MG Hazel custom is complete! This was my first experience with the Mk-II frame and from the waist down I have to say its pretty bad. The mechanism to move the legs forward engages too easy and if you use the thigh swivel too much the legs will come off. Also the hips on ball joints are the worst, this is the first ball jointed MG I’ve built in a good 15 years and I had forgotten how bad this design was. Once built there is no denying the kit looks good but it needs a lot of work to get it close to the artwork. Lots and lots of masking needed on the shields and the little yellow cylinder on top of the head were also a pain to paint. I missed a few of the red details but I was just sick of masking that I gave up on them. The Advanced Hazel is the last one I really want to do but I will probably wait until next year to work on it. Painting 3 shield boosters is enough for me for 1 year. I’m entering this kit into a contest so wish me luck!
