Strike Trinity Build Off WIP

Long overdue update post

The Strike is really coming along as you can see. These photos are a few days old, right now I'm working on decaling the unit. I remember first watching Gundam Seed in 04, at the time (and even now) I didn't really consider the series to be too serious. So I chose a really bright vivid color scheme based on the stock scheme to exemplify the ‘cartooniness’ of the series.

I used various metallic colors on the frame to highlight some of the ‘mechanical’ features of the design.

I call the mega beam launcher the 'lime cannon'

This kit really shows off panelining well, although the calf armor's panel lines are a bit shallow and difficult to work with.

Stay tuned I still have the decals and topcoat left!
