Just taking some test shots with the camera in different settings while using my MG RMS-099 Rick Dias as a model. This was my first ever Master Grade kit and the Rick Dias is my most favorite mecha design from the Gundam Universe.

The Rick Dias came out in the Zeta Gundam anime series and was flown by Char Aznable for the AEUG. At that time they did not know that his real identity was Char Aznable as he was refered to as Quattro Bajeena.

Building the MG Rick Dias was a learning experience for me as this was the first time for me to use commercial spray paints on a model kit. I used Pylox brand of spray paints and I experienced a paint stripping issue with it.

The paint stripping issue was solved by using a plastic primer (WINS/TOA Plastic Primer) before applying the Pylox. Of course I had to strip the paint again and that took quite a while to do.

In the end I was quite happy with how it came out after applying a paint of matte clear on it.
