Awwwww thanks, though I got to say that I'm still kind of new at this. You can thank ZeroEdge for inspiring me to start kitbashing myself. He has a decent guide on modding Gunpla for parts somewhere in his thread if you want to try it out. Also, don't be afraid to get your hands dirty - unlike others who have a nice bunch of equipment (dremils, spray paint, etc.), I'm stuck with good ol files and paintbrushes and people like them.

Dunno which Natsume color you're talking about (Her Juvisy equipment which got horribly botched or her Schmetterling equipment), but thanks for Charlotte (That'd be her Hresvelgr equipment) - it took a lot of effort to get her right and I still need to do a bit more on her, the other girls just got envious. If you need any help with stuff like this, feel free to ask around! Trust me, it can save you time and cash. :)

Thats cool! ill be sure to ask questions when i try to make my own Shinki heads again. I always end up missing something like I have a way to make a mold but nothing to cast with,, or a miscalculation while trying to cast.. something always seems to go wrong..So I went back to buying shinki's again for now.

Ah, the second dec for Juvisy!Natsume, Yeah, I was pretty happy with that one but since I didn't have any top coat at the time it kept coming off and I couldn't just keep applying it and make it look worse. When I got the Schmetterling parts for her, I decided to strip the paint off and put her in all flat black for it, make it so she doesn't look naked under the new armor. But yeah, thanks! I'll be trying to upload a couple more photos if my batteries will allow it today or sometime soon.

Well, after having some parts break on me and futile attempts to break some of them, I've come close to actually finishing Yuliette's paintjob. Had to replace the elbows and biceps because they kept falling off at the elbow (I sliced off the entire peg on the first set), and since it took me breaking one of the elbow lenses to get it out and paint that right, I'll have to look into getting spare parts or getting a third kit. Maybe Seven Sword.

Anyway, at least she can stand on her own and hold up her GN Sword IIIs without issue. Observe~

Looks really nice Mobius. I think I also need to reroll my girls weaponry list and their role too. 12 girls is not easy to keep track off.

Can't wait to see your result.

Not bad at all, but something about the texture and look of the paint seems...slightly off. It might be the camera and lighting, but if it isn't, a coat of matte finish might help.

I was hoping I could get some matte finish for the topcoat, but alas, I couldn't find any - I went with pearlescent - also, it's most likely the lighting. It's nighttime right now and I have Yuliette standing a good distance away from my lamplight and the orange looks like a nice rich orange, not a sickly yellow. Thanks for the tip though!
