Here are some in progress pics of my Sci-Fi GB entry, Gundam Tallgeese III (1/144). There are still a few parts to put on and a bit of sanding still to do.

The only thing I am not looking forward to is painting it ‘White’ and ‘Blue’.

Well seeing as it is a “Mech” to me I probably will paint it similar to Dixon66. Nice military colours to ensure it does not make such a good target.

Beautiful
I love the way Dixon's weaponry came out
(In addition to the mech)
Take a look at that Metallizers in action.

Nice job

Looks good so far Savage. I'm not sure about using a camo scheme. I find that the ones that aren't "grunts" (Zakus and GM's, etc..) just don't look right camo'ed. I hope you can prove me wrong though. Can't wait to see it done.

How did the 1/144th go together? I have been looking for a Tallgeese III in 1/100 for a while now, but any that I have found have been way overpriced.

I really like working with the Metalizers. I have found that they can also be brushed on pretty well too, but they dry real fast. I now use them alot for drybrushing wear and scratches.

Savage,
How's the Tallgeese coming along? Having seen Keenan's Wing Zero painted up in a heavily weathered yellow/mustard color, I take back what said about the main character suits not looking right camo-ed. Can't wait to see yours.
