This is from the anime "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann" 天元突破グレンラガン.
I started this kit a couple of years ago and got her half painted when I became unhappy with how she was turning out, so I stripped almost all of the paint. I custom made her gun, which is SO much more awesome than the one that came with the figure. The rest of the figure needs some refitting and sanding/filling. She's also a big 1/4 size piece.
I had to do a big fix to attach her head to her body. The way she's put together, her scarf goes on before her head, which makes it impossible to get in there and really do the seam-fixing (puttying, sanding, painting) after her head is attached. So I've extended her neck to fit over her existing neck at the bottom and there won't be any seams to fix later, since her neck doesn't really go down enough the way she came and you can totally see the seam. The problem is that it's such a delicate piece and I don't want to really adjust the shape of her scarf too much, so I keep breaking the new extension. I think I finally have it now, but I've gone through about six or seven versions before getting here.
