Hey

Figured I might as well post one of my kits for once. MG Zaku II 2.0 obviously. I filled every last little detail on the kit to give it the old-style Zaku look. It's kind of weird doing a kit where the entire point is to make it look as unremarkable as possible--the amount of effort put into it is inversely related to the amount of work it looks like was put into it in the outcome. I usually hate the anime look, but I think it came out well this time. It reminds me of Kou's quote about the GM Custom in 0083: "Remarkable for being completely unremarkable."

In before "clean your tv" and/or remarks about the other older kits scattered around it which look like crap.

Edit: Actually took some better pictures. They're a little dark...

Unfortunately I only took one picture because I had to give the camera back to my friend. I used to bother taking more pictures and doing them with proper lighting against a kit box to give it a white background, but meh, it's about the kit not the photography involved.

Not to bust balls here, but the better the photography the better the kit will be represented online. If you half-ass the photography, all of that hard work on the kit is going to go to waste. Taking the time to setup a nice photo will really show off all of the finer details of the kit, and will showcase the work you did. 1 photo from one angle isn't going to give a solid idea of the work involved.
