Model Title: HG Jagd Doga Custom
GUNPLA Model: MSN-03 Jagd Doga Gyunei Guss Custom by Bandai
Bio: I'm Anthonybuild, a scale modeler and painter from California and member of Gunpla Builders Association and San Diego Gunpla. I've been a scale model hobbyist for about two years now, prior to that I had no experience in painting, models, or even anime. I was just kind of thrown into this hobby after discovering youtuber Zaku Aurelius, who motivated me to buy and paint my first models through his videos and tutorials. I'm still very new to painting but I enjoy using Mr. Color paints and Alclad Lacquers for realistic metal finishes. I enjoy attending build meets and model competitions, my most recent was San Diego IPMS 2017 where I placed 2nd in large scale diorama for my HG The O Custom. I hope to one day make it to GBWC.
Description: This build is my own interpretation of the HG Jagd Doga (Gyunei Guss Custom Ver) in it's original colors. I added several modifications to the base model, the biggest being the addition of the rear fuel tanks. These tanks are made from glass and filled with red food color and some detailing on the exterior. These tanks are removable via magnetic installation on the old rear thrusters. I also modified the Doga's melee weapon to be turned into a rifle bayonet, which was a cool touch i think. The base that the model stands on is an Anubis Multi action base bought online which was customized and painted into a scene with workers, a lone graffiti artist, a custom engraved name plate, and a single pilot on the top beam.
