I have not been posting completed kits here for a very long time because I think my work is amateur compared to the experts here in this forum. But after gathering enough courage, I finally decided to post it here to let ppl see and is ready to take comments so that I can further improve for future kits.

Here is my first completed kit for 2008. It is the kit with the most mistakes and scratches so far.  :doh: So put here for all to see..

This is the first time I used Flourecent colours!! I used them to mixwith pink and red to try to achieve a more shiny look in flat. Looked like the effect is quite disappointing. And adding flourecent actually flatten the colour very much. So 2 coats of gloss was required to bring up the shine. Of cos, all these ended with a good spray of Gaia Flat (after decal and wash) for the final finish. And All I could say is...

Gaia Colour Flat is more superior than Gunze's in all ways.

OK bombard me!!

I'm beginning to think that Gaia Colour is the world's sexiest paint next to Alclad. :D  I think this is an awesome job, which parts did you use the flourescent colours for though?

I mixed it into the pink and the red...  and it really flatten the colour down, so I have to like spray 2 coats of gloss to bring its shine back!  :twitch:

Ahh, I see...  Gaia florescent pink is CRAZY strong unmixed, I used it on my Exia... X_x  Nice to see it tones down well, I might try that for the red on my Force Impulse, I really like the look of your kit.
As for the flat coat, does it come in big bottles?  I didn't notice any in my local hobby stores here, just the EX-Clear.

Finally some love for the gelgoog. This is very beutiful in fact, I think you are maybe to hard on yourself. The colors are great, the shading is nice and subtle and the panel lines are excelent.  The blue shield just feels out of place, Maybe yellow would have fit better. Just my useless opinion. Still the shield is painted well.

It looks like he was just going for slightly color variations on the standard Gelgoog scheme, in which case the shield is meant to be that kind of dark blue colour IIRC. :)

I never did care for the blue shield or the gelgoog shoulder armor. Ugliest shoulders in all of zeon. The yellow shield would just mirror the beam staff IMO.

This is good build, even if you are not a expert modeler, the model turned out good, I like the way the colors came out. May be I will paint my Hazel Red like Char's Mobile Suits!!!

Good job!!!  :-)

Nice to see you back! Miss the WIPs! The new works look very nice and clean. Generally I dislike shading, but yours is excellently done and quite clean. As for you not posting because you don't think you're talented enough, you seem far more talented than you give yourself credit for and there's many here that can learn from you.
