1/72 Zoids Iron Kong English Color Guide & Manual

Kotobukiya 1/72 Iron Kong from Zoids English Translation of Color Guide & Manual

Back to some more translations of Color Guides. This time for the 1/72 Iron Kong made by Kotobukiya into a model kit. The Iron King is one of the living mecha that can be found in the Zoids anime franchise.

I like the way Kotobukiya designs their color guides. Even without understanding Japanese you can learn to read what color is needed based on the product code. Kotobukiya designed their color guides to be used with the Mr. Color Solvent based paints or Mr. Hobby Aqueous Color and other Mr. Hobby Line of paints. To demonstrate, lets look at the line of color posted below:

That basically means:

Black (this you will have to learn to read Japanese) : (Mr. Color Solvent Paint Product Code No "C"2 for Black:) + (Mr. Hobby Aqueous Paint Product Code No H2 for Black) Paint Percentage in the Mixture


Be sure to add a "C" to the number is you are using the Mr. Color Solvent based paints.

Erratum: The "Dark Ash" listed is supposed to be "Dark Earth" with C22 product code.
