Hello everyone,

I only had vids for my entries up, but here's some pictures as well (mind that even though the camera used was good I'm bad at photography, eheh)

First off:

HGUC YMS-15 'Gyan'
Aries' entries IMG_0793
At 800 Yen, one of the cheaper HGUCs, though IMO it feels a lot like an older HG (like the 8th MS line).

It is painted to somewhat resemble a Templar, because I've always thought the templar cross looks a lot like St. George's cross:

Which is the English part of the Union Jack, hence resulting in the English Gyan.
I hadn't really planned on using the Gyan though, but after a frustrating week with a NG Dreissen it's knightlike appearance (and pricetag, hehe) made it an ideal choice.

Here's some pics:
(*note: only one picture was taken with the flash on, but I switched it off when the non flash pictures seemed to look better on the LCD screen of the cam Sad )

And while I'm at it,
I also did a HGUC Gouf for this competition in a Dutch theme.
It also cost 800 Yen:

I've got european boxart so no price in Yen is to be found on it.

As for the dutch scheme, it pretty much boils down to excessive use of orange. And a lion. Both of which are absolutely nationalistic symbols here, even though they're not apparantly dutch in any way.
So here's the story behind the two:
Orange comes from the name of our royal family (Van Oranje(=orange in dutch))
The lion comes from the notion that apparantly the Netherlands resemble a lion (when seen on a map)...ehhh

And that's all

@2old4toys I only did seam line removal for the lower legs as they were really noticable. I didn't do more because the Gyan was really a last minute decision.
Though I don't really do seam line removal all that much. In general I don't glue snap fit kits before I paint, mainly because I use the kits part breakdown heavily in my way of painting. As such only parts that will never need separating again will be glued, and even then only the really noticable parts. I guess I'm really lazy at glueing.
