Finally finished a plastic kit. Been very busy with the 9-5 and other peoples commissions so it was nice just to get something a bit refreshing in. Kit was challenging. Very delicate, but lots of nice little details and gimmicks thrown in to something so small. It really does feel like you're putting together a mini PG or MG with all the parts. Also tried some of the MIG oils. They seemed to work really nicely and I can't wait to try them out on something larger. Overall it was a fun kit to test out some new tricks with. Pics could be better...I don't hate them, just didn't get my adjustments right until this latest session. Oh well, any feedback is welcome and enjoy!

Thanks so much! Yes, I'm very excited to try the oils out on some other subjects. They seem to be really easy to modify if it gos on heavy. But, I figured I'd give the process a try on my RG Gundam first.  ^_^

I like the more grey toned armor you went with, looks very nice.

I also LOVE your Avatar...that's an awesome picture of the Gundam.
