I love the base.  What is a rivet-er?  Otherwise very nice.

@ Asmodeous
- thanks sir for dropping by, a rivet-er....umm..actually i just called it that name  :lol: because i dont
know what it is it can simulate rivet marks with constant distance, its just like a slicer for cutting pizza ,
i'll take a pic later. thanks!

-------------------
UPDATEl:

the base was too simple for me so i decided to put some minor details,
the base will feature a standing figure and a small control aparatus with working
LED lights to highlight the standing mecha.





close up






simple lighting gimick





im also in the painting stage, so stay tune for more updates!

what do you think ?

I think it's complete crap.  :razz:  I would be happy to take it of your hands.   ;)

It looks great man.  I love the little pilot at the control panel it will really give it some scale.

Excellent display base!  I can't wait to see what these different color lights do to all the sweet details you added to the design.  Fancy lighting always seems to bring out the best in even the most subtle details.

thanks guys for those warm and interesting comments. :D

hi guys!been very very busy lately, my PG update is sure is slow.
im in the decaling stage at this moment, and will be putting more.
i'm still outsourcing some decals to fit in the strike and the launcher gun.
it's a coincidence that the color scheme my client pick has somehow some similarities
with master erix pg strike..woah!..anyway, mine is a bit darker in shade and the grey tone is
a bit darker too with white mixture.i hope i can decal this kit and finish it
before the month ends because i want to start another for my own.
enough blah blahs..onto the pics!

Sorry for the Grainy images, too much image enhancement  #-O  @-)
Other metallic parts and accessories were not shown since it will be finish in
matte, we dont want to take away the bling bling effect do we?  :P

gloss coated/panel lined :

Thundersub!!!


thats it for now guys...wheew!

Dude, very very nice.

Do you hand paint the small details of the inner armor?  I know some airbrushes can do super fine work but I'd be interested to see how you handle them. 

Looks great, can't wait to see your next update!

thanks guys!i prefer to hand paint those super little items than to AB them, makes masking
a bit less in the pain.thanks again!

small updates with more decals!

first look at the shoulder...err..something..whatever it is called..
decals are from different kit, ..why not..looks kewl!
the yellow mask is to avoid the metallic finish to be oversprayed with flat
later on, some parts are not attached yet.





the decaled tanks at the front end of the BFG



an overview of the BFG, still missing parts not yet attached



here are the un-attached parts



chest decals



front skirts



arms and sides



first look of overall test fit, needs  final coat of yummy flat coat








i really need to get a new camera...hhaaaayyy..

hi again!short cut....pla struct beams and c-beams are quite expensive
and very rare nowadays thats why i decided to mass produce my own size
and simple truss design.i began consructing a simple scale member like this one
which also served as the master copy. its really hard to mimic a crsip and very smooth
resin result. :unsure:



and made a master mould like this one..make that 2



..and tada!!..viola..instant copy..though you have to wait for the (industrial) resin to cure, needs cleaning!



while producing the number i need, let them sleep in a tub of dishwashing liquid w/ water



That's it for now!

slowly but ...slow.hahah!!!

Nice.  A person can really learn a lot on here.  I also like the GM in the background.   Any more pictures of it?
