1/100 MBF-P03 Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L Assembly Part V

Update: Finished shots after I reworked the Gundam Astray Blue Frame can be found here.

Finished working on the non grade 1/100 Gundam Astray Blue Frame from the SEED vs Astray series of Gundam. Part IV of this build can be found here. Been kinda whacked out lately that I didn't have the drive to document the build like I usually do. This time I finished this for myself, no hassles of documenting it. This is basically me enjoying the build and not worrying about mistakes I make along the way. You will see some mistakes that I didn't bother correcting... hehehe.

Colors used for this build were: Pylox Smokey Black, Plyox Flat Whie, Gundam Spray White, Gundam Spray Blue, Pylox Caterpillar Yellow, Win Plastic Primer, Bosny Primer Grey, Gundam Marker White then it was panel lined with Uni Marker Black and Gundam Marker Fine Black. I also did some rivet simulation by drilling shallow holes with a hobby drill then panel lining it to accentuate the hole made.

My impression of this model kit has not changed, it definitely is a beautiful design that I will love to build again. There is one problem though with the Tactical Arms. Once you mount it on the back of the Gundam it will have a hard time standing up. Even if you do get it to stand up (like for a photo shoot... hehehe), eventually it will fall down again. So to be safe I placed a little box at the back of this model kit to prop it up on my display area.
