If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know I started this kit way-back-when, but the paint job went wrong, and I couldn't get the paint stripped nice enough to my liking. Time being money, I bought a 2nd kit which took a while to come into stock.Continue Reading ››
The big guy is complete! But where to put him? He's too big for my desk and I don't think he'll fit on my high shelves. While I think on where he's going to go, let's take some photos! Continue Reading ››
Now that the main body is complete, work can continue on the arms. There are 6 arms - 2 at the front and 4 at the back.
The red armour pieces on the arms are reasonably detailed, with a nice line around the main edge that I'm … Continue Reading ››
The mighty Neo Zeong continues to come together....
I decided to use some sticky silver foil on the sections that go under where the arms come out, rather than the included white sticker. Here the front section is still missing as it is being re-painted. Continue Reading ››

In possibly what is the slowest build ever, progress continues!

I'm running out of space to keep the large pieces. Here I've got the … Continue Reading ››
There's no specifically blue plastic pieces on this kit, so small uses of blue can serve as great contrast to the mass of red.
Here on the main skirt thrusters, I uses Tamiya metallic blue on the outside, Alclad chrome on the inside, with a small amount … Continue Reading ››
The progress is not surprisingly slow on the big Neo Zeong. There's lots of masking involved as the large pieces are just crying out for the added detail that I can bring through selectively painting different sections.
These are from the front of the kit, and I … Continue Reading ››
Neo Zeong progresses slowly....
As I was already working on the fuel tanks, I decided to do a few more of their pieces. This is the base, with rockets that I did with Tamiya clear red over Alclad chrome. Continue Reading ››
