Since my last update I have mostly finished the figure. The horse is the next step as it only has a base coat at the moment.
I had thought to paint the front of Kanu’s waistband a gloss black color, but when done I didn’t like it. So I turned it into a chrome metallic which I think is much better.
I had a horrid time painting the gold trim on the boots. I used Testor’s enamel and it was applied over a high gloss Future coated boot. The problem is that the enamel is an oil base paint and it tends to slide all over the top of the gloss acrylic. It does go on, but I had a lot of trouble to try and maintain an even edge.
Kanu’s weapon is painted with a Tamiya bronze and Alclad II chrome.
Kanu’s top is somewhat transparent. It almost looks like she doesn’t have anything on? I don’t know if this is PG-13, but then she is also beyond normal for her endowments which is probably also not PG-13.
Here is a picture from the back. Kanu is indeed wearing a pink top, just in case you thought not.
The next step is to clean up a few minor issues with the figure and then begin work on the horse. Look for another update in a week or two. Thanks for visiting.
Update: Minor issues are now corrected, and here are some more pictures, this time with the horse’s tail!
