Master Grade GAT-X102 Duel Gundam


Another forgotten post. LOL. A friend actually asked me if I've built any of the new MG Gundam Seed mechas, and I said 'yeah...lookit up on my blog man...'

But there wasn't any, except for the conversion duel that I did awhile back.

So here I am, posting it now. After...jeez I can't remember how long.

Alright, what's the story? When it was first announced that the Duel Gundam was coming out, I think I was the few that cried out in glee. As a tear dropped, I vowed to get one for myself. You see I've always been a fan of the Duel Gundam. Aside from the Strike (which IMHO is one of the most nicely designed gundams) the Duel was always my second choice. And after almost a year it was announced, it finally came out. I grabbed one for myself and took it home to build it with careful and ease. I wanted to paint it, but due to work constraints...I had to hold on to that.

Until a good buddy of mine asked if I could paint it for him. He's built it, but needs the necessary paints to get it looking good. And with a big smile, I agreed...

The paint apps for this guy is actually interesting. Firstly, the Duel isn't white or gray. He's actually on a very light tone of gray...I made the assaultshroud armour a little bit darker since i wanted it to go with a military feel to it. (It's going to be repainted soon since my friend wanted it to be lighter...)

Okay, so here it is...

Will be sharing more Gunpla works soon once I'm done with a few more. Yep, it's been Gunpla months for me lately.

See you when I see you!
