Woah! Wasn’t expecting that color scheme. Nice! Ya don’t see yellow on alot of customs. Atleast in my search history. Really cool! :slightly_smiling_face::+1:

I went waaaay out of my normal pallet. Figured I would let the weathering do some of the work ??

This is the kit I’ll be painting up for the loading dock scene:

Man, you weren’t kidding about letting the weathering do the talking. It makes the wild color scheme feel natural, even for a rather out-there mobile suit like the Byarlant Custom. Another great job!

Thanks a ton!

Whoa, where did you find this? I’ve never seen or heard about anything like this? How much was it and where can I get one?

Are you asking about the kit or the diorama?

Here is the diorama kit:

I always liked the Byarlant, even though the big red behind reminds me of a baboon’s ass.
