The Sayla Mass figure is the best 1/144 scale figures ive modelled, took 3 figures to make but definitely worth it.
Amuro looks good too but think i need to make his hair curlier, both figures pose's i copied from the 1/35 Core Fighter kit
Needed some figures to go with my RG Core Fighter which i hope to make a diorama with.

Used Halford's White Primer which is meant for cars but from all my tests using different white primes is the best and just happens to be the cheapest.

Got to get a rival for my Type 61 Tank and what a bad ass Zaku at that to add to the RG collection. The day i saw the first release of the Real Grade Zaku II ive wanted to model the White Orge.
All the mods needed to change the space F type to the ground J type, which is really removing any verniers needed for movement in zero G.
- Small verniers from the top of the backpack filled and the main rockets at the rear will be the smaller ones left from the back of the calf.
- On the leg all the verniers covered over and a couple new panel lines added to detail up the blank surface.
- On the top of the head the antenna thinned and sharpened to what i hope will look knife edge.
All the RG Zakus ive done before ive just painted these cable parts on the sprues but as there going to be white thought i better prepare each parts properly, damn dull job putting these together and sanding them all.
Going to be quite fun adding all the weathering.

Not a massive amount of work done on this lately but have got the shoulder guard finished, cut off the spikes, filled with epoxy and then lots of sanding and adding putty and sanding again.
Started the backpack first filling any seam lines, only going to need to add a little detail to this, for a HGUC item it really got alot going on already. Also going to replace the booster with the smaller RG ones, think the originals are too darn big and having the RG booster will add a sense of conformity to all the RG Zakus if look at from behind.
