>That's the MA Asparas

It's from a long tradition of sometimes goofy looking mega-big (grins) semi-robots
which are a staple of the earlier gundam stuff. It's is kindly referred to
in the list as the Asparagus, LOL!

Yeah, but the design look of it was made in the idea that it would be a bad
guy. Even its color scheme is darker than a normal gundam.

>> 4. How about the Sazabi? (Sure looks bad to me!)
>Same as question 3, piloted by Char Aznable

This is the ultimate Char MS, and is one of the coolest designs, IMHO, in gundam
history for Zeon stuff.

I paint the parts in subsections, but sometimes it has to be done before assembly,
and then touch-ups before assembling the subsections.
