Aaaah, what the fuck, Astray?!

That's the third time a part breaks on me in this kit, and it's the second time for a hip joint. I've glued it back together, but I fully expect this fix to be a failure - after all, this joint is bearing a lot of load. If this fails, I'll repurpose the whole thing, as I'm not willing to order yet another set of replacement parts. :(

Am I cursed, is the design borked or was it a dodgy series? Anyone else had unfortunate experiences with MG Astray Red Frame?

Any ideas what to turn it into if the fix proves futile?

Haven't built the MG yet, but the RG gave me so much trouble and broke so many times that I eventually said "fuck it" and made it look like it got its arm shot off.

PSA: If you're using my aib2ofx, use branch 'next' for the time being. AIB decided to run an interstitial about their new logo every time you log in :(

BLAM!

When I started putting together this PG, I wanted to assemble the skeleton first and do some posed photos. Turned out there were few pieces of armour that had to go in at particular stage - so right now I'm just putting together the main unit, armour and all. Then I'll take a break before weapons and the support unit, to avoid burn out :D The assembly is going rather slowly, as there's three sanding phases, instead of usual two. Plus occasional polishing with Tamiya's compound.

The photo below is only slightly outdated compared to the current state. That was the moment when I've finally connected together all basic limbs.

Almost there. Just the backpack left, and then taking a break from this PG.

Dust is the bane of this kit - if you get any under the transparent parts that snap in, it'll stay there forever.

So far the primary impression from the build is that PGs are bit too large for me. I'll pause for an HG or two, not sure yet whether it'll happen once I'm done with the other arm, or after putting all armour on.

This is both exciting and disappointing at the same time. Exciting because finally Bandai noticed the overseas market. Disappointing, because the selection looks bare and non-p-bandai-y.

I'll be travelling over the next two weeks, so I've decided to post a couple of photos showing the progress on PG Raiser. I've put some clear pieces on, despite my earlier plans to complete the skeleton alone first.

I wonder whether other PGs are as impressive in the terms of design as this one.

I can't find a source of this, but if it's legit... midlife crisis much? :D

I like how different series managed to anchor themselves at different age groups. Clearly the heroin mixed into the plastic by Bandai is working. :>
