As always , i have waited for my chance to get a kit at a promotional price :D
If im not wrong this kit cost about 11,900yen
yes , i present you my Pg Strike Gundam , my FIRST EVER PG in my collection :D
Started off the kit with the legs ~ em' legs are just sexayyyyyyy xD
And yes , i painted it to a dull metallic-candy red ~ from what I have researched , I concluded that a dull color give more of a realistic image hahah~
For the legs , there are metal parts to support the articulation....
The inner frame is also painted using Alclad II Lacquer - Black chrome. a type of extremely dangerous mixture , so if you are gonna use this paint , please take precautions.
Then i proceed with the waist and body ...
Yes , same metallic color ~ (guide for this paint techniques qill be shown below :D )
Then the arms and head ...
Arms with frame painted :D
|Test fitting with Aile Striker|

Here , i will also guide you on the paint technique that i used for my PG
I will be using the shield to show how i do it :::
FIRST : give the surface a GLOSS BLACK base layer. MUST be GLOSS.
Then proceed with a layer of ALCLAD II LACQUER - CHROME. you might wanna search up on how to use the alclad paint , because it isn't any regular paint.
Lastly , do a finishing coat using any clear color of your choice :D
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT !
You can play around with the shades you like by doing the clear color layer , the more layer there is, the darker the color gets.
the Aile Striker ....(more info for the aile striker will be posted when i get my skygrasper done)
Beam riffle .... painted with matte black and black chrome ....
The GRAND SLAM...painted as well ...
Beam Sabers .... replaced with modified metal beam saber , and so does it light up :D
Armor Schneiders ..... the whole thing came in balck ... i didn't paint it , those will be hidden in the pockets anyway , plus i ran out of paint xD so does being a little lazy hahahah xD
I decided not to cover up too much of the PG details with the decals .... so only put up some of the decals
Well , my 1st PG .....hmmm~ i actually think i have alot more to learn ~ all i did was building painting it ~ how would you rate my first PG ? xD Please leave me a comment :D
