MG Strike Freedom on top of Bearface Mountain during sunrise.
One good thing about being team captain on a hiking trip is dictating how much time we spend on one spot. Usually breaks are between 10 and 15 minutes. But this morning I decided to lapse a bit and took 40 minutes to an hour spot breaks.
It’s not like the team didn’t like it, because there were some gorgeous views along the mountain ridge and gave me an excuse to bust out my new acquisition along with it being my first painted model of any sort. It got pretty windy up there and I was just glad to have some extra hands available…this is my last time being captain right guys? Anyways to the model….
MG STRIKE FREEDOM FULL BURST
I love the gold plated parts that came with the full burst edition. Click Pic to Mecha Size
After building the Aile Striker I wanted to go to the next step in model building and start painting my models. Originally I wanted to get the PG Strike Rouge and custom paint it, but then I saw pictures of the MG Strike Freedom, like the one Yasser Anas found, and decided then and there that was my next Gundam.
I’m really pleased on how the painting came out. I used Tamiya Spray Paint cans and Top Coat and the Freedom looks so much better with both. The only thing that annoyed me was the wait on the Top Coat after spraying it on, it took about 3 days to finally cure but it was worth the wait.

Freedom at Waterfall w/inverted scythe blades. Freedom facing the sun.
The Freedom is a pretty sturdy model when put together in fact the joints are the tightest I’ve seen so far which is a good thing when you want to pose it on a wobbly table or a mountain rock:) The wings can be a little tricky and tend to be the biggest problem for me.
To extend them to their fullest you have to hold both wings together and slowly and carefully pull them apart, if you don’t the mechanism that controls the wings slips and have to be readjusted. Having said that I think the wings are one of the most attractive parts of the Freedom, especially the gold plating.
This pic originally had my thumb in it and I went ahead and airbrushed it out as well as a part of the stand.

Dragoons deployed with Beam rifles connected.
For my first painted Gundam, I am satisfied and regret not painting and putting top coat on my previous Gundams. But I’m glad that the first one to go through the finishes is the Strike Freedom. It’s a wonderful designed mecha with some great maneuverability.
GUNDAM FLIGHTSCOPE 03 – MG FREEDOM & MG ENFORCER(MOD) PREVIEW
After I received the MG Strike Freedom I received another one from a new friend, and rather than send it back and be rude about it I decided to make my first mod. It briefly appears in the video above at the end, but it’s still drying out and I didn’t have a chance to take it out with me this morning.
