PG Strike Freedom verDC23 Armor Trimming WIP

While I am writing this post, I am actually restraining myself not to show my progress on the diorama of this build so far ( to keep the element of surprise ). I made changes on the diorama last weekend as this Perfect Grade SF is not the original kit for it. Although I said I will no longer post updates of this build here in my blog, I love sharing so much I just can't keep all of my updates to myself. lol

Just a little over a couple of months to go ( October 1 ) before submission at GBWC 2014 here in the Philippines and I just started my entry a couple of weekends ago. I managed to do a bit of modifications on the armor parts and will continue to do so until I am happy with my armor trimming. After armor separation and trimming... will work on adding pla plates and panel lines to the kit.

The plan is NOT to kit bash 3 to 5 MG kits to this Perfect Grade kit and make it look ridiculous. I do not want to sacrifice 5 kits and this expensive PG kit just to try to win at GBWC 2014 ( I am so guilty of this as you can see in my old contest gallery HERE ). The focus is to create a living room showcase out of this for my new house, not a cluster - fuk of my collection modified into one kit. lol

My objective and design goal is simple...
  1. Make the Unicorn Gundam Destroy Mode look like it is wearing a sweat shirt. So I plan to expose the gold internals thru armor separation and armor trimming as much as I can.
  2. Maximize what this Bandai kit has to offer. I will try not to use too much Kotobukiya option parts, metal parts and builder's parts as much as possible.
  3. Try to paint it as clean as I can.

All the design goals and build objectives above are very difficult for me. I used to slap too much pla plates, kotobukiya parts and paint unskillfully all of my old Bandai contest entries for the past 3 years ( 2008 to 2010 ). But then again, old habits die hard much like restraining myself to post my updates. 

Hope I can pull this off though. I like my armor separation and armor trimming so far... will see my progress after next weekend. Thanks as always for dropping by! Until next update guys! Just enjoy the hobby! :b
