    HMM ZOIDS Great Saber Minimal Arms Custom Paint

    I got the Great Saber cheapish and decided to do a full paint and keep the weapons to a minimum as I like the sleek look of the Saber.

    I will build up all the weapons and if I can ever get them, fit waterslides.

    I did a rough parts count and it's over 370 painted parts as pictured. I intend doing the Saber Schwalz version fully armed to go with this one. I seem to do things in pairs. For now it's complete enough until I pair it up with the Schwalz.

    It was at times a frustrating build, but all in all a good build and I'm fairly happy with the results.

    Enjoy

    LOL, yup Rx, would be confronting.

    You should give one a go Uncalledfore, if you can get one at the right price. I have been eyeing off the Lightning Saix as well. Another sleek big cat looking one.

    Thanks Squee, I was tempted to use a small amount of clear purple, but thought I wouldn't push it....... for now. lol I only just had enough Alclad left so I'm placing another order from a mob In Melbourne.

    I just can't see dropping $100+ on a kit right now.. and the only ones that i REALLY wanna do are the expensive ones (Lightning Saix, Liger Zero, Shadow Fox, Iron Kong)... tho i found a lightning Saix for 80.. I am partially regretting not getting it instead of the P.Bandai Red Frame i just ordered, but I've been wanting a red frame for a while.. I am going to Cali early next year.. so maybe I'll get a zoid while i'm out there. (I can convince my wife better if it's while we are on vacation and can call it a special kit lol)

    Yeah I'm liking the lightning saix as well. It would be perfect for custom painting with Alclad. I can get one for about 66 USD (90AUD) delivered and it's the kotobukiya kit. I still may go down that path, but you really have to get them at the right price in such a small window of opportunity. The Saix comes with Waterslides as well.

    Next time I buy a kit I will .. I probably won't be buying one for the next few months though. I just finished snapping most of my Red Frame and have another project I'm going to work on... plus I still have to finish detail work on my Psycho Zaku.

    It's really a nice kit, I'll be uploading some pics today or tomorrow into my WIP. the articulation on this thing is amazing... I'm excited to get painting on it, going to keep it pretty standard, might change the hues though a bit
