More vintage fun, this time Char's Musai, the Falmel. Another mental health build, I put this together in a couple days and tried to do some weathering like I saw in the Real Type Catalogue. Guaranteed, it is definitely not going to be everyone's 'thing' but I feel I did well for the style.

This is the kit from 1981 and it is about 6 inches long.

I feel that the dry brushing might have been on the heavy side, but as long as you like it.  Now it got me thinking what a musai would look like in silver.

Awesome.

I don't know what the Real Type Catalogue images you referenced look like, so as far as I know, you nailed it. Maybe some scans would help. Personally, I don't like the pinks in the drybrushing, especially that prominent and in that small of a scale, but I never liked how mobile suits blow up in a pink explosion either. The construction looks solid, though, for an early 80's kit.
Trust the robot.
