Built up an old Bandai 1/72 chunky Battroid with a mashup of parts from old Gundam kits, hasegawa and other Bandai spare parts, along with a modern Bandai 1/72 Strike armor....it's pretty hdeous, lol!

Ok, I totally cheated and didn't use the armor for the backs of the legs.  The 1/72's legs are so fat, I would have had to shave the armor down paper thin just to fit it, so I didn't bother.

Definitely not hideous, I think both battroids look pretty cool.  Nice job on the custom, and I really like the low visibility paint scheme!
