1/100 MG Freedom Gundam WIP(updated 24 May 2009)

I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this kit for awhile now. Before I go on any further, this is my very first GunPla. Well that’s not exactly true cause my very first one would be around 8 years ago? Maybe longer LOL. A more accurate term would be my very first Master Grade =D

You can probably see from the pictures that are gonna be posted here, most of the nub marks are indeed visible. Yes…they make me cry too but please have mercy. Like I said, it’s been a really long time since I did a gundam kit and last time I used my bare hands, I kid you not. I twisted and pulled the parts and saw all the nub marks or scratches everywhere. But what the hell did I care? I was 6 years old ahahhahaha. 

Enough random blabings! Today I shall start on the model shown below:

This is the 1/100 scale master grade Freedom Gundam from the Gundam Seed series. It’s more formal name is ZGMF-X10A Freedom. This is main character, Kira Yamato’s second mobile suit in the show. I shall review this model kit after I am done constructing it.

Let’s get started on the construction shall we?
