Galluss is going pretty smoothly and quickly. On the third day of work I masked all the parts that weren’t color separated that includes the knee tubing which is molded with the inner frame, the front ends of the feet which are supposed to be red, and two exterior frames that jut out of the front skirt.

As you can see from the pics, I used a pretty thin model tape to mask the parts, since I needed some precision when it came down to the actual divide between two colors in some pretty hard to get to spots. And since this was the only masking tape that I had on hand, I also used it to cover the remaining parts that had already been spray painted.

I used Tamiya’s red spray paint for the feet and skirt portions, and Model Masters intermediate blue for the tubing, which I will also use for the rest of the tubing pieces and the mine weaponry.

In addition, I primed the last group of parts that includes the mine weaponry, some tubing and chest plates.

Finally, I color spray painted the extra weaponry and remaining inner frame pieces. I’m pretty excited to see how the Kotobukiya Panzerfaust will look with the kit. With the dual Panzerfaust I was going with a look similar to the Kampfer which this model, specifically with the magnetic chain mine, has some influences.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to finish color spray painting the last group and do some top coating for the next day of work.
