I finished this 1:144 kit earlier this week. It is simply an OOB with different colour scheme. However it is an OOB from three different boxes of kits, namely the blue and green versions of Geara Doga and a backpack of Jagd Doga.











Life may not be the party we hoped for but while we're here we might as well dance.

I like the subtlety in your shading. It make the kit very smooth. Very nice.

Thanks  :D

Thanks, it took a while to paint it. Consider the fact that a standard Geara Doga has 25 thrusters ...

Thanks! The shade took longer that usual to paint. Take the orange for example, on top of the base coat of black, I applied white on appropriate areas. Then an overall coat of red was applied before the last top coat of orange on selected areas.

The colour scheme gives it a feel of a Desert Geara, sweet and clean. Btw, what happened to the rest of the three kits?  :lol:

The other two kits (blue Geara Doga and red Jadg Doga) are sitting at the bottom of a big pile  :P

Really nice clean model. Great paint job and nice loadout. I like all the options you've picked. Desert Doga!

With some weathering, it'll definitely look like a battle worn desert color scheme Geara Doga  :razz:

But it looks like a test type or training MS to me  :lol: liking the even shading.... btw, you did pre or post shading?

As a matter of fact, I did very light weathering on this one. I am simply not skillful enough to add heavy weathering on this scale  :embarrased:

BTW, it's pre-shade, easier to control for me.

Very nice color scheme and finish. The shading on the orange is a little harsh for my tatse, but overall nice work.

Thanks. Shades on orange, yellow and red are always more difficult for me  :wacko:
