Day 4 - Going Astray ... ...

It was a Thursday evening and I was really feeling exhausted from work. Took a 4 hour power nap and woke up at 2a.m. to carrying on 'working'. I'm left with the waist unit, legs and the Tactical Arms II.

The legs took much longer time than expected as I was really trying to make sure I get it right. The left leg took me about 1 hour plus while the right took about 30 minutes or so. The waist unit was a breeze to put together.

Finally, Gundam Astray Blue Frame 2nd Revise is completed and standing proud; not to mention squeaky clean too. It was already about 5a.m. and I decided to move on to the Tactical Arms II.

The completed Tactical Arms II was completed in around 1 hour and look at the size of that sword!

Did some detailing to the Tactical Arm's exhaust as Bandai left out a lot of colors (and they call this a Master Grade??; what they meant most probably is a grade for Masters to fix!). Anyway, that really took a long long time and soon it was daybreak.

The picture above shows all the various parts getting ready for the final phase of this project, one that I am most excited about; Label Applying!! However, I think I better take a short nap.

Just a little side note....for this project I bought a couple of essential tools like this Magnifying glass which comes in real handy when painting those tiny parts. The electric eraser in the previous picture which comes with sanding erasers is useful to sand away unwanted parts and to create battle damages. All from Daiso at $2 each.
