Luca, I don't think you are human!!  It's too perfect!!  :shock:  :shock:  8)

The heavy paneling and weathering really makes it stand out.  The cockpit is gorgeous too!!

It's almost too beautiful for words. It's perfection! That's exactly the scheme I had in mind for this. I really wish I could get one. :(

Do you mind if I move this to the Gallery since it's done??

I'll have to second that. This is just amazing.

Through my 12 years of modeling, this is undoubtedly the best thing I've seen.

Wow, just wow. I could barely concieve the fact that the entire model was scratch built, but now with some paint on it...it looks absolutely amazing. The level of detail is amazing. You should be EXTREMELY proud of your work!!

WOW Thanks guys! :D
This model grows up well from the beginning, I don'tt know why, but sometimes it's important to be lucky in scratchbuilding too... :oops:  :) !!
I really appreciate your words guys, it's very important to me because it's the first time I show it out of my country.
I can't explain what kind of effort that was for me. I'm very happy now is finished!! :D  :D
Michael: it's simply an honour, I agree, THANK YOU! (P.M. sent :wink: )

I haven't gotten a PM... can you resend it? :oops:

I split this topic and moved it to the Gallery since it's done. Now I'll add it to the list for MotM! This is a truely fantastic piece though... not only is it well executed from construction to the finished product, we all appriciate the effort you put into the in-progs to show us exactly how it was done. I've learned a great deal as I'm sure have others. Thanks for sharing Z!

This is undeniably the best mecha model that I have ever since -- fully scratchbuilt and realistically painted --- the details are just too many, everything was very well incorporated.

If I may be so bold to make a prediction - MOTY 2007  :D, unless others will dare to follow suit, a really inspiring masterpiece for the rest of us.

Salute to you sir!!! It's now my wallpaper!!!

I can't add any more than what's been said.  This is the best I've ever seen, ever.

Bah, this model is horrible.  It needs to be disposed of properly - so send it to me, and I will make sure that no one will ever see it again ;)
