This was my second diorama. As you can probably
tell, one of my favorite suits is the Dom. I had purchased several of
these Dom Trops originally for a rather huge HGUC diorama, I was going
to recreate the battle between Amuro and the Three Black Stars, since
I also had the Operation V box set. I've still to finish building the
last Trop, Guntank, and GunCannon so the idea's pretty much scrapped.
This kit was also the second kit that I used the airbrush on. The scenics
use are the same used in the Silent Storm Diorama. I did not do any weathering
on this kit, to which I really should have. There's an LED in place of
the sticker mono-eye. To make the LED fit, I had to sand it down with
a dremel being careful not to expose the wiring inside the LED. The LED
in there right now is the second LED and it's burnt out. I think its because
I sanded down the LED that caused the drop in life for that LED. If and
when I do replace the LED, I'll probably add some weathering to the kit.
This kit was given away to a friend and is no longer
in my possession.
