I actually did this guy before I did the Graze, but I did the photos for it afterwords. This is the first kit I painted with my new brush that I got recently, just as a test unit to see how well it works. I also based the decals and shading around the style of Max Watanabe, one of my favorite classic builders. I think this is my favorite RX-78-2 that Iv'e done out of the three HGs Iv'e done of it. I’m sure there will be many more in the future as well.

I’ve had this HGUC MSM-04G Juaggu kit dry-built for years, but I never decided on a color scheme. After a quick Google search for inspiration, I found someone who chose to color theirs like a Zogok, and bam, it was decided. This little guy is pretty cute, and the articulated snout is probably my favorite part of it. I think I need to refine the weathering a bit more, what with it being an amphibious suit and all. If I recall, this is my first fully-painted amphibious suit in my collection since I “rebooted” my Gunpla shelves back in 2008. How ‘bout that.
