MG Blue Astray

A few changes later (like removing almost all the metal decals and replacing them with water slides) and this commission is finished. Considering the extras and when I originally received them this build went on for a very long time and I was more than happy to finally ship it out.

RG Strike Freedom (2nd)

A pretty simple build considering I already knew what to expect, the only part that gave me any trouble was handling the Alclad brass.

I was a bit worried with this one as applying the amount of layers needed for a candy coat on to a frame meant that joints would be exceptionally tight. While there wasn’t any danger of breakage, paint scratch felt like a big possibility. Luckily the Sengoku design has large covers for some of the areas that paint scratch would most likely happen, and as long as it isn’t scratched by the time the client gets it I’m happy.
