Haha thanks but it's not such a big project. It just takes me forever to make it :-)
But it keeps me interested so I don't feel any burnout.

No, it is. For me at least. It took me months of working on and off to mod a SD rx78 into the ver ka. you make entire kits out of styrene and don't afraid of anything ever lose your focus. commendable.
By the way, say hi to Chris!

Hey Ez I think the gun needs to be bulkier.  Your mech deserves a big gun.

MB: It'll be a bit bigger but I'd like to keep it reasonable.

So I primed the whole thing so far, except from the in-progress arms and the weapon. Very few things to fix up.
This gives me a better visibility on the proportions and the amount of detailing that's needed. Some places (like the thighs and the waist) have pretty much the final level of detailing (minus the rivets) but the upper torso is still pretty much blank.

Looks great primed.  I really really like the circular hatch in the torso, great idea.

Not so much, last couple of weeks were busy, lots of assignments.
I did clean up the few spots that needed it and I'm still working on the arms.
I think I'm going to use the Kotobukiya 1/100 option hands, they should be out soon and I'll add them to an order I have to make.

Been doing some more detailing. I also started an anti-armor knife for close-combat (I had a brain fart while watching Full Metal Panic...):

Most of the round holes will have rivets in them.
And I'm waiting on the koto hands to finish the arms.

Knife looks great! Needs some of those "saw teeth" carved in it near the hilt. Very nice work so far!

Thanks guys!
Here's some pictures of the new stuff:
- a cruise missile (sort of a much smaller version of the German Taurus, but just as deadly, it's the future baby!) to give the AMX some more ballistic power;
- 2 knee-guards;
- a basket to put on the back of the turret.

The missile isn't finished yet, still needs wings.
I actually added indentations on the knife but you can't see it on the pics :)
Less talk, more pics!

Ohh...  ^_^ Very nice job Ezechiel! Your doing a great job.

But the arms do look a little on the small side, it does remind me of the Xamel though.

I look forward to seeing more photos, keep up the great work.  :-)

Hi Ezechiel

This project is totally awesome. Will it have a head? I love it the way it is no though. Sometime I dont see the point for mecha to have a head. It is fresh without it. 8)

Thanks Philip, nope no head!
I made some progress on the knee protections, I'll post an update soon.
