For my birthday this year, my wife gave (which means she let me buy) me a Perfect Grade kit! At first I was thinking about getting the PG Astray or this kit, but then again this kit reminded me of my high school days. I’m also happy about my decision to get this kit because of the news of RG Wing coming out this December. Would be nice to display this one beside a smaller version. This is the most number of screws I’ve seen for a gundam kit so far. And there are also quite a number of die cast parts.
The internal leg frame with it’s pistons:

Finished snap fitting the internal frame:
Internal leg frame again, I wonder what those springs are for:
Now the internal arm frame, heaps of screws here:
Putting the wings together, with all the big parts this should be an easy task. Well I’ve never been so wrong in all my life. The wires which acts as springs are such a pain to keep in place while snap fitting the main parts. They just have this habit of jumping all over the place. Took me quite a while before finally pinning those damn things in their place.
Done snap fitting this big guy, now all I have to do is disassemble it, clean the nub marks, apply plastic cement to parts that should stay together, sand again, apply primer, paint, apply decals and finally apply top coat. So, yeah that should keep me busy for a long while.
