1/48 Zaku II - Part 5

Time to do some work on the hip joints & lower skirt. The main section is just two pieces with two poly caps to fit the side skirts to.  This was filled, sanded & primed with Duraluminium.
Hip joint painted duraluminium on Zaku 2
The front & back armour & skirts were primed in grey

Front & rear armour primed

& allowed to dry fully followed by fine coats of U.K. Azure Blue (71.108) as the second blue shade I’m using.
 While the armour dried I went back to the hips & using “Metal Color” Steel, Burnt Iron, copper   (77.710) & Ammo Of Mig Brass on some of the fixing points & recesses to bring out the details. 
Two more poly caps went in the front of the unit & the painted front armour.

Detail work on hips & front armour fitted on 1/48 Zaku 2

 The rear armour just pushed into place & following the same detailing as the legs used small amounts of Gun Metal Grey in the recesses.

Finished rear armour now fitted
