Introducing, MS-09R Rick Dom Ver. Tem!!!!

Its official! After months of work I have finished this beast. Its funny, but this guy was more work than the 2 PG's I have done in the past few months. It was a true test of my skills, and an introduction to skills didn't even know I had. Weathering is a lot of fun, but there is a fine line between too much and the right amount. The powders adhered a little too well on the white due to some left over masking tape residue. Oh well live and learn. I really like the colors and even did some extra work in the details dept with enamels (a lot easier to brush on than acrylics!) This is also one of the few kits I have ever done in a flat finish rather interesting. In the end I will say this kit is for sure a Ver Tem, built for me as selfish as that sounds after 3 kits for other people I needed one that I did what ever whim came into me head. Hence the bazooka arm lol. The idea behind this guy is a battle tested long range model. The stars on the bazooka are based on old kill tags on fighter aircraft. The sword arm is a last resort defense having cut away a lot of his armor to save weight there was need to reinforce sections to ensure no stress points during hard maneuvers and battles. Hope you like it!

Gots D.R.A.G.O.O.N!!

There you have it the MS-09R Rick Dom Ver Tem. Hope you enjoy it, and thank you for looking!


  1. Great work! The design is very original.

  2. Yeah I forgot how cool this guy is. After you mentioned it I went to go looking again. I love the addition of the cool functional mods like the propellant tanks, the arm bazooka and the shoulder add ons. The updated head crest fits really well too, and it looks like it would have been an actual variant of the dom/providence.

  3. Helmos, Thank you for the kind words. I will admit, I basically did everything I could think of to make this guy look different. and push my KB abilities to their max.
