I like this one.

Nice, you've even painted the tiny RG figure (never painted mine). Is there a Freedom catching Justice in Orb pose?

The cost of buying a new tank/refilling it every time it runs out will catch up with the compressor. If you're going to use it in the long term, it's more cost-effective to get a compressor from the beginning. Just have to buy fewer kits for the time being. IMO it's a small price to pay if you want to have better looking kits.

Finished Epyon today Here are some pics, taken with my smartphone. I hope you like them

The Heatrod is pretty heavy, too heavy for decent poses

Spoiler for size:


Gonna leave the Heat Rod off the kit for now

Against Wing Zero, I will pose it kinda like that

The weight of heat rod is indeed its main problem. Still, there are some "locking mechanism" for the heat rod for it to be decently posed. In many occasions, I even managed to pose Epyon whipping upward with it. It's too bad I didn't take some photos of it. What I got is my old photos where I pose Epyon whipping Zero.

Only the RG can do it though.

@loon
I forgot to comment your photos. Excellent job! Both your Justice & Freedom look awesome!! As for me, I might not gonna applied as much stickers/decals on the RG coz I really want to show the color & design aesthetics .

Yeah, Legilis was listed to have a September release, when it's supposed to be October? I'm considering pre-ordering it from the Expo, but we haven't seen any unpainted pictures of it yet, so I'm holding back...

You've got a point there. But I just need a cheap alternative for now until I can pay for a compressor, unless there is a very cheap and effective air compressor unit out there. Also, I wouldn't worry about refueling and its cost that much.

I already tried that it out, but the connection point in the shield isn't that strong on mine, it so it sag down instantlly I only have the tip of the Head Rod in the shield at the moment and not even that tiny piece will stay the way I wan't it too.

Surely looks good, but I wouln't bother buying it. It would just look off compared to my other kits. But that's just me.
