WIP: HGUC Palace Athene part 1

HGUC Palace Athene is one of gunpla which very special in designs. One of my favorite. Was planning to build it for my personal entry in Gundam mid year challenge 2013 in Malaysia, but due to my packed schedule, can’t complete it in time. Been rushing it for 2 weeks plus, sleepless weeks, although can’t make it in time still will complete it for next round of competition.

The only design i don’t like is the skirt armor, the butt look fat. So to reduce the ‘fat’ looking, i lengthen the waist and rebuild the skirt armor, scratched build the rear skirt armor. Even replace the ‘fat’ pipe into double pipes.IMAG1130IMAG1028IMAG1170chestAdded some details at shoulder armor.
