Awwww, kawaii! :love:

I think I´ve got exactly the same Koubo-Kai model, and I actually painted it in a mauve tone which is almost identical to yours! Talk about coincidence!

Its actually painted grey (Citadel codex grey, highlighted with  mix of codex grey and fortress grey) - its just the bad light that makes it looks a shade of mauve!

I like the name - if you don't object I will use that name for the model.

Oh. Uh. Uhm... no, I still proudly proclaim that I own a mauve-coloured steam walker! Nothing worse than a pink submarine! :D :lol: ;)
