MG Gundam Astray Red Frame

Red is always sharp enough to caught our eyes upon the first sight. Almost every leader in (if not all) popular kids tv show such as Power Rangers, Voltron and so on.. (not much in my head) :) wearing RED. Chinese like red especially in main festival such as Chinese New Year where all decoration will be mainly in red as it always symbolic to Happiness, Prosperity and Good Fortune! Ok back to the topic, Bandai release Astray Red Frame Kai after the blue version and after I tried to sell how the colour red is so special, I got myself a box of this in a warehouse sales by Litt Tak Sdn Bhd which located at Taman Connaught Cheras.


It took me a while to find this hidden warehouse,  but with some guidance from by brother I manage to find it. It just next to Puspakom Cheras.

In fact, Litt Tak is having another road show at sg wang at the same day as the warehouse sale so there was not much  variety of Gunpla model at it's rack there.

out of the box where all runners wrapped in bags


The process of cutting parts from the runners and removing nubs with paper knife started


I think it's normal for all Gunpla modeller to encounter minor cuts during nubs removing. A beginner like me can't escape from this, however, lucky me for not having any RED blood from this.

This is my second kit and I feel like trying to do the panel lining with mechanical pencil lead right after some separation parts assembled together.. the result is actually quite good.. just like how a lady looks after having her light makeup :)

Look at the makeup effect I've done with mechanical pencil lead 0.5mm (not manage to find 0.3mm)

Even the arm looks great after mechanical pencil lining. The details just more obvious and stand out.

Done with upper body attached together


comparing the leg skeleton with the leg after completed with all parts

I realized that this wood storage tray is quite useful for parts separation


Just like most any other normal version of MG, gold part usually not really gold colour plated
