Here’s the frame all assembled. I doubt we’ll see much of it, but I added some details in gold for fun, and gave the whole thing a nice flat coat which always works so well on top of Tamiya gunmetal. The frame is a bit basic, and the foot ball joint polycaps seem a bit weak for stability, so it’s a good thing this kit comes with a stand. That said, we don’t usually have the luxury of a frame to build on 1/144 kits.I started on the white pieces with D runner as a few of the pieces required masking. It’s a shame that they didn’t design the gun better so as not to need masking though as it’s rather a tricky shape to get the masking tape around.
