The paint chipping issues with this build caused me a lot of stress but the positive response from my client when he received the kit alleviated most of that. With that said though this build really left me with some Astray fatigue.
Another year means another Astray commission and for this one the client wanted an amalgamation of the red and blue frames. Continue reading
Finishing off the year with one of my most favorite builds of the year. Continue reading
The 2nd commissioned overloaded Strike I recently mentioned is the Dragon Momoko Perfect Strike.
For this I actually received various Dragon Momoko Striker packs and like with most third-party kits the packaging was all over the place from great to poor and when it’s poor it usually means you will be lacking some non plastic extras. The result was not having enough specific decals as well as half of the decal placement instructions missing.
The client wanted this to be a OOB build but he wanted the inner frame to be shaded with smoke. One thing that I found kind of strange was just how much color separation there was in the promo images that just weren’t there in the kit especially with the sword.
Like with most Dragon Momoko kits the build was fairly smooth except for a surprising tightness with the sword making its modular design where it can change to 4 different forms (if you buy 2 of them) unreasonably difficult. Also DM’s bootleg 3.0 hands were really bad this time around, with fingers constant popping out with any type of movement.
If you are interested I would suggest picking one up while you can since this kit can’t be produced anymore.
