Kinda a WIP on a MG Hi-Zack. Still needs the mono eye and some decals..

All green done with Spaz Stick laquers. Gloss blk base+Mirror Chrome+Candy Apple Green+Gloss Clear coat. All other colors and frame done with Krylon or Tamiya Spray cans.
Metal mipes from Abby.Lc on Ebay.

Nice green apple Zaku. How was it trying to get a super high gloss finish?

Its a shame you didn't do better prep work. The nubs are glaring with that finish.

A candy green apple Zaku. Now thats something I gotta try. And its never to late to clean up the nubs and re paint. It would look so much better.

Damn, that looks nice(Also never seen a Zaku painted like that). How hard was it to achieve a finish like that? Did you have trouble with paint scratching during assembly?

The nub marks should have been cleaned/shaved, but other than that, everything looks nice.

Some more complete pics, finished with decals, clear coat and some metal stuff. Learned what to, and not to do, for the next one.

DM 1/100 Akatsuki

Finally finished this guy, had to wait for some Samuel Decals and then hit him with some Dull Coat.

Good job on the kit. Looks nice to me, even though I was expecting the uber shiny finish, haha. I love how much surface details it has.

Excellent mobile suits, sir! I really like that gold finish on the Akatsuki!

I can tell by your pictures that you must love shiny mobile suits :D

Well the Akatsuki is actually dull coated, but the lighting blows with a desk lamp so even that looks shiny. The Zaku hasn't been dull coated yet, it was also my first try at using Future for clear coat. But generally, yes I like the shiny, after years of dirty looking flat coated 40K minis, making things SHINY is a fun change.

Finally got around to building a decent light box to take pics in. I think the results are way better than what I was doing before.

MG Gouf with NeoGrade conversion..

Holy crap, that is one mean-looking Gouf. The color scheme gives it a much more intimidating look. Amazing work on it, man.

Only gripes I have are the seams on the top of the gatling gun (on the rounded areas).

May I ask where you got the gatling gun?

I think this is a point that being applied to your builds, MuGGzy, would really take them to the next level. A bit more prep work before paint to make sure there are no errors, would really help. You can see in a few areas, there are uneven levels in the resin, where the molds met. Some putty and sanding to even them out would remove that. Its something that happens alot with recasts.

Other than that, the colors look awesome and this really makes me want to work on mine! I love the gradient on the sword!

@XX, it comes with the conversion kit.

The gun comes with the conversion kit. It converts an MG Gouf 2.0 to the Gouf Custom.

Edit: Squee beat me to the punch...grr.

Thanks, Squee. :)

My latest project completed.

Magic Toys 1/100 RX-178 TR-1 Hazel Advanced
Painted it up in "Titans" colors since I think I have too much white in my display case.

Nice. How was the build? solid?

I was very impressed, I have built a couple MC, a DM, a GoGo, and a Daban "Grey Market" kits and this is by far the best I have seen. They even had someone that spoke/read western engrish edit and write the manual so the descriptions make sense. Plastic is high quality, deff on par with Kobu and Bandai and everything fit perfectly. Lots of under-gated parts so less nubs than many kits. My favorite perk to this kit is the water slide decals, they are printed on a weird FLAT film so they don't shine at all, if you were just building OOB and not painting at all, they would look screen printed onto the kit. I can see them more on mine because I painted it with the blue acrylic but I thing a few dull coats will seal them up and make them less noticeable.

Thanks for the info. I may consider picking one up.

Wow, that's cool! The darker blue came out very Titans-esque, indeed. I'm really digging the way his head and backs legs look in particular. Don't ask me why, lol.

Colors look great! Your best work yet.
