HG Grimorie Start to Finish Part 1: Introduction

HG Grimoire from Gundam G Reco

After a few emails back and forth with the grand prized winner of the million hits giveaway Michael; We have the subject for the next start to finish series.


I don't know anything about thi particular Gundam series or it's suits, but I really love the basic grunt look of this design. It reminds me of some of the mecha from Ma.K and of the personnel powered armor suits from the Animatrix.

Michael has designed his own paint scheme. It was originally inspired by the Black Tri Stars scheme, but ultimately he did his own custom look and I really like it. On top of the custom scheme I am also going to apply some light weathering and seasoning to the kit to give it that "lived in" look.
