    1/60 Perfect Grade MK.II

    D-Smith Vs. Substance Models

    Well for some time now mechalounge regular Substance and I have been planning to do a Perfect Grade build off. We have had a stuff to finish up and we are finally getting around to it. I started working on the Perfect Grade RX-178 MK.II last night and completed snap fitting the right leg. I knew PG's were gonna be far supperior to Master Grades but to say i was blown away by how intricate and just intersting the build was would be an understatement. It was anything and everything i expected and then some. I have some pictures for you guys but nothing super exciting since no mod work or paint has been done but still some eye candy.

    Speaking of mod work. i am still trying to brainstorm something but i originally just wanted to light this sucker up, but i have been stumped in my quest to add LED's to the leg vents. The leg vents actually slide in and out making it impossible if i want to keep that feature of the kit. If i decided i didn't want to keep that feature it would still be difficult due to the construction its self. I should have taken pictures of what it looks like but it doesn't seem practical, but maybe i just need to come back to it later and see if that opens my mind up a little more.

    On yet another note i am still trying to decide on my color scheme. I initially was gonna do somewhat of an Amuro/Nu Gundam rip off using his unicorn and Amuro logos with a black/white/yellow scheme. Now i am kinda starting to think i might do something similar to the MK.III but with more varying shades of grey

    So let me know what you guys think and any ideas or advice is always welcome. here is some pictures like i said so enjoy even though they are pretty bad pictures lol

    Twighlightking you do realize this is a PG they are automatically going to look freaking amazing. On the other hand good work so far keep it up looking forward to the finished product.

    I see you also suffer from the 4 picture rule lol

    Nice to see this being built, it's one of the few pg's i still want. Never noticed the snake chain for the back of the legs.
