Ok decided to build an assault pod for the left arm. It's just roughed out at the moment. Need to add details and plan on adding a missile pod as well.

No I used Tamiya thinner which probably why it stuffed up, anyway I've found the finish of other paint superior so I'll just stick to that unless I find something better.

Concerning the Vallejo paint. Do you add Vallejo airbrush thinner and Retarder medium before you thin it down before loading it into your airbrush? I usually add 3 drops (depending on how much paint I mix I may add more drops) retarder to slow down drying time then add the airbrush thinner for adhesion. Then I thin it down with Tamiya acrylic thinner or Windex (the blue color does not effect the paint, for light colors like white it may give it a slight blue tint.
I use the Vallejo retarder to slow down drying medium.
The Vallejo airbrush thinner to help the thin down paint to adhere/stick to what I am painting.

I usually use the Vallejo paint I have for ground type Gundams or military models kits.

What's your favourite paint to airbrush with? for me it's Mr Hobby/Tamiya for acrylics and enamel and Gaianotes (my god the colours) for laquer.I tried Vellejo acrylics but they suck bad,for instance they are supposedly pre thinned but are still too thick and turn to a thick goo when thinned (I may have done it wrong) and I will never use them again in all honesty because they are a pain and clog my airbrush and the finish is bad as well.Anyway any feedback would be appreciated as there a lot of brands I haven't tried yet and would like peoples opinions on them cheers.

So I've been working on this almost constantly since the last WIP post but I suck at keeping it updated properly.

I've toyed with the idea mounting the machine guns off of the backpack for a gun cannon type look, but I tossed that idea
It just didn't feel like a good fit. Anyway, from there I've tried to re-sculpt a few things like bulking up the lower legs and I've added a panel line to the thigh to disguise the seam line there. I'd like to think that I've made a few tweaks to the head sculpt to give it a more aggressive look.

On a side note, I'm pretty pleased with how well it can stand up on its own.

looks great so far man! Im bulding this exact kit right now myself! cool I will keep checking in on your progress! keep up the good work.
Thanks man. Been putting a lot of effort into this one. Its a pretty good kit. This being my only PG I'm not sure if this is representative of the newer kits (probably not), but its still a fun and unique build. Lots of neat mechanisms in the legs.
Also, if you're painting, try to leave the connection points for each leg section clean. They slide together pretty tightly, as I've found out.

I've now finished the legs, completing the main body. Just weapons left, but I'm going to focus on my build-off entry now since there's only a month left! Oops.
