Finished: 1/100 AGX-041 Gerbera Tetra

So after months of learning and fun and some stressing out, I have finished this bad boy for the end of my 2011.  I learned lots of techniques for weathering on this, and while it's not as 'realistic' in some areas as I would have liked, the overall feeling of this model is what I was wishing to achieve.  I appreciate everyone's feedback on this kit, the comments are always worthwhile.  This kit was a ton of fun to build and was a design I feel in love with when I first dove into the hobby. 

I have a diorama planned for this guy, but I won't be starting it for awhile.  I'm sort of burnt out on this particular style of weathering for the moment (as you can understand haha).  I'll be starting that one after a few kits.

Onto the pics!

Comments are ALWAYS appreciated and welcomed!  Feedback is helpful too!

  2. Hi Major, you build your models extremely well, and you definitely know your techniques/tools. Kudos to you ! I really enjoy reading your blog, and being a beginner model building enthusiast, it really joys me to finally stumble upon your blog. You, sir, are Yoda in my book :)
