Hey there everyone, been ages since I completed anything. Here's a little something I just completed several weeks ago. 2nd real attempt at weathering, and 1st attempt with salt technique. Comments and suggestions welcome as always. Did a crappy job taking the pics, they came out either over exposed or under exposed... Thanks Eric for adjusting them.

Really like this, the weathering looks great.

Looks like you've done a good job with the salt technique, how heavy you go with weathering is personal taste, I'm not normally a fan of heavily weathered gundams as it can lose its sense of scale (less is more is the usual golden rule) but I think you've kept it balanced and it really suits the zaku well.

Nice one!  :-)

I love it, I think the weathering really works on this, and that shade of blue is gorgeous. I really must make a Zaku one of these days, it's probably my favourite Gundam suit

Lookin' good! I like the added scraped weathering where the upper legs move against the skirt as it walks :)
