I have to admit I was kinda scared to post here as the works I been seeing in here are amazing, but I figured what the hell.
Ok, So this is almost complete, just trying to decide on a colour for the panel lines and then to add the decals after that.
This is my third MG kit and my second  painted one, the first is on hold as my wifes dog got into my room and ate one of the pieces I had drying at the time, and wont be finished till the replacement part comes along.
Colours used were Tamiya acrylic Deck Tan(xf-55) and the rest is Tamiya Deep Green (xf-26) with Sky Grey to finish it off (xf-19),joints,guns and inner parts Tamiya German Grey (xf-63)
For the panel lines i was thinking a very diluted black, maybe even a mix of black and medium blue. Suggestions for the panel line colours while the topcoat dries are welcome :)
Here is the kit so far.


The big gun has a small seam still showing on the underneath that must go, but other than that I think its coming along nicely.
Comments, critisms are all welcome.

Looks pretty damn good - does need a wash to give it some depth, but it's looking good so far!

Nice at this point. Needs waash may be a smooth dry brush in the inside of the shield and decals.

Quick It needs inking  :D !! Its looking great and clean now.. Your topcoat is satin? or flat? cos if its flat, its going to be messy when you do a wash.. hard to wipe off any excess

Is the dog eating your part an excuse for depriving us!! :mad: haha.. just thought of funny "my dog ate my homework" excuses :P

Looks good so far. You forgot to paint the part of the knee joint molded on the back of the calf though. A quick mask and airbrush session will fix that easily.

Might I suggest some "discoloration effects" for it after decals using oil paints. It'll give a nice worn look to the paint without going overboard on weathering. Your scheme screams for this. Check the following page and look for the part with dabs of various colored oils: (about 1/2 way down)

EDIT: take out and throw away that shield clear part... looks bad and unnecessary. Toyetic.

Plastic in the shield has been taken out. Will airbrush the joint on the back leg today.
Awaiting some proper decals to arrive before this is finished proper.
But in the meantime I thought I would share a couple of outside pics :)

just a suggestion I'd say for the body, you might wanna try using a brown for the panel lines
