This model kit took me 2 weeks to complete with a total time of 82 hours. I never posted WIPs on dA to show the progress of this kit, but for those who wants to see it....I may post them into my scraps folder located here: [link]
Personally I am overwhelmed by the looks of this kit, despite minor problems such as metal thruster parts falling off and paint chipping off. There were several occasions where I was on a verge of giving up due to the time taken to hand paint every single part (yes I used handbrush instead of airbrush). Gotta thank a few friends especially aznriku: [link]
and HCP redsync: [link]
for encouraging the completion of this. Also gotta thank a friend (not on dA) for taking photos of this kit (free of charge) and went all the way as to use his grand piano as the platform.
New discovery is that painting this kit gives off a somewhat equal/better sheen than bandai's titanium finish.
Tell me what u guys think... ^^
The reason for this project is to mark the 10th Master Grade Kit I own in my room.
