My Strike Complete…Finally!!
I’ve never built any kind of model before and decided to take the plunge with the Perfect Grade Strike Gundam. Maybe I should have taken something a lot simpler with my first model kit. But after surfing the net and seeing the PG Strike all over the place, like here and here, I couldn’t stop myself from having to get it…of course I would have to build it first…
And after two nerve-wracking days of putting together over 500 parts and wishing to god that I could read Japanese instructions…I finally did it. Good news is I’ll be buying more Gundam models, bad news is I’ll be building more Gundam models.
Strike kickin’ butt.
Wait..not so fast. Someone’s not coming back. Blades of Steel.
Putting together the Strike was no easy task, in fact I researched modelers online to see any recommendations and tools that I need in building the kit. And I’m glad I did, because without all that I read online and bought(Tamiya tools!), I think I would still be working on the legs.
But after said two days, it was all done and stickered up and well worth the effort in building it. The Gundam Strike is highly flexible and stable. I was pretty impressed with how solid the figure was. Even after i had put it into awkward standing positions and some rough terrain it stood perfectly still.
Strike with The Grand Slam
Strike thinking about taking a dip. Strike taking somone out.
The strike is a pretty amazing model, it looks fantastic and is highly articulate. What more can you ask for? It’s weapons are incredible, and the Grand Slam, the large sword, can stand in for a steak knife when needed. It’s gigantic!
The big thing for me to get over was the time that was needed to put this fantastic model together. I’m so used to getting my Gundam Fix Figuration figures taken out of the box and ready to go, but now I’ve got to have patience in order to get a kick ass Mecha. The trade off though is too high to pass up. And honestly these pictures don’t do justice to how great they really look, it’s 10 times better! Well I may be exaggerating, but it’s not by much!
I may just swear off Gundam figures all together now and just stick to Models.
