Read This First Before Attempting to Detach (Old) Nendoroids’ Parts

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version

One of the greatest feature of a Nendoroid is its ability to swap parts with each other. Yes, most Nendoroid parts are interchangeable between Nendoroids, so you can simply mix-match the parts to either create a yet-to-be-released character or even create a new one!

That said, when you have Nendoroids that have been stored for a long time, you have to be very careful when you detach their parts because they could break easily – especially the joints on old Nendoroids.

So are there any way to minimize the risk?

Mikatan Shows How to Paint A Nendoroid Expression

Mikatan posted the first part of an in-depth tutorial about how to paint a Nendoroid expression. However, since the blog post uses some images from ImageShack, a few of them are only displaying ‘frozen frog’ due to the ‘domain unregistered’ issue, thus making the tutorial a bit uncompleted. 😄

Our reader Kwang put a request to repost the tutorial along with completed pics (taken from the Japanese version of the blog post) … and I thought, “Why not?” as long as it would help many Nendonesian as well.

Well then, kindly read the tutorial after the break.
