Ever since my first failure at the original Master Grade Char's Zaku from when Gundam first made the import/domestic swing through America, and a near rip-off on Ebay, I've had a long standing "No Zaku Policy." After the advent of the Version 2.0 line up, I finally broke down and got one that wasn't Pink or a Grunt. Looking at the variety of Zaku Variations, the Johnny Ridden High Mobility type looked like the best one.
I've had this kit for almost a year, but have done little work on it until my August Marathon when I finally had the time and patience to finish it.
What you don't see is the paint work I did to the underside of the armor, the painted pilot figure and the color I added to the interior of the thrusters. .... I still need to paint the Heat Hawk though...
Gundam and its designs are property of Bandai. Construction by ME!
Gentlemen... Behold! Kotobukiya's 1/100 scale Metal Gear REX. I was surprised I was going to build it, but I can honestly say I had fun with this. It really is a kit for the more experienced builder with the design's camouflage pattern, but it looks great even for an out of the box build with the minimal paint needs. I built this in under a week for review on Collection DX. [link]
SUP stands for "stand up paddle" surfing. Took this shot a couple months ago, I wasn't going to post it because there was some water on the port, but decided to share it since my recent poll showed that my watchers want to see more surf shots...so here it is.

Here's a video of me and my friends having fun at Makaha, Hawaii, i'm the one doing all the filming. [link]
