My entry for this years Plamo Project WOOB :

So far test fitted and beginning mods and detailing plans, HGUC are small so doing these will be a good challenge!

I like the mesh added to the legs, but the tubes I'm not too sure.  Wouldn't it hinder transformation?  Even if you don't plan to transform the Z, it should still be part of the design considerations I think.

I more than likely wont be transforming the kit but the chain will in fact slide through the bottom and into the leg so it could be possible. It's just the way the plastic one looked really looked out of place.

Anyway update time :

Forearms this time. Added chain and modified with styrene to accommodate this.

This kit is pretty tough as it is. I worry that your chains will make painting even more difficult :P. Looks good so far.

Thanks NickM! I will more than likely paint the chains and mesh depending on the overall colour scheme I end up choosing.

New update :

http://www.ghostofzeon.com/wip/hgzeta/zetawip.html#update3

Changed the arms a little and worked on the shoulder armour.

The mods look nice, are you planning some extensions on the legs and feet?

The legs will more than likely stay the same but the feet I may widen - they are a bit too slender for my liking.

Are you serious? I was thinking the exact opposite :lol:
I was more thinking of doing them like the MG v2 or Z+ feet but I'm curious to see what wider feet will look like!

Modding the feet in that way might be interesting. Hmm. I've done a small mod to the underside of the foot (which I will disclose in a future update!). Thanks for the suggestion Ezechiel, I'll see what I can do with it.

Anyhoo,

Update time!

Added details to the rear wings and sharpened the V-Fin :

Painting time (finally).

Up next I plan on masking and painting parts again with a different shade paint to the piece being painted.

Legs have been painted with hexagon/triangle contrasting color patterns. Thoughts on the painting are more than welcome.

Great job so far! Masking the designs must be a pain in the @ss. All the little details gave it a very natural feel when it comes all together.  ^_^
