Some build pics of my P-Bandai RX-78-1:

I'm going to experiment with encasing a yellow LED in the head and using fiber optic to project light on the back of the eye piece.

The kit is close to the old MSV reference, except the outside of the forearms should be smooth, and the shoulder armor needed cut down. I boffed up the kit shoulder armor, so I took unneeded replacements from a GM 2.0 that I will turn in to a GM Light armor in the future.

Thoughts? ...

Me to the original colors are way better. Apparently they only changed them to the current ones to sell more toys. This color scheme is way better.

This looks great so far! I agree with the colors, the RX-78-1 and the RX-78-3 are better colored in my opinion.

Looking really good man. I'll echo what everyone else said. Color scheme on the unit 1 is so much better. The work you did on the frame looks great.

I drilled holes into the inner head frame behind the clear part for the eyes. Then painted the inside of the head white. And trapped a 3mm LED inside. It provides a nice glow to the eyes.
