Hi guys, once finished the Q-Rau's nightmare, at least I had enough time to finish the Scout, Cap's version. Due I started it at the same time with Q-Rau, chipping techniques are the same (salt)
I hope you enjoy it, any comment is welcome!

Wow, I've never seen one of those built up! The second last pic of the Regult with Misa and the 'forced perspective' reminds us how big these guys are meant the be. You got great glossy finishes on the transparent domes. Nice work.

Cool8or, once again, you did an awesome job! I hurts, just a little, knowing that the copy of the kit that I have will never be built to the same level of perfection... :(

Outstanding, as always. Thanks for the pics, too - I'm thinking of converting one of my discount Toynami's into a scout. This will be good reference!

(course - it won't look nearly as good...)

Wow, this winter's salting the roads can really wear on your Regult! :P Seriously though, that looks AWESOME!!! I agree, the Forced perspective with Misa made me think "what if that was me standing under that monster!" Looks realisatic. Just add mayhem! - MT

Wow your skills have come so far since your first kits, that is such a nice build!

What colors did you use for the different grays?

Very inspring, it makes me want to bust this kit out and get to work right now.

Make sure you put this in your album in the gallery.

Dude that thing is amazing. I agree with the rest of the guys about the forced perspective. Great work.

Amazing. I think you're the most talented scale modeler I've ever seen.
Glad you take your time to share it with us.

Thanks for sharing this build with us, Cool8or!

In all seriousness, this is more than good enough to be featured in Japanese modeling magazines like Dengeki etc. Nothing short of a professional build.

As a matter of fact, I downloaded a couple of pics to use as a wallpaper.

One question, though: was this modified from a store-bought kit, a straight build, or a kit-bash?
