I don't know what kind of paper you're talking about, but I can see all kinds of paper being squashed by the sheer mass of the Zwei.  :doh::razz:

The detailed shots really show that you didn't go sloppy anywhere in the process, great job.  And I wasn't that convinced of the size of this beast until I see it side-by-side with the K.. :twitch:

Yowza, that's big!

Looks fantastic. It's like a giant cluster of complicated components coming together to form an uber-mecha. As low-brow as that observation probably came across, I really love the overall look of this beast.

i really really love this model, but one aspect of it really irks me, and i hate to bring it to attention in lieu of all the hard work and effort put forth to bring this project to fruition, but its gotta be the nonchalant pose that its in. if it were crouching with a wider stance it would look alot less like a fat lady in black pumps standing on the corner, all dressed up with nowhere to go . that said, amazing paint job, and the color selection is really quite top notch!

As much as I would have loved to pose it any way other then what I did, the design of the kit doesnt allow for it. There are no joints in the knees, and with the sheer weight of the back you have to pose it the way I did just to keep it standing up. I literally spent a few hours trying to figure out how to pose the thing before I started painting it, and the only one that really allowed for it to stand properly is the pose it's in. There really isn't much you can do, the arms don't move at all (a little bit side to side, but nothing front to back) so the pose it's in is what you get.

WOW. That's amazing. I absolutely love the Xeku designs. I can't imagine how much work went into that. It's really incredible, great job. Having just edited/released Sentinel in English myself I'm especially partial to it. It's big, but not over-cluttered and still elegant. Awesome job.
By the way, say hi to Chris!
