This is my work in progress album for my second build: MG 1/100 Sazabi (Non-Ver. Ka). I got the kit pre-built from a huge 29 kit lot me and my friend split. This thread will be updated every few days showcasing my progress. It's my first master grade and I'm planning on panel scribing, metal rivet stickers, adding minor modifications, etc. This kit will be my first for a model competition. Enjoy!

Scribed panel lines, embossed circles for rivet stickers, additional plastic in white.

Added putty to cover up existing panel lines and the upper edges of the black part of the shield.

Finally settled into my new house and starting my first week back at CSU Long Beach. More scribed lines and putty work on half of the skirt. The more I work on this project, the more fun it is. However there are a lot of imperfections. Since I basically got this kit for free, it'll work fine as a practice project.

Oh sweet, the Sazabi is one of the coolest looking mechs out there.

You say it was pre-built, so does that mean it was fully assembled?

That's some good panel line scribing, although they look a bit deep.

I would redo some of those lines, they're not very even.

Sazabi is definitely one of my favorites, but I wasn't going to pay for a brand new one just to customize it. Not at this point at least. It was already assembled by the previous owner.

Thanks. And yeah possibly. It's my first time scribing and I'm not using a fine scriber like the Tamiya one.

I'm not sure what you mean by even. Symmetrical or quality of the scribed lines? Barring some errors, it's pretty symmetrical in person. I think it's the lighting in the picture and how the shadow covers the lines.

Anyway, here's a small update:

This is what i was talking about. The circled areas don't look like they're even where they end with their parallel panel line.

^I can see the differences in the end points pretty well in that photo. Are you using anything for a straight edge while you're scribing? Or maybe trying to trace some drawn lines?
