You have done a really nice job on this great little kit.
Are you going to put the figure with it.

The seated pilot figure has a bunch of problems with it. The legs aren't long enough, they don't reach the petals. The head is REALLY small. The second figure is standing, it's head is reall small also. But I have a couple other figures from the other Hardgraph sets I am thinking about mixing and matching in a dio with this. Just need to decide what would look good.

Absolutely exquisite work!

I love seeing people but conventional armor sensibilities into the Gundam space, but this is top shelf in any genre!

Really nice work, Jason!

Fantastic chipping and weathering. What method did you use to do this?

Thanks!

The chipping was pretty easy. I painted the base aluminum, then a "primer" redish color, then the green. Then used tape to start the chips. Then used various metal items to actually chip the paint, striking areas just enough to chip the green and red away. Then gave it a burnt unber wash, rain marks with watered down buff. Then went back over some of the chips with fresh aluminum.
