Managed to fit the mono eye as a bit of an after thought but im happy with the way it looks.



Also fixing the polycap in place to take the GM shield in the old RGC arm and removed the yellow cross from the shield.

started some paint ..... :D not happy with my colour for the waist thought, so that is going back to a red brown.
Still need to finish the fore arms, I think they need a panel line or 2 adding, and on with a simple base as well. going to try and run the wires for the LED down the inside of the legs and power it from the base, I wish I had thought about an LED from the start as doing this way is a real pain.

Getting very close to finishing this now, just want to finish that base, and redo the weathering on his feet. I did find the heavy weathering on the 1/144 scale quite difficult as I started of doing the same as I would on the 1/100 scale, they should not be done the same as I found out but it OK and im mostly happy with it now......build it, finish it, learn from it, move on.

Look nice. Good luck with the contest.
I should have mine done in a couple of weeks.
I need to work on my base and clear coat my Zaku and weather it a little.
