Completing the head, I could see this was going to be a great build.I was unsure about the colour scheme, but I could see that the dark grey was really going to work well once I got these first sections assembled. I was also happy with how the darkened gold looked. It’s hard to see, but I actually missed a piece of the frame on this build of the chest section. Later on I had to half disassemble it to put the piece in place! One really nice thing about this kit is that the little detail pieces of hydraulics and the like are separate pieces that you can paint and detail before adding to the frame. I used small dots of gold Gundam marker paint on the frame pieces. All the frame pieces took a black oil wash to bring out their details. Detail is everywhere on this kit!The underside looks great with all the metallic tones. There’s just a mass of detail everywhere on this kit. I love it. And the panel lines are really well formed making the oil washes an absolute pleasure. These parts have a nice mechanism to allow them to open up. Once they get added to the main body, you can really start to see the kit taking shape. The legs are very detailed and an intricate build, with lots of small detail parts to be added. I pre-painted all the detail parts so once assembly time came it was quick and easy to put it all together. The pipe sections on the legs were all painted with Tamiya clear red over the gunmetal base. I used the Alclad copper for these detail pieces where the armour attaches. You get two nice waterslide decals which I’d added to the armour earlier, making assembly quick and easy. Watch out for the claws though – they’re sharp! The pre-painted figure for the cockpit was a really nice touch. And Liger Zero is complete! For the tail I decided to use more of the Alclad copper paint and I darkened it down a bit with Tamiya smoke so it didn’t stand out too much. I’m really happy how the whole colour scheme hangs together.I left the frame glossy for the metallic shine, but the armour was top coated with Alclad light sheen.
