Oh man... You should repaint her eyes to make it look more better than it is now...

HOWEVER!! Awesome gimmick on her body & her armor / clothing. Kudos for you!
I didn't post anything about it here, but I whine about that LONG before anyone said a thing (in fact, right from the moment I painted her eyes on). The problem though seems to be partly the paint job, and partly the facesculpt itself. I can probably add some more life to the eyes, but the expression will still be this blank.

i just finished this dude

as you can see this is just a plain straight build like my other kits... but that's not the point.
the point is just when i though the golden stickers were already a pain in the arse to put on... i realised that putting the weapons in the hands were actually worse since the fingers dont help when trying to connect the weapon to the hand peg...

other things that i found annoying:

- the legs tend to fall off easily, i was already warned about that so i think i can handle that when i introduce him into my comic

- the head (and the inner eye mechanism) are a bit loose and that forces me to re-align the whole thing if i want to turn the head more than what's "allowed"

- and last, i have to check constantly for the waist zone... the springs that hold the little rings in that part slowly want to disconnect from the respective pegs, so i have to reattach them from time to time i guess.

and just in case you ask, i'm gonna leave him like that, so many stickers already tick me off...

Nah, The tracks and wheels are stationary. The individual plates are hinged so they can stick out at the front and back, but it is still better to stick them all into position.

Size wise, it is a bit bigger than my fist. Think a bit bigger than Lancamento's Beetle Mecha.

I got it from Ebay. Can't remember how much I paid for it, but right now they go for around $30 including shipping. You might be able to find it in KO gundam model kit sellers' website as well.
