Finally finished my first Gunpla in months and thought I'd share.  :embarrased:

It's a bit cleaner paint-up than I've done in recent times. Didn't do a full on oil or enamel wash like I should have and did a chalk pastel wash (sorry)! :lol:

Overall, the scheme came out better than I thought it would. Hope you all enjoy! Feel free to comment and critique away!

Thanks, Ako! Yeah, I knew right away that I wasn't going to do the standard scheme with this build. I almost took it in a different direction. I'm glad I stuck with this though!

Oh yes, my apologies to FichtenFoo for having to fix my previous post.  :doh:

The radome threw me off and I thought it was a Z+, very interesting piece.

Nice merger of Zeta and Z-Plus designs, it's cool.  I'm not totally sold on the color scheme just because I have a preference for more colorful stuff, but it definitely works and feels very "Sentinel-y".  I love the resin head!  Where'd you score that ancient kit??  If you feel like getting rid of the other one, I have an old 1/144 Z-Plus that I've been dreading fixing the head on...*wink wink*

Pete! Thanks, bro! Yeah, the resin heads are of course from that old school Model Graphix set from way back when. I got it from Yahoo Japan a few years ago and thought It would be cool to bash in with the HGUC Zeta. Lemme know if you still want the other Z plus head and It's yours, as I have no real intention of using it. And let's face it, we all want to see your next piece! ;)

@ Blah, dr_feelgood and rayloke; thanks so much! I know gray looks very different that the traditional Zeta we're used too, but I wanted to switch up things a little!

I'd absolutely take the head, maybe we could work out a trade or something. I have some decals laying around, I'll look and see what I have and send you a list, maybe you want something. :)

Sounds cool to me! I can always use more decals, especially yours. Send me a PM and we can totally work it out.  :-)
