Excellent paintjob, there's a lot of detail here. I see some weathered metal plates under the knee armour that you really only see if you bend the leg, but they look sweet!

actually i tried to give a weathered look allover but the effect is too subtle... :(

Say this is a resin cast or a custom model? I really like the mods with the riflle and the aiming device. What did you use for the lenses?

this is resin cast parts developed from us using (80% automation + 20% craftmenship). The lenses are aurora stickers which we will be included in the kit.

Hey Guys, hope you are all doing well. I (Albert) haven't been posting here for a long time. I just finished up this RX-77-4 for  AkoHobby. Pretty good one if you are a fan of the original MSV fan. Just stay tune with AkoHobby FB for the release date  ;).

That's part of the project. You will see the EZ-8 for sure by end of this year. It's half way done.

coming soon in end July. PE set#1 for gunpla detail up.

This PE is to replace rthe metal transfer that sold out a while ago. In the past we receive comment that the transfer is too shiny and that the glue isn't strong enough on semi-gloss or matt surface. Therefore we figured to change to PE and give more thickness and sharpness to the parts.

What would the base kit for the Blue Destiny be?

Sorry for late as we were tied up with some internal changes. you will need either the ground Gundam or ground GM for the base.

Like your stuff a lot.
I'm a little confused about the chisel bits.
It seems that one package isn't available until September,but the other exact package is available now,and 50 cents cheaper? Is it the .5mm set offer that makes the difference? This is something I could use.

there are 2 different things if you check out the photos :). Those are for different purpose.
It is not related to the 0.5mm set but the production cost that make the price difference.

The kit can be used on the sniper version without problem. what we are considering is to add a portable sniper rifle energy charger to the sniper back pack. We are waiting for the proto by end of Feb to see the appearance. Right now we are drawing cad.
