Finished this today before bday celebrations. I had a bunch of issues with the black paint on the box, i ended up just brushing it on with enamel house paint. Then i hit it with a satin finish. Didn't turn out as good as my last one, but i'm satisfied with it. Also fixed that broken face vent.

Its hard to take a picture of it all together due to the reflective nature of the plexiglass.

Its current resting place on my wall. This is a temporary spot as i plan on giving this to a friend.

Didn't think the Wing 0 Custom would look that amazing while being suspended like that. Guess I'm just used to seeing kits on action bases. This is like a breath of fresh air. Awesome work!

Thanks! Whenever possible i try to not use an action base, it just looks weird sticking out of the crotch like that. The last time i used a crotch connection, it was on my Zaku II MG, and it is pretty noticeable.

Thanks! Its a bit bigger than my other one, so i'm glad it won't be here for too long. I was thinking about raffling this off on my fb page lol but then i realized i originally intended to give it to a friend for a late bday present.

wow man. damn nice. i agree that not being able to see the connection really makes it look awesome. shadow boxes are epic. also no dust is a plus.

Looking good, are you planning a wall full of these?

You could open a gallery, lol.

@Zaku, yea i didn't even think about the dust aspect. Most of my painted kits are in my display case, so there is little to no dust on them usually.

@Ramiren, Thanks! I would probably make another one, but i can't think of any kit that i'd want to put in there right now lol

Very nice! Any chance of adding the seraphim feathers?

Do you have a set to give me?! lol I thought about trying to get the set, it shouldn't be too hard to track down, but it might be too crowded in the box. If anything, i'd probably use one or two of the smaller ones, but that would be a bit of a waste of all of the others.

I'm actually going to go pick up a set in a few weeks! Want me to nab an extra one for you?

LOL, no, it would be a waste of money like i said. I'd only use like 2 feathers. I could probably make my own to better match this scale, but i'm done with this for now.

I have a bag of 1/60 ones if you want it to look completely stupid. :P
