For me, this was the most fun part of the whole kit. It took me two and a half hours just to assemble one leg. The next night I repeated the process for the second. Before assembly I used the paint markers to colour the inside of the thrusters as well as using the fine-tip, or スミイレ marker to do the panel lines. Panel lines are where pieces of the machine meet and lining them with marker brings them out and adds depth overall to the piece. I also applied decals before final assembly. I also painted the pistons in the upper leg, but they got covered up by the armour so only I know what's inside!
