Woooow so nice! Your Zaku III was very good, hopefully less epoxy work this time :razz:. Are you thinking of shortening the forearms a little? I think that would help keep the SD look.

You are so good working on SDs... they are too hard for me!

I never noticed before, but is the head off a Spawn figure?

Looking good... I'm gonna have to put some extra work into the Cage.

Small update: most of the kit is in it's second coat of primer after removing some flaws. I have used ABS cement to try and fix the joints, so far it looks OK. We'll see. I think I will have to go with gunmetal. One more coat of white primer and it'll be ready for paint.

Thanks! The knees feel quite smooth so I'll see how it looks in primer.

Perhaps gunmetal on black for the joints?

The new Jagd... I'm taking it in a Quebley direction. Less detail and high finish. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the ABS joints. The seams are keeping me up at night, but I'm not sure what I can do about it. ABS cement perhaps? There is so much depth in the pieces though that I'll never be able to sand it away anyways. Maybe just play it cool, paint it flat black and hope everybody thinks it is supposed to be there. Damn you ABS!

Thanks! The mono eye is an LED. I wanted to have it lit but couldn't fit the batteries as planned so I ended up painting it.

Thanks for your comments. It is actually a sort of tan colour originally. Sorry I didn't take more pictures, but batteries are so expensive!

You know I think if I had to change it I would change the brown to match the yellow better, not the other way around. I love the old crazy colours of Gundam (although I know what you mean about the green).

There will be no weathering for this beast. I love him like he is, besides it's not my style. No decals either. ;).

Update:





I started doing some painting. Nothing is set in stone yet, but I will add some washes later on. The rear end is still a work in progress. It is just the engine and wheels, so I will do them up and then dust them and it should be OK.

One of my longest projects to date. It took 3 1/2 months for me to mod, adding details and such. Only took 2 days to paint, which was surprisingly pleasant.

Comments welcomed, except of course please respect that I paint in a certain style.  ^_^

YMy only complaint would be that half of the base almost seems wasted, with all the action on the one side.

C'mon, that's harsh! It's all going down on the leaf side of the NERV logo... that is a wicked idea! Who cares about balance when there is an underlying reason for how it is laid out? This is the best EVA modeling I have ever seen. It is very symbolic, as is the nature of the show.

Amazing.

This kit is pretty tough as it is. I worry that your chains will make painting even more difficult :P. Looks good so far.

According to http://www.swannysmodels.com/TheCompleteFuture.html it is available as "Klear", "Krystal Klear" or "Johnson's One and All".

You're not really in the deep end, at least you are going to learn by doing. When you get your airbrush make sure to practice a lot before going on to your model. Use water and maybe mix some dark food colouring into it and practice your strokes and getting even coverage on blank paper before trying your Tamiya paints. Otherwise you will spend a fortune on just practicing!

I'm sure you will have a blast with your kit. If you don't you're doing it wrong.  ^_^ Don't forget to post pictures.

I love the steps, they look awesome. It adds a sense of rigidity to the whole thing. Very nice.  ^_^

Cool. It reminds me of this Kampfer somewhat:

It looks great. Maybe the beam end could be a little more weathered from heat damage.

But that looks awesome, I am amazed how well it turned out!

This is the best model you've done in my opinion. But I love the Hi-Zack ^_^. Fantastic, whoever gets it is very lucky.

Looking good, but I think the wall seems a little arranged now, it needs some half-broken bricks to break up the staircase look.I find it unlikely that if an MS arm fell on a brick wall the bricks would fly out in solid pieces and then shatter into dust when they hit the ground.
