Hello forums,
This will be my first post here.

I recently got myself an M1 astray hg and opened the box:]

Looked at it and thought to myself and was disappointed with the color quality. Just like any other kits.
I said to myself, heck I'll just change it to yellow. At first it was joking around with the kit but as time went on, I got more into it.

Look is so plain. Don't you agree? This is yucky.
3129
Added details, outlines and stuff but still looks so plain. But I am getting there:]

Looks better now! Don't you think?
The black sword sword was white which I converted into black. Still looks a little bland.
Let's see what we can do.

Very Nice sir! Great to see another custom Astray as well.

I've seen some beautiful ones recently. Most of them I put up on my 'gundam' pinterest board, link in my sig.

Very nice looking. I love the way the red looks on the edges of the swords. Looks almost like blood.

Colour scheme is ugly. I like the original colours a lot too. Swords are cool though.

To be honest, when I first picked this up I was playing around with it and didn't take this seriously. But the color scheme of many gundams outthere are the same which gets boring to look at so why not change it up?:] Maybe I should do rainbow color scheme haha

I think it looks really good myself. Hell, why not get multiple M1s and paint them each their own color. Red, yellow, blue, green, and so on.

A project that is interesting and worth doing but too costly and time consuming to do.

Hmm, guys. I might have an idea for the next group build.
