I'd been keeping this WIP a secret for quite a while because I wasn't really sure i could pull it off, to be honest.
Fortunately, it turned out pretty well. Among all my custom builds, this is definitely up there in the favorites category.

DUDE!!!!!! I wish you hadn't kept this a secret!!!! This is sooo cool. I would have loved to see how you made the striker back pack thingy. Really nice build. Shame on you for hiding this build. Now we missed all of the cool parts :( the only question I have is, isn't the ROUGE Pink? and your looks white so...... Other than that great work.

Very nice!!! Funny that I am such a strike fanboy and I don't own the RG Aile Strike

If that's the case, I made a thread in the WIP section recently so I'll put it up there once I rummage through my old photos.
As for your question, this is supposed to be the "Kira of the Skies ver." from episode 39 of Gundam SEED Destiny.
In that episode, Kira borrowed the Rouge from Cagalli and sortied in the Strike's colors
except for it still having Cagalli's insignia on the left shoulder and the optics being green.

Cool I will have to re-watch that episode. I don't remember the perfect strike being in the show. But it has been a while since I watched that series.

Well, it wasn't originally in the show, actually. They retconned it into the Battle of Orb in the HD Remaster.
The same was done for the Strike Rouge Ootori in the SEED Destiny HD Remaster where it completely replaced the Aile Strike Rouge in the Second Bloody Valentine War.

The new camra is working out well I see. I like how you added the main carrier behind in the picture. You can just see the M.E.T.OR. units sticking out from the sides. Great kit. What size is that ship? that thing loos huge.

i just edited the Rouge in, ahah.
the Eternal is in 1/1700 scale; not very big at all.
it's wingspan is only around as wide as the Ootori Striker's

I have seen the Eternal for sale and I want it, but at the same time not sure about it. Is it a good kit? Just how much detail does it have? and are the MS that come with it just to damn small to really paint with any real quality?

I definitely had loads of fun with it. It's only molded in white and pink, so it'll need a bit of paint. That being said, Bandai has been very conscientious in keeping the gates out of sight, so I hardly had to stress about those; it's hard to believe it's a 10-year-old kit. If you don't mind a bit of painting, I definitely recommend it for a mental health build.
The figures are tiny though! The METEORs are so small, I actually used a needle to paint them. As for the MS...well, I didn't even try. They're just about as tall as 1/144 pilot figures. I suppose I'll paint them as detailing practice, but definitely at some other time.
