As much as I dislike the general appearance of those knightly SDs, you really pulled this one off. Looks very nice. I'm sure the masking was quite a pain in the ass for the gold but looks great!

Why the sticker on such a nice paint job? I gotta second Foo, the SD knights are generally ugly with a few exceptions. Yours is an exception.
"Don't tell me. You're from outer space."
"No, I'm from Iowa. I only work in outer space."

Thanks for the comments, guys. I really had a difficult time cutting the masking
tape for each curve... but the end result was worth the effort.

@chaos_theory:
Yeah, the sticker eyepiece wasn't exactly a good thing I did to the kit.. but I entered it in the Mecha Pinoy in-house contest and I need to beat the deadline... how sad :(

Here is the masking part of the sword. I hope you feel the pain. LOL

I have to agree with Kinzaa, its one of the best SD/Musha I've seen and it inspired me to buy and build them. :D I think the sticker eyes was not that bad, for me it complemets the gold parts of the kit, and the application was great too! ;)
