Hello! just wanna share some of my works again. This time its an HGUC Gelgoog Marine, it was my entry for a local competition here in the Philippines (Formula 144). Fortunately it landed on 2nd place. ^_^  The kit is purely OOTB. I just changed the color scheme a bit to give the Gelgoog more "coolness" hehehehehehe! to be honest the stock colors are pretty much boring to me. so here it goes, open for comments and suggestions! :D

         

         

Thanks for viewing! :D

You have made one of my least favorite UC MS look really nice. I like the colors and camo, seems like it would be hard to see under murky water. The action poses really help the "boring" become stunning. Worthy of 1st place good Doctor. :number1

And see, the Gelgoog is one of my favorite MSs. It needs more love..it needs some Cima love lol!

I like it, the colors are good and well done. My only gripe..the lack of decals. Needs a little more eye candy.

I love the camo pattern on the shield and green parts! :D  I may have to "borrow" the style for something, it that's okay. :)
