From the builder:
“The theme of the build: Zeon Angel of Death (MS Igloo)
The base kit is the MG Minelayer.
I did extensive pla plate modifications and embellishments including a scratchbuilt Super Heat Hawk and over 300 individually hand cut and placed rivets. I sculpted custom wings based off photos of African Vultures out of Monster Clay, molded in silicone, and cast using a special dye technique with translucent resin. Painted in acrylic AMMO by MIG, I used the Rinaldi method of hairspray chipping on five consecutive layers to give incredible depth to the weathering and finished the kit with a mix of decals under oil paint.
Fun fact: I spent more than 16 hours chasing details in the feathers of the wings and reducing weight with a 1/8″ round burr on a dremel.
All in all, I learned a lot and had a ton of fun working on this build.
