    Did you spray or brush or both?
    Looks alot better without the shine.



    I'd almost say that's a plum purple.

    Yeah, I need to paint match that purple and get on those windows. I like that.

    I sprayed it with rust-oleum flat green apples, gloss grape, flat black and metallic aluminum. It’s a primer & paint in one. Can’t bet Home Depot.

    How was the disassembly and reassembly? It looks like it would be a huge pain in the ass.

    What about just getting to the orange parts? Would that be significantly easier or would it require almost the same amount of work as the total disassembly?

    I've taken a couple of them apart to get at the orange parts. Nothing too stressful about it, just a matter of unscrewing a couple of screws.

    Just screwed together. Really easy and fun to do. Here’s some more photos for everyone.

    These look so much better! Was it such a long process because the first bots came out so long ago? Or just disassembly, sort, paint, drying time, more paint then re-assemble that took so long?

    It took so long because of the bots release schedule. I would order them as they were release and start on it once it arrived. It only took me about two days to complete each bot start to finish.

    Boxed set is out in my country. It’s quite bittersweet since the crane guy still hasn’t showed up locally.

    I'm still waiting on my NBK05 which seems to have gotten stuck midway through delivery...
    My local store has yet to receive NBK06 as well... so this is going to be a long unfortunate wait to finish this set.

    I'm pretty happy with him, but that repaint is pretty glorious.
