Standing by the hill-side gazing over the Cool Culture of Otakuism!

One-legged hippy

Took a day off from the assembly on Friday, I resumed the assembly of this PG kit on Saturday and a bulk of Sunday, the only two days that I’m free do my hobby… XDWasn’t able to fulfill my resolution of finishing up the legs in Sunday, tho…


Only managed to finished the pelvic unit, one of the leg’s inner frame and another foot… This detaling on the inner frame of the leg alone consumed almost a bulk of my off-work Sunday… Yeah, finally decided to panel line the inner frame because I will probably display the PG kit with that Special Custom Set of clear armour pieces…

Comparing to its smaller cousin, the leg alone already exceeds the height of the minor Red Frame!


Similar to Strike’s, Red Frame’s pelvic joint has a locking mechanism that can be shifted at will, providing an excellent and realistic posing of the leg unit, a very similar gimmick found on various MGs as well…

However, the grip of the lock is quite loose and often fell out from its intended position…


The side skirt can be split apart to reveal a mounting socket for the Gerbera Straight later on…


Unlike the minor Red Frame, the front and rear skirts of the PG are installed separately, thus they are able to shift around to provide larger area of movement for the leg unit…

Unfortunately, due to the double-layered design of the front skirts, the range of its rotation is limited…


When fully fixed onto the pelvic unit, the upper body has restricted area of movement as its belly armour clashes with the bloated crotch piece, thus moving the upper body front-and-back is not possible at this point…

In order to rectify this problem, the body will have to be raised a bit from its fixed position to clear some room… The opening of the cockpit hatch will only work after this remedy as well…


The inner frame slid apart to reveal a hydraulic piece of bling-bling-ness… Haven’t been able to apply the outer armour pieces yet as the night of Sunday draws near…


Notice how the knee armour pieces change their positions as the knee is bending…


Armour sliding mechanism around the ankle in action…


More armour sliding mechanism… This time on the sides of the ankle…


While the range of movement for the toe is extreme, the overall movements on the whole leg on the other hand is quite limited, due to the many armour pieces that restricted the said movements…


Will probably postpone my assembly until the next weekend, as work starts today… >,<
