Gunpla Construction: PG Gundam Astray Part 1

We’ll catch up with the GFFMC in a few days, but first up, the Astray.  I finished up the feet plus the inner armor of both legs plus the outer armor of one of the legs.  Overall, for the most part the legs are the same as the strike.  We see obvious differences in the feet and the outer armor though.  I do like the dark red color of the frame, it’s really nice.  The outer armor, especially around the knee is really fat compared to the strike.  not sure if I’m liking the swollen knee look just yet, but we’ll see. 

This time around I’m going to try building the part, doing the lining, then putting on the seals/decals before moving on to the next part.  One thing is all the decals here are dry decals as well, so got to try not to screw up on the transfers!  Anyways, should finish up the other leg, do decals, and put top coat on both legs tomorrow night at this rate.

Today’s  total work time: 5 hours

  1. Good luck!

    I have a habit of taping down the decals before transferring them over, just to make sure it stays in place. Of course, I’ve lost a few here and there because I’ve applied tape to the wrong side of the decal..
