Hi all,

This is my latest work, the HGUC GP02 EFSF type (as in, b4 it was stolen by Anavel Gato).  This was a very simple build and required minimal brainstorming.  I added 5 bits of thin circular styrene pieces, colored in gunmetal, to each shoulder to accentuate the overall look.  I also added two reactive armor bits to the breat plates, also colored in gunmetal.  Other than the custom decals from samuels, this is it for the mods for this kit.  Colorway is loosely based on the original anime colors, but I darkened the colors to make the overall feel be more menacing.

Really, this is mostly an OOB build.  The toughest part was getting rid of the seamlines on the shoulders, which requires a bit of work (you will know what I mean if you actually work on this kit)

Here are the pics: enjoy!

you're on a modelling spree  :lol:

again, very smooth paintjob, you made him look pretty while I don't like this one LOL

no problems with the big giant 2, it is the GP 02 after all (there's just a white line going through the '2', but that's the printer's fault I suppose)

The only objection I have against the 02 is that it will look odd when the boosters are tilted in the "parking" position.

I didn't see one of this finished before, so thanks for sharing. 0083 was the series that dragged me terminally into Gundam; it's nice to see these MS again.

Looks real good, clean and I really like the vibrant red. Only thing I would have done is position the shoulder thrusters decals on the sides vertically oriented.

Your work begs for better lighting.  I,'d suggest at a minimum diffused lighting from the front.  The tilt really casts the front in shadow.

yeah I am basically using an overhead halogen and a halogen desktop lamp for close-up.  I do need more lighting I am not doing my effort justice  <_<

It's good. Actually, really clean. And the decals are actually correct since the binders are always extended like that when the unit is in use and the markings are made to be visible when out there, not when it's parked. I'd say that the decals are in the correct position. And the uneven part, didn't notice until you said it. And for a 1:144, not bad. I actually like it. I wonder if it'll get a brother, the MLRS version.  :lol:
