It looks better in grey, but the orange is a bit much. :P

Looks pretty nice. :3

I might get the AGE-2 MS kit...

Great paintwork, I also dig the choice of colors.

Since they're very visible from behind, I suggest to paint the pegs of the ankle guards a darker color.

You know what, as soon as you mentioned it I could totally see it in the photos.  I will have to sneak back in there with my joint color and hit those four spots.  Good catch.

Thanks for the comments!  I had a blast working on this one.

I think you did a great job.  I like the color choices, too.  Very nice weathering.

I adore this! The weathering is something that I really appreciate. Does this kit house an LED system?

Looking for:

Thanks, guys.  Yes, the kit does have an LED system, and it is really well done.  The light mounts in the back behind the main thruster, which rotates for the switch.  The torso has a big white channel that guides the light into the AGE system in the chest, as well as a clear part that pipes light up into the neck.  The head has a couple of white light channel parts inside it, as well as clear parts to pipe the light from the neck into the eyes and front sensor.  It works *really* well.
