    I have done custom work in the past. Mostly repainting 1/6 figures and some minor scratch building. As a kid I was always fascinated with models. I even had a train set. I was never happy with anything I built because well, I was 12.

    Jump forward to now, a couple decades later, and a friend of mine was showing me a Gundam kit he wanted to buy. I bought one, bought some paint and tools, and this is the result. Some of these are WIPs before I finalized some of the paint details and applied stickers.

    Ded! Ffejeromdiks from the pegwarmerz days.

    I've always been a fan of you're work (ever since tim the exsanguinator!) so seeing you get into gundam is something special. I remember at one time being he only gunpla fan on pegwarmerz, with you being interested in the property only at the time for the nightingale design.

    The Sazabi you've put together looks friggin great. You made a pretty old kit look modern and premium.

    Haven't posted it here but you're custom white zaku on Flickr is super slick, I wouldn't have thought your style would translate so well into gundam form, but that HGUC Zaku II just screams dedguy, it's fantastic. Keep it up man.
