I like the color scheme here. Is it me, or are we seeing more blue kits these days? I blame the Titans and the AoZ kits.  :lol:

The weathering indentations seem a little odd. They almost look more like they're shaved off, as opposed to scratches and dents through wear-and-tear and battle. It looks like they need a little sharper edge to them. Then again, I'm looking at photos larger than actual size. The effect may look different when viewing the model in three dimensions.

The chest vents are interesting. I'm used to seeing a rectangular opening on the inside (a la GP01fb), but I like the way this looks. Almost like cover-caps. Thumbs up on the modifications.

Looks great - the only thing that kinda sticks out to me, are the upper legs - those large openings showing the pistons inside.  Just seems like, on something that is expected to fight, and probably has been in alot of battles, that something as critical as the pistons that help control the knee, would be well protected, and not left exposed where a stray shot could take out an entire leg...

@zerobxu: thanks for the comments, ya i'm still practicing my weathering maybe 4-5 more projects and some references will boost my skills, thanks again!  :D

@fulcy: nothing special about the pistons showing up, i just like the way it looks and for me it's a shame not to show those MG details, anyway this is kit will sit on my display cabinet and not on a battle field :D

Progress: the GM is finished; just dont have the time to take a photo of it.
