Its been quite some time since I have featured another modeler's work. I do apologize as life has been quite hectic on me these days and I don't find the time to blog about featured modelers.
So, today, let me proudly present you another work from a dear friend of mine, a friend who is also one of the legend of MAC, a man who is the champion for the customized category for the recently concluded EUGC, and that is no other then ... DECAY.
Again, for Decay, this is nothing more then a relaxed build but he did stated that this is his practice build. Why would someone with his skill need to practice, I don't have the slightest clue, but he did say he been wanting to do something that wasn't heavily modded and just stick with the original design and add detail.
As you all know, he has been building all of kits with super-massive mods and really really weathered or damage looks and this is his first time building a super clean build. He also said it's very hard to make a kit all nice and clean while adding modes; everything needs to be double check and sanded. And even when he was in the final stages, he noticed new errors that he did not see before.
He did make some minor doo-doos on this while he was painting, though. While top coating it, some of the blue color was damaged they need to be re-done. Apparently, such doo-doos are hard to control and even he himself doesn't know why that happend and how he can prevent that from happening in the future.
And as you can see this, before and after photos-
The original kit doesn't have the upper-rotated thigh but it comes with a ball joint. And if you can look at the after photo, you will see he did something on the thigh, which is a MG-fied upper thigh. He made that thigh by using the parts that I sent him. I, The hummingbird, has to scavenged my NG Aile Strike and send him that kits upper arms (biceps) so that he can have much better posing ability in the legs. I don't really regret scavenging my kit as he had made this kit so beautiful that it was worth doing so.
Again, nothing less then a awesome piece of art from the Decaying Legend of MAC, a piece of art that I am proud and honored to share with fellow gunpla enthusiasts. Here comes the photos -
And here is the really really really beautiful wallpaper he made with this finished kit, that is in my own eyes, nothing less then perfection -
Hope you all love this great kit as much as I do.
