Looks good. Is that the original casting?

cool! I've got one too so I was wondering. Weathering and colors look great. Might be a little too many random but somewhat equally spaced chips for my taste. As if it was pounded from all sides at once by rocks to chip the paint. Other than that minor thing it's really nicely done.

Ah, although I'm not too fond of the Kondo-Esque style of the mech, I can appreciate good craftsmanship, and there is plenty of that in this kit. I have to agree with FFoo on how the edges look fairly clean for how weathered the kit looks. I love the rusty worn out feel of this, and think the snow diorama looks awesome.

There are two things that I noticed, however. One... for how much snow is on the ground, this mech is remarkably snow-free. Though you could argue that the head of the mechanical parts and the fact that it's moving brush the snow off. Second is one of the feet has some toes sticking out, and it makes the model look like it was just placed on the base, maybe if it was wrapping it's toes into the ground it would work? Ah, but those are very minor details and they don't take away from the build.

As for the things that are great? Too many to list, but the things that really stand out to me are the rusty springs wrapping the torso, along with all the oily and rusty looking wires and internals, it really looks like it's been in commission for quite a while. An overall excellent build, can't wait to see more work from yah.

This month's contest is going to be very interesting, there has been so many great builds.

Hi Mac
as I told you you've done an excellent work in painting chips, tones quality, washes and details.
Probably the best of your works in my opinion. Yes I've noticed toes sticking out too, but the rest is awesome!!
What I don't like is the subject, what is this ugly-chickenish rough mech from???? :D :D
Excellent work as usual, my friend!

Wow, just saw this now.
Extremely nice! Excellent build of my all-time favorite model!
The color scheme reminds me a bit of the dtk40's the-o ii (which I also liked a lot) and the subtle use of color is a really nice touch.
