I present Hyaku Shiki GPB Custom BYAKU Shiki
This is basically a re-color of the Golden Hyaku Shiki of Quattro Bageena (CHAR, uhh, BAGEENA - that sounds something.... green..). Byaku came out in the anime GunPla Builders - Beginning G
Not a single care if this IS Char's MS or not (well, sort of) but since it is a limited kind, it was an insta-buy for me. I was able to get this for 800 bucks. Good deal :)
Starting off, 360 view ~
Byaku's few armaments. I've painted the saber clear red (it was originally transparent yellow)
This kit is a brick. Not much posing for this guy - though he looks awesome! Also painted his eyes (shades) with bronze and mixed it up with clear red to get the orange-y effect. The foil sticker black was a bit boring for my taste
Maul Byaku lol
My Newtype senses are tingling!!!
Oh shi..... AMURO YOU SNEAKY BASTARD!!
Looks good out of the box
Limited Ed for cheap
Brick - not much articulation. Quite understandable for a re-color of a relatively old kit.
Re-color - it could have worked if they tweaked a little bit to improve its articulation
I love this kit really. A bit biased judgement since this is Char's MS no matter how you look at it. Byaku Shiki's eyes is a funny (but cool) depiction of its pilot, Quattro Bageena's signature sunglasses. I'm pretty sure eventually I'll get HYAKU even though the articulation is abysmal. Collect Zeta START!
Meh, an HG kit. SO YOU ARE SLACKING?!
No I am not - I've already started painting the SD Zeta:
Hoping I don't mess up XD. I plan on doing a Karaba Assault scheme so wish me luck!
SD's progress has been halted to pave way for the G-SHOT competition. An HG 00 Raiser is in the works and would be custom painted to again, join an HG 1/144 friendly build-off @ GFP. For G-SHOT, I will be eyeing to join the straight build category. Details here: G-SHOT 2011
