I bought the Perfect Grade Strike Freedom earlier since I made an eBay sale. At this point, I only plan on owning this and the Perfect Strike shortly. The rest of the PG line doesn't interest me too much until they redo Zero since it's horribly outdated. I'd like the 00 kits but I'm not too impressed enough to dump all that money. I heard the Raiser kit sucks since the "wings" are so heavy they can't even bare their own weight.

I'm about half done the Freedom. WAY too much preparation for many parts since it requires a lot of sanding. The nub marks on this are horrendous to try and get rid of. I'm dreading doing the wings.

I'm building the P-Bandai Heavyarms Custom currently. It's got a lot of bad nub marks I can't get rid of without ruining the piece.

It has the half clown mask and you're supposed to use a stick for it but the sticker sucks. I'm going to try and paint it since the sticker didn't hold. It's molded in the mask so it was made to paint.

I've painted very minimally with kits. specifically I've done the forehead indentation on the Turn-A. This guy on Youtube gave me the idea since you're supposed to use a decal but it's better with paint. Mine looks better than this, and is way cleaner.

I just ordered this, it's coming out the end of the month.


It's a big fucking kit for $88. I'm glad I didn't buy that white and purple one since this is a proper Snow White version.

My Snow White is at JFK airport. I didn't even see the email that they shipped it over a week ago. It'll probably be the next one I work on and it's going to take at least a month I think. The regular Zero they did took me awhile since the wings had so many parts and this has three times the accessories.

My Snow White finally arrived. They don't give you a box for it, it's just a regular brown shipping box with instructions. I don't know why that is. Although the regular Zero had it's own box but no art on it.

It's filled to the top in runners. I'll probably start it after I finish Tallgeese III.

The last Zero took me quite some time to finish it since the wings are very complicated.
