Fantastic paintjob as usual!
I wish Bandai kits had such nice panel lines and details...

Looks great, Gam. The pose is a little stiff looking, but there's probably not much that can be done about that. Pretty though.

Well, my own stupidity was pointed out to me on another board... apparently I put the knees on upside down.  I'll go and fix that tonight as well as retake photos.  Should help the pose a little... I hope...

Awesome Job. I almost overlooked your completed posting because I've been following the build in the In-Progress section. When I saw it here it didn't jump out at me.

I like the different metallic shades on the mechanical details, a really nice touch. Looks like a really intricate kit, I bet you're ready for something simple after finishing this one...

I built the regular Hasegawa Valkyrie back in my non-airbrushing days. Panel lines and decals took forever! The poseability is limited and there's that tendency for things to "flop around" as well. I'd really like to build the Strike Valk, but it's gonna be so much work...

Again, nice job on a really complex kit! Flawless (except for the knees :D )!

HAH... fixed the knees, and removed any trace that I'm a bumbling model building idiot....  Retook pictures and updated my page.

Looks much better with the knees fixed. The pose is still a little stiff, but that's my only complaint. The weathering and finishing looks great as susual. 8)
