Drafting a soldier

A day after Arissa(NOT marissa... sorry) was born, I bought this little guy to commemorate the celebration of her birth. HG RGM-79c, this time along with some new spray cans arsenal, took me 3 hours of snap fitting, wet sanding(does wonders, it does!) filing, and more sanding, this guy was done in no time! This is the 1st time I build a mass production model, I'm calling him Sarge! I skipped WIPs hew hew hew...

 So Sarge is done with all the panel lining...

Sarge: Soldier!!! Why is this table a mess???
me: Hey! Who you calling a soldier?
Sarge: then who the heck are you?
Me: uhmm... Commander
Kampfer: self proclaimed bastard...
me: OII!!!

 Articulation is somewhat ok by me, a little modification to the front skirt, and it was time
for decals!! this is also my 1st attempt to do a full scale decal with stickers
and dry transfer

 And his all done!

 And also... top-coated!!

looks like all the decal was painted to the body, sweet!

 Sarge got a good thing going there

 Unfortunately for him, that's all the extension limit of what his legs can do,
but very quite balanced.

 And he's also ready to have a CQC


note: bad photography session, I used a sony alpha 220 instead of the usual canon... ugh....

"Sarge"... Such a fitting name for him. I'd bet that my old HGUC Zaku-II (not the F2 ver) would like to meet him and have a soldier to soldier talk. XD

BD: haha lets have a video conference soon with them

GG: that I did, with a brand name of RJ London, clear dull lacquer,if you do have it, becareful with it, the liquid composite is kinda heavy, so keep distance of spraying XD
