RG Destiny

For the most part I stuck to the out of box colors but had to change the sword and cannon from the dark green and lilac as I just never bought their strange color choices. Surprisingly unlike the Strike Freedom the modifications I made to this kit didn’t alter its stability at all so I was able to fully realize all the poses I wanted to do.

The wings of light really make this kit shine and I can’t imagine buying it without them.

It took a long time but I finally got everything needed to finish this kit. I don’t know why but even with all the problems I had from replacing parts to the gold paint I used the experience was enjoyable all through out.

I was already warming up to the Strike Freedom design after completely dismissing it years ago but this kit has made me consider getting the PG sometime in the future.

The thing is with the HGAW Wing, the SD Hi Nu, and as your about to find out with the HG X Maoh things that remind me of the hell I went through with Plamo Color keep happening. Continue reading

I see a lot of other builders building their kits in advance then coming back to them to paint them. Being somewhat curious of this method I wanted to give working on two kits at the same time a try. So I worked off and on, on the RG Destiny and the HG X Maoh. Continue reading
