Here is my latest effort.  Our local club had a contest this month.  The idea was to go to our LHS for a meeting on Oct 2 and buy a kit and have it finished for our regular meeting on the 20th.  So I found a Bandai Gundam kit.  I've never built one before.  I don't know anything about the Gundam series and I decided that I really didn't want to just build it out of the box.  I thought it would look good as if it had been shot up pretty bad and barely survived.  Here it is.  Finished it yesterday and went outside this afternoon and photoed it in some natural light.

Nice one Ed - lovely paint and damage work there!  :thumbsup:

Small suggestion: why not modify the stance so that the rifle butt is dragging behind it on the ground? That would make it look as if it was just about putting one foot in fron of the other....

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

I tried this approach, but the model only has limited range of motion and it would have required major surgery to get this stance.  Not something I wanted to do for a 2 week build.
