Gundam BB Zhaoyun Gundam Hieisen BB-311 Part 1

It has been more than a year since I purchase a Gundam Model kit (Keroro model kit not counted as it is not Gundam). However this Gundam BB ZhaoYun is not my first BB. My first BB was Gundam F91. Now what left of it was his weapons....but that is another story.



Among most of the general in The Three Kingdom period, the one I fancy most is ZhaoYun. With his legendary white horse and spear, he rush thru thick enemy line just to save his lord's son. Such loyal and heroic action will never be forgotten. Just for the sake of history, he is the only general of the 5 who die naturally of sickness due to old age.

With the purchase of this model kit, I figure out that it require some painting. I am not very experience or good in painting. At such I bought the Gundam marker that is just for painting this series.


Look at the parts.... It look rather overwhelming right?


And to think the finish product need to be like these with painting...


The instruction Sheets are easy to understand even if you do not understand Japanese language.


On the flip side of the sheet is a short comic which part of it was translated in English.


I decided to start with the easy one which is the horse.


Here horsey horsey...


I carefully break it part by part and assemble it into position...


Somehow the head remind me of "Golden Horse" Award.


After a period of painting (few weeks due to procrastination), this is what I got. Okay I did not follow exactly. :P


Next would be Zhao Yun.


I will continue on the next entry! So far so good? :P

Continue Part 2 here.

It sure looks good!

I like Zhao Yun for the same reason as you. But I love all 3 brothers as each has their own heroic stories.

Looking forward for your painted Zhaoyun!

Thanks. Basically I love all 5 Generals of "Shu" but Zhao Yun is my favorite. Stay tune as the very next entry will be on Zhao yun. I spend more time working and painting on him as he got more details.

Looking good Leon! Is the gold color on the horse from the coloring pens or stickers?
LEon said…
@RiP666
The old one do you mean the SD Gundam? Actually Sagokukan series also quite old...

@Jcee
Thx Jcee! The gold color on the horse are from the Bandai color pens. Everything that is Gold I use the markers. Gold pens almost running out but it is worth it.

The only stickers I used on the horse is the silver and gold sticker on both side of the upper 2 front leg. :)
Jcee said…
The colors look great! Better than I expected, I've never used the pens except for the black one for panel lining. Love the green on the head too! Is that a metallic green or is it just the flash?
LEon said…
The green you talking about is it on the horse? If it is, then it is from the pen and it is metallic and glossy.

I would recommend the Gundam paint marker as you see in the photo. That series is all metallic. It is easy to use (If you dun have butter fingers). Just need to be careful. :)
