I just finished my Rick Dias. The link for images is below. Things I did: Scribed many new panel lines, added various screws and beads, modified the bells, custom paint and decals I designed.

I love the color scheme. Subtle variation of black and white.

I've been looking at these typef of kits a lot more recently and it makes me able to appreciate the extra detail you've added. Turning the blasters is an easy awsome trick, nice.

Thanks guys. I started doing this style a few kits ago (the metal bits) after seeing the works of "Jeep" from Japan:

I'm working on a MG Hi-Zack based on the Zakus from that site. I had to redo the paint because of a stupid mistake I'm not going to tell anyone about

Didn't one of those Zakus sell for some crazy high amount?
