    Re: Perfect Grade!!! Red Frame Astray

    What ever you do I don't advise my way, it sucks. First I get the kit, then it sits in the backlog. Then being a PG I take it down look at it, freek out that I might screw up again, put it back in the backlog for another 6 months. Then repeat.

    I usually assemble the kit, let it sit on my display shelves for years, then get bored and decide to take it apart and paint it. Not the greatest way lol.

    I loved this kit. The only thing I regret was not buying the extra parts when it first came out, really want that second katana.

    If the sword you are talking about is the "Metal sword" it is a nice sword. I got it a long time ago, I also grabbed the Tactical Arms sword for the PG Astray. The only down side with the metal sword is no extra scabbard for the katana so you are still stuck with just one sword unless you make a new scabbard, and it is too heavy for the Astray to hold it in one hand. You will need to have both hands holding it. As for the Tactical Arms, the thing is MASSIVE! But soooooo cool!

    That is strait from the Manga. He made a Katana that size. It is bigger than most ships,I think it was over something like 80 meters long. the weapons systems get a little overboard for me but they are cool.

    Personal favorite's include the Red Frame Dragon Astray and the Red Frame with Mars Jacket since that looks like a CE Gelgoog.

    I've only seen the knockoff 00 raiser stands out there. This kit is pretty stable on its own tho.

    Like Mr.JQ said there are no real PG stands. I have a bunch of thebknock off OO stands just in case, but the Astray is a really solid kit and will be fine without one.

    Maybe it's a little late but be careful when u assemble. Some pieces fit very tight together and it's virtually impossible to take apart without breaking something
