Totally jealous of the kit...

Is it just how the photos look on my monitor or is that main color quite a bit tilted to the green end of the spectrum (versus the usual Kapfer blue)?

The frame is done. I faced a issue with the knee jonction which broke. It almost exploded when I manipulated the leg .I didn't noticed  at the moment. I was lucky the part was still in one piece. I fixed it and repaint it.  I did a test fit with the les parts I already prepared last february .It seems to work fine. Il will have to had magnets on the right legs that's all. IRL the paint is satined not so gloss and doesn't seem lumpy. Now I hope the Blue green will work fine on the whole kit. Stay tuned.

Looking really good nico  8)

I agree. I like the internals a lot. I like the way you have added some variation in color on the frame.
The Kampfer armor looks pretty cool just light colored with that frame too.

Looking great Nico.  The details look very nice.  Did you hand paint most of the details or did you mask everything?  How is the armor fitting?

Thx to all. I guess this frame was the easy part.  Almost all the details were hand painted. Grey white areas were masked. This is the first  release of the kits frame is made of white résine and not good as I could have expected from GS.
The armor fits pretty good on the torso and harms but is was a pain on legs. I had lot of work on legs but it seems it will fit now.

Yea, being as this was the first kit to utilize the new frame they aren't nearly as refined as the newer releases. You figure this release is almost 4 years old now.

Looking good so far though. Really like the teal color you used for the feet. Looks great.

Looking great so far bro, sorry to hear about the trouble with the frame.  I was actually considering getting this one eventually - do you think I should despite the design oversights?

The newer releases come with the updated frame so I don't think there would be much of a problem with the kit.

Thx for comment. Actually everybody seems to like this color. I'am not going as far as you do on you own building. I mean I didn't prepare all pieces as you usually do.

Yes the next generation of frames are fra better from the first release .This kit was one of the first to be release with NewG frame. Now you can check steel Mark Wip and see his work on the new version of this frame http://fichtenfoo.net/forum/index.php?topic=5921.0

I think I will by another kit with a frame in the futur.  Building big kits is very exiting.

Looking good nico!

Only thing I've noticed on the leg decal is 'Zeon' is spelt wrong with an 'i' instead of an 'e', is that intentional?

Hi dudes, here is my progression on the torso and the arms. For those who own this kit I must tell you that the shoulders are a pain to build.
