I took my time with this, about 35-40 hours over three weeks. I had to scratch build the knee joints and make all the hosing with wire by hand. The original hosing is seem infested PE garbage, so I made my own. The head is slightly raised and the arms are modified to except my custom hosing.

This is my second gundam since getting my new airbrush and my first painted gundam where I did panel lines (even so, subtlety is my game). It is also my first time scratchbuilding/modifying parts.

I really feel my colour scheme has captured the Z Gundam look. Sorry the pics aren't great, all I can do at the time. Please comment and leave advice!

Quite nice work but I think that the colors more capture the feel of the Hobby Hi-Zack in Char's Counter Attack rather than the Titans of Zeta. Some clearer pics would be better though. Keep up the good work!  :D
