First up, more work on the Susanowo:

Leaning back a bit there Graham…

Anyhow, the adjustments were limited to seperating the hip joints a bit from the crotch. Not sure if they’re seperated enough though… The struggle for less suckage continues. I’m yet to slightly de-extend the chest too.

On a different note, I repainted the GN Sword III from the Trans-Am Raiser for my current 00 Raiser:

Just to note, I may end up retaking pictures of this when I am in a position to set up a better lightbox and whatnot for pics, but I wanted to go ahead and get these taken since that time might not occur for several months.

About this Build:
The origins of this build, and actually the builds of all of my HG Gundam 00 kits, is rather random. The fact is I’m at college for about 8 months out of the year, and thus am away from my spray booth and all of my modeling supplies. However, I really wanted a little figure of 00 Gundam and perhaps a few other mecha to serve as what I called “desk mascots.” I did some searching and basically was between the HCM-Pro and Robot Damashii figures. There were problems with both of them…
