    This is one of my favourite pieces....This was one of my earliest 'serious' works where I've more or less figured out how to use the airbrush and build a kit. This was done about two years ago, and still remains one of my favourites.

Where're the wings or the Raiser unit? You're proabably wondering. Err...I didn't have time to do them. And the PG Double 0 is a pretty clunky fella. Unless I could mod it, I didn't like the look of the wings when attached to the mecha so I left those out. Okaaay so maybe I was lazy. :P

I went with the designer colour version - pastels - and decided to top it off with a gloss coat. I used Gaia Fluoro top coat. Really good stuff that settles evenly, but beware of a slight bluish sheen, which is meant only for top-coating metallics. But what the heck I winged it anyway and it turned out fine.

The side circles on the limb joints were coloured with metallic green on the inside to give it a 'glow' feel. I sacrificed the stickers that came along with the kit. Stickers are just not my thing....ick.

Most of the decals were ordered from Samuel Decals, custom-designed. I wanted the designer version decals, in a blue that would match the pastel of the mecha. The twin GN drives were the hardest to paint because they came pre-assembled since they light up. How? Mask, mask, mask!! 

Finally, the base. It's a black acrylic custom piece which I sent for laser engraving to get the fonts and specs as you see here. And that caps this feature folks! Hopefully if I ever get down to doing the Raiser unit, I'll add it up here. Adios!
