Looks great! Loving the extra details and such. The multiple shields rock.

Looking forward to seeing it in person on Saturday. 8)

A little over-weathered for my tastes, and the head has a distinct Zeta feel to it (dunno if that's a good or bad thing)...  But, overall it's very well done - the extra shields rock, and the custom weapons are great too...

I think the thing has a real MSV look to it.  The head looks sort of GMish to me, and from that perspective it's a bit perplexing.  (In other words, because I associate some parts with "Zeon's Gouf" and some parts with "Federation's GM" I generate the idea that the parts don't match.  I am trying to see it outside of that context, however.)  Anyway, it's interesting.

What's with the fluid-filled fuses on the hip, though?  I'm not sure what to make of them and it makes them feel out of place.

thanks guys,

hoping it transports well this weekend....with all the extra parts...she's a little heavy and there are multiple areas that have "sensitive" areas that can be broken easily.

yeah
prob is over weathered in retrospect.  i'm still learning.  wanted to try out all these techniques.  but i had fun with it.  we likely never go THIS weathered again.

zeta feel?
the head is Dijeh influenced...not GM (ev'body thinks GM when they see it).  

the fluid filled caps are ammo for the wrist mounted tri-barrel gun (not sure the name).  look though the pics and you'll see that there is an operable door to the gun and one pic shows the Gouf "changing" the ammo for that gun/door/ammo.

is kinda "different".  STILL not sure i totally like it....but i like to experiement ....i like to try unorthodox concepts...in instances like this.
not a big fan of "rust" on mecha.....cause i would think futuristic metals wouldn't weather like our current ones....likewise...perhaps some future weapons use a fluid/gel ammo?

i digress.

The fluid filled canisters - I thought they might actually be some sort of flare or smoke bomb - since it's a command Gouf, it might use the smoke bomb to command the troops (an all retreat, EVAC at this spot, or regroup at this spot) type thing...

when your MS has a thirst...try new blasting blueberry, apocolyptic apple, or strong-arming strawberry.

Looks really good qc, it's apparent that a lot work is put into this.

The head is most interesting.  Like tet said, I also sense some sort of GM influence.  On some pics I find it a bit big...well not exactly big but large in proportion to the rest of the body.

Maybe the gouf flat head has biased my observation.
