Hello,

I've just gotten into Gunpla after discovering it during a trip in Hong Kong. Bought 1 kit and took it home to try it out. I absolutely loved it, so I ordered some more from HLJ. Did a few straight builds, and now i tried my hand at some basic weathering. I'm pretty happy with the results!
Let me know what you think. Cheers!

The kit i used:

Looks good. You made it appears as if it's been through both space and atmosphere with the fading and the build up around the parts, nicely done.

Nice. I especially like the shield.

Thanks! Yeah I really like the shield too. I took good care to not overdo it, and make it look out of scale.

Nicely done! The weathering is very realistic.
