When I saw the newer Kai version on sale at Wasabitoys (one of my old time fave hobby shops in GH, alongside GTO), I just had to put all my doubts aside. Finally, it arrived on our doorstep one afternoon... (while I was working on sketches)
Now I have to make a choice of whether I build this Red Frame kit first or my HMM Liger Zero. After much thought, I am leaning more on the Liger. Because I have 2 more variants of it to build - The Panzer and the Schneider. I will use this Gundam kit as an "in-between" for my Liger builds because I'm sure the basic Liger build is similar and it may become boring building them continuously. I'll probably also use my unbuilt Armored VF-25 Ozma and VF-27 Lucifer as in-betweens, too. Just to make the experience less repetitive for me. :)
Also, I have some "re-building" to finish first before any of these kits gets started. I'll probably detail that in my next post. Hint: It's still Gundam.
Also, I still have WORK to do. Lots of it! So good luck to me. ^_^"
