After poking around some of the Advance of Zeta literature a bit, I found both the Hazel and Gaplant [Hrairoo] designs growing on me, so I decided to pick up an assortment of models to include:
2x Hazel Custom
2x Advanced Hazel
1x Hazel II
2x Gaplant [Hrairoo]
Below is the culmination/combination of parts/pieces that I found most appealing. Firstly, doing away with the Gaplant's "bell bottom" lower legs and HUGE feet felt like the best move I could make with the kit, and the swap for the Hazel Custom + Advanced Hazel legs appears to have worked rather well. I also made a gundam head for the Gaplant using the head from the second Hazel Custom kit and that also turned out relatively well. I had some issues with the sticker for the eyes and the glue I used to attach the gundam face into the Gaplant helmet, but all-in-all I think I did okay with the given results.
Only paint used on the kits were yellow and gray gundam markers; yellow on the Gaplant's arm power cables and gray on the back-sides of all the shield boosters for both kits. Also, since I'm not a fan of the Titans in any way, shape, or form, I decided to mark these models as belonging to Londo Bell and the EFSF regular forces.http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/472/gaplanthazel1.jpghttp://img713.imageshack.us/img713/3848/gaplanthazel2.jpghttp://img195.imageshack.us/img195/9430/gaplantface1.jpghttp://img545.imageshack.us/img545/610/gaplantface2.jpg
Comments/critiques are always welcome. Also considering throwing some clear coat on them but not sure if I should go with flat or semi-gloss.
