Finished shots of Quattro Bajeena's Rick Dias

Finished assembling the Rick Dias that I was building a few days ago. After we got some good weather around my parts, decided to take some still shots of the completed project. I decided to skip the decaling step and just leave it as is, without its AEUG markings.

During the build the chest and other black pieces were supposed to be colored a dark shade of brown. After watching however the first few episodes of Zeta Gundam again, I noticed that the Rick Dias flown by Quattro Bajeena was actually colored black. Either that or my copy of the series is bad... hahaha, which I doubt because its a DVD. Because of which I decided to re-color the brown pieces to black.

So without further adieu, here's the finished product:

Legs and majority of the red parts of the Rick Dias were painted with Pylox's Fire Red which gave it a glossy look, which was accentuated further with the addition of some hand painted Future clear floor wax.

The internal parts and frame were painted with Pylox's metallic graphite color. Here's a shot of the underneath of the front armor painted with this color.

At the shoulder armor, the float thrusters peak out. They too were colored with metallic graphite.
