Any Zeon kit, or any grunt Zeon kit?

Um let me guess, the name of the build (GRUNT MS Group Build: Ex) doesn't ring any bells  ::)

She's done! Just with one day to spare too...I will have pics up soon of the Nemo, it's 3:33am in my neck of the woods and i'm too tired to upload them now, but they will be up before Thursday here in the U.S.

It was a learning experience, my first foray into a full custom paint job, mistakes were made, lessons were learned, ....and it's a project i'm glad is no longer hanging over my head! To bed! Goodnight GAF!

What to say about this love/hate relationship of a model? First of all the kit itself is incredibly solid and easy to build, and it looks good. This is the most underrated variation of the GM, and the fact this GB saw a couple of them is fantastic! There's alot of things I tried to do new here and didn't exactly pan out but that's life right? Gotta learn from your mistakes!

I think the biggest flaw my build suffers from is the Long Rifle, I painted and and all that jazz....without sealing those ridiculous seam-lines. It's by far the biggest distraction, so the gun will probably see a redo, but I have to turn in my work now so no excuses! There are few mishaps here and there with the paint, and a few visible nub marks. I did attempt some sort of weathering type of shading on this kit, and it did turn out quite well....well enough of the rambling, onto the pics

Gunny is correct. It's from the MG Super Gundam Mk. II kit, The MK. II however is destroyed...it's my "Ode to Emma Sheen" i've never shown anyone ( probably because it was my first hand painted kit and it sucked so bad. I tore it apart and made it a wreckage build :P )

Ah I just love that Zeta. Awesome work!

So can we get a wrap up post of our finishers and their respective kits?

This GB has produced some outstanding results indeed. Would be awesome to see them showcased on the blog ;D

That's in the planning stages, it will be posted with the blog redesign. I will post the link here once it's ready, I think it would be cool if people wanted to tell me about their experiences about their build so I can do a piece on each model in the article and have quotes to work with.
