For me,  Flauros is one of the hidden gems from Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans. This kit is unique unlike any other kit, it has two forms; human form and animal form. It is also complete with weapons. While I’m customizing this kit, I faced several difficulties but I enjoyed customizing it. This is the first time I scribed a complicated design. The technique I used had to be sketched on a piece of paper to check if it’s good on the armor.


What I used:

  1. Dymo Tapes
  2. Scriber

Here is the list of my scribe parts:

  • Arms Armor
  • Legs
  • Foot
  • Backpack


For the gun, I thought about painting it silver. I had to search on youtube on how to customize a  “Burnt Metal Effect”. This YouTuber named SavageForged Minis showed how to customize the gun and how to paint first with an overlapping layer. This is the first time I did this effect so it is not perfect, there is a lot of room for improvements.



For the color scheme, I think that the color black is a good combination with the gun and this build is like a stealth-type sniper.

Here’s what I used:
Color #1: For the whole body
GPaint Black 
Coating #1: Flat
Tamiya top coat flat

Color #2: For the Gun with burnt metal effect
Armored Komodo: Metallic Pearl White
Armored Komodo: Clear Red Paint
GPaint Blue

Coating #2: Flat
Tamiya top coat flat

Water Decal: RG 1/144 Astray Blue Frame
Apply water decal with hot water use tweezers

Coating #3: Flat
Tamiya top coat flat
