PG 00 Raiser assembly part 2!!

900+ pieces and I manage to lose 1!!! That was how the night ended for me last night. As I sat finishing the reassembly of this behemoth. As you can see below a puzzle frame makes for a nice platform with edges to not lose the pieces. I have no doubt the small polycap I lost from the sword assembly was lost well before I started putting this thing back together. Heck its been disassembled for over a month now so 1 piece isn't too bad right.

So you can see my work area, only took 2-3 hours to get it all back together and ready for panel lining and a final clear coat.
I did for the first time use some Mecha Skunk parts, and I can tell you it will not be the last!!! They are awesome. I took a few photos so you can see my take on the 00 Raiser. Its not a full custom, but every once in a while you have to build one that is close right? I think I did my norm justice though with 3 blues, 2 whites, and 2 reds.

A little better angle on the upgrades boosters along side the original ones. It looks a lot better now. Below is the finished product.

The foot was a lot of fun adding lines and deciding on a final way to paint it so it was loud, but not too loud. A fine balance.

Below is a tragedy. My attempt at hand Painting, Kamm I am sorry man I am an airbrusher (word?) at heart. Needless to say the base was sanded and repainted today. Can't have this blemish out there in the world of Gunpla. Oh well maybe someday I will master hand painting large areas...until then I have my Iwata Airbrush to save me.

Final steps are on the move Possible decals by Friday...
Till then keep building!


  1. that must be masking hell Tem! dang good one!

  2. 900 = Mind Blown! I've never built a Perfect Grade kit but the number of parts involved is just astounding.
