Ok here is my first proper gunpla model, the PG strike freedom, technically this isnt my first ever gunpla model, I have build 2 non grade strike gundams that I bought years ago on an animecon, I don't count these in my gunpla collection because they are easy, no skill required and 1 of them is thrown away already and the other I use to test painting tricks on for future models at the moment.
The PG strike freedom is the most expensive perfect grade out there, with its wings open its a huge suit. Luckily it comes with an action base to support it because with the wings on the suit its a heavy and a real back heavy suit. I bought this kit because I love the Gundam SEED universe, and the Strike Freedom is my favourite gundam suit of all times. I did not paint, panel-line or put the decals on this kit at the time of making the pictures, and so far I have only panel-lined the model and put on a few of the sticker decals, I am considering to get water-slide decals for this kit but not yet at this moment of writing.
Now for some pictures of the model:
The box, as you can see the boxart looks really good.
This was the introduction to my collection with the first proper gundam model I built.
