This is my second airbrushed MG and I did a ton of mistakes! First I should never use Nikko primer ( industrial grade ) coz the paint ( Tamiya acrylics ) are not sticking to it as well as when I use Bosny primer grey ( also an industrial grade ). Second, I still suck in airbrushing!...anyways I got lazy modding this kit further thus it became a semi rush job! hope you like it! :)...sorry for dust on the kit and some blurry pics. :)

MODIFICATIONS:

- added a fin over the head
- extended the chest, crouch and the fett with pla plates
- added tons of pla plates for a layered armor effect
- filed down some leg armor parts to reveal internal detail
- added lots of holes and IC sockets
- replace plastic boosters with aluminum boosters
- added kotobukiya vernier and other option parts
- custom color scheme

I like the mods to the Hi-Nu!  Though it's not really a fair fight...  the Rick-Dom is 14 years old by the time Hi-Nu is built in the Gundam timeline. ;)
