Great job Matthew -especially considering the size of the subject. I always have trouble with scale when painting in that scale and apparently you don't.

Thanks Han and Frank.
Frank, my tip: don't move your hands as far, and use much less paint. Otherwise it's the same as 1/35, but quicker and cheaper.

Positively excellent and most impressive video of what looks like a phenomenal model kit. Your attention to detail and finishing are nothing short of what at a model show should be an award winner. Thank you very much for sharing this build with this community.

Cheers,
--Jan

Jan, good to hear from you, and thank you for commenting. It certainly is a nice kit. I have a feeling that anyone entering this in a show will find themselves competing with at least one other example, such has been its apparent popularity - the first 1/72 armour kit to have its own fan t-shirt.
