MG 1/100 "Nataku" Altron Custom

Hey Guys you probably can not believe it but.... I ACTUALLY FINISHED A KIT!!

I am really hapyy to have a new finished kit under my belt because its been far to long.
I am overall really happy with the way this thing turned out. There were some battles but for the most part this thing went without a hitch. my decal work could use some improving but for my first time i guess i am fine with them. I was really worried that my shading on the darker green pieces was to light for people to see it but i like the way it looks in person and thats all that really matters i guess and from the people that have seen it they can see it so good enough for me. The lighter green turned out pretty good pretty easy to see while staying subtle. Now the white was kinda tricky. Being a noob, I used gloss white on paint so it was really tough to control my shading as compared to the previous colors so i actually had to spray a light coat over all the white pieces after the i did all my shading and the end result isn't perfect but it was good enough for me to not wanna do it over.
