Hello,

it's a basically "out of box" build of the Bandai HGUC Model.

I've just detailed a bit the grabbers at the binders' end and a little more.

It's painted using a mix of Tamiya Acrilic and Testors Enamels.

The work is almost finished, so i try to condense the process till now:








Now i've to paint the Zeon base and to fix some glitches...  ^_^

Amazing!  Looks more like a MG 1/100 than a 1/144 scale model

Well executed no doubt, but the shading is a bit heavy for my tastes. Like the base too.

Thanks for commenting  ^_^

This model is more of a "proof of style", trying new techniques (for me) like color modulation and mixed use of enamels and nitro diluited acrylics.  ^_^

I think that next models will be more balanced, but with this one i'm trying to push contrasts.

Very nice work. I love the shading you used.  A little heavier than I would do but it gives a real since of weight.  Great work.
SNIFFING RESIN DUST IS FUN!!!!!!

Should get someone to move this to the completed section. I like the silver on the Zeon emblem. Much nicer than the yellow.

Excellent paintjob, but it's a little heavy on all the shading for my tastes.

All the silver/metallicy highlights are sweet though!
