MG Strike RM Complete


Considering how popular Gundam Seed was its surprising that this is the first time I've ever built a 1/100 scale Strike Gundam. The Strike RM is a fine kit with a good level of detail, a sturdy design and excellent pose-ability. I also really like the fact that the old Launcher and Sword packs still work for this design and can even be combined with the Aile pack to make the Perfect Strike.

Modeling Process

This Strike RM is fairly simple in terms of modification. Most of the detail work on this kit was accomplished with masking to add color separation, detail brush painting to highlight certain features and use of an option part behind the clear head camera for added detail. I also flipped the shoulder armor around to show off the side with more panel lines and other details. I also made some changes to the decal layout of the kit by taking the less is more approach. My opinion of the stock layout is that it's simply too busy.

I recently received the Duel in a trade on Reddit, It's only decayed, line and top coated by it's  previous owner. I plan on stripping and painting it eventually.
