Grunt - 1/20 Nitto Gustav

Needed a break from working on a Nitto Krote (longest build of my model making life - and still a ways to go ) ... so I built this Gustav in just over a day because I really wanted to paint something. Built largely stock for speed (swapped out the arm joints for solder and putty, sculpted over the kit's leg joints, replaced the laser barrel with a Wave option part, fixed the crappy Nitto hand, added some weld beads and modified the hips so I can pull the legs out to paint separately), the interior and seat were painted prior to construction. The idea is for this suit to represent a regular ground slogger ... an SDR Grunt, so I'm going with a fairly 'low key' marking combination over a RLM 74/75/76 camo scheme.
