Very clean looking model there.  Only criticism I can make - I would have liked to see the '78' on the ankle guard in the same blue as the shoulder and thigh stripes.  But other than that, great job!

Not too bad. It's a shame that the colors of the decals don't match, but that's not too bad. The thing that bothers me about it is that the clear gloss coat seems to be a little lumpy/textured. Aside from that it's cool. 8)

It makes me like the RX-78 again.  It kind of reminds me of the F-91 (especially the lineart).  I have yet to see someone try to asthetically make anything of Kunio's, but I'm not complaining... its too curvy for my detailed tastes.  Trying to replicate one of his linearts would also make it pretty impossible to pose well.

Still, nice work.  Its not something I've seen or have thought of myself, so it stands out amongst the many RX-78 color variations we see out there.  Nice job!
