    Mate you mean to tell me you haven't seen the Nillson Works Astray! It's more a 1/60 scale MG but it looks soooooooo much better the the Bandai one I just sold.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    You had the PG and this one is better than the PG?? Mine sadly is still in the box untouched. But I do have the Tactical arms for the PG. Just not sure if I want to pay $80 just for a sword, well actually just a scabbard I have 2 metal katanas for the PG as well. I do notice that the Nilson has both swords on one side. I want to put one sword or each side like the MG or the Manga. I might have to do what I was dreading. I will have to scratch build the attachments for the right side, and make a scabbard.

    I'm not sure if it's better, just better looking. Yes I had the PG and never built it as I wanted my PG to look like the RG Astray and didn't know were to start, then along comes the Nillson Works Astray and problems solved. A 1/60 that looks more like a MG and RG mash up. It's not got the parts count of a PG kit but it's got all those lovely RG details. The down side is it's got so much detail I'm struggling to find were I can mod it to make it my own.

    EEEEEEEECK!! He's naked! Hide the children.

    I like the darker red with the bright red you did on the frame, or is that the color it came in?

    It's just the plastic but you get outer frame runners in 2 colours so you can mix and match....

    Dry fitted this together tonight..... It's going to take a bit of work.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    Is the material PLA, or ABS? If its abs, you can do a acetone vapor bath to help blend the layers.

    It's PLA so not sure how I'm going to smooth it out, filler or sanding the hell out of it. I think it might end up being a combination of the two. Any filler recommendations for sticking to PLA?

    A blue frame to the same standard as your red frame would look great together but this 1/60 is a nice looking bit of kit.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    I gotta get one regardless. lol It does look good I see they also sell the Daban blue frame MG. One can't just buy one item.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Rpc, It comes with a set of waterslides? Any chance you could put up a pic of the waterslides? The more I look the more I tend to agree that this Astray version proportion wise does look good.

    This has peeked my interest big time although I still plan to get the Astray Noir and a blue frame to complete my 1/100 Astray "seed" obsession. Does the obsession ever go away? lol

    Sad to inform you, but no it is terminal. Once it is in you it is there for life. There is no known cure for this affliction. Also a long and personal study has shown that having the full set. Red, Blue, Green, and Gold dose not help. This only aggravates the symptoms and the feeling of needing one more never goes away.

    Mark you might want to keep an eye on these two sites as well as Amazon. As I find them cheers most of the time.
