We left the Sazabi with the frame painted, but with only a couple of armour pieces that need to be assembled into the frame completed. These pieces also served as a test for the three shades of red I was going to use:
I'm sure the question you're asking is "Why Sazabi? Didn't you already do one?" Well the answer is that a friend asked me to build one for him, because he really liked how I did mine.
