Work begins for the GM Sniper Custom

I actually started clipping and snapping this kit and the conversion kit from akocreation June of last year at one of the model build gatherings. And since then, I’ve had it boxed and just waiting for the proper inspiration to hit before I set off to work on it. After OrangeCon, and seeing John’s Spartan Sniper, I’ve gotten the boost in inspiration that I needed to get going on the kit. Granted I’m taking elements from my previous attempts at building GM Snipers; and hopefully this will work out. I’ve got some ideas on the paint scheme and this is something I’ve yet to try, so again, more experimentation. This could all go horribly wrong; but hell, it’s just plastic and paint, right? So here are a few snaps of the kit from last year after I snapped it together.

Kanu’s been in limbo for quite some time now. I was able to get most of the Nu’s done, and still got a small amount of work on Kanu after finishing the Nus, but productivity and motivation is at an all time low. At the last gathering on the 14th, I managed to get most of the torso of AkoCreation’s GM Sniper Custom Conversion snapped. More pictures and story after the jump.
