Gundam Astray Red Frame – Waist Unit, pieces

Finally back working on Red Frame! This weekend I’ve built the wasit unit, not the most exciting part but critical nonetheless.

A fair amount of pieces for such a small part of the mobile Suit, I found it quite surprising each leg peg contains 4 pieces, but as with the other joints on this kit it’s very sturdy thanks to it. Loads of internal detailing as usual, the skeletal style of Red Frame leaves more of this on show than most kits but alot does still get hidden away.

Partially completed. The front and side skirts connect using the ball joints to allow maximum movement.

Wow, I’ve just realised it’s a year to the day since I posted my first worklog for this unit! I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to these kits and rushing just isn’t an option. Now the clocks have changed over here the evernings are alot brighter so hopefully i’ll be able to finish this one off in the coming weeks.

      Cheers man! Can’t believe how long it’s taking me, quite disgraceful really 🙂

      Nice to see you back online, I wouldn’t worry too much about Gundam Factory, it really hasn’t caught on and there are other much more appealing sites now like and MAC forums.. I’ll keep it running for another year or so but we’ll see eh 🙂 Think I’m going to try and rework it so posting is simpler for people who don’t know WordPress all that well – another thing I need to find time to do!
