HG 1/144 Astraea Type-F WIP 02

Posted: October 10, 2010 in WIP

Continuing on with this kit, I did the waist section for today.

Just a short WIP for today.

As the same with the HG Exia and its variations, Astraea uses the ball joint crotch system. A bit disappointing that Bandai reuses the same design instead of redesigning like the HG 00 crotch system. Oh well….

Waiting dry and cleaning up excess…. Same routine….

The way the Beam sabers are placed and connected, I have a feeling that they will break easily…. At least that’s what happened to my old HG Exia….

Usual seperation of the front skirt armor.

Waiting for dry….

And here’s all I have done so far. Whoops! Looks to be lopsided.

There. All better now.

That’s all I did today, planning to finish the kit with 2 more WIP posts.

Next WIP will cover the legs, while the last one will be on the S@$%load of weapons. I hope I can stick to the schedule…. LOL.

    Looking nice so far.

    FYI, this Astraea uses a GN Drive Tau since Fon uses the Black Astraea that he stole post 00F since his own Astraea is useless from that point. Even with that said, the condensers are still green in color in the illustrations although the particle output is red in color. XP
