WIP: R2-KT (Bandai 1/12)
story behind this cute little droid is touching and I hope that my work will pay it tribute! The pink is done with Tamiya Pink (X-17) with a drop of Flat Base (X-21) added since it is a gloss paint. While the rest of the panels can be painted and added after the fact, this piece has to be put in place before putting the two halves of the dome together, which is necessary to remove the seam. The nature of this model allows me to pretty much paint each piece separately and then assemble the model.
