The next OOB build was the p-bandai exclusive Hyaku Shiki CRASH. I built both the original parts and the new ones as the client didn’t know exactly what he wanted, and to finish it off I shaded the parts with clear smoke again.
At this point I was wrapping up the commissions and wasn’t interested in any big builds so I was only accepting OOB builds with only slight paint applications. The first was the Lightning Gundam and paint wise I only shaded the gray parts with a bit of clear smoke.
I’m a big fan of the modeler Naoki and I was so happy to see Bandai employ him to do some designs for build fighters, so when I got a request to do the Lightning Zeta I jumped at the chance. The Lightning Zeta is basically a refined version of the heavily modded Zeta Gundam Naoki did many years back and after doing this commission it remains a kit I plan to do for myself in the future.
