1/60 PG Strike Assault Custom – BAKUC Winner
This kit was originally a commission piece for a friend of a co-worker. On a whim I entered the kit in the 2008 BAKUC championships (Bandai Action Kit Universal Cup) and ended up winning the North American Semi-Final.
The kit and I then traveled to Hong Kong to compete in the finals, where I ended up taking 3rd out of 11 countries. The overall experience, and trip was something that I never expected happening and it was simply amazing.
The kit itself is a heavily modified Perfect Grade Strike Gundam. The modifications are as follows:
Twin Gatling forearm gun
Shoulder blade with ammo pack
Shins and Knees with dual knife sheaths on left leg.
Rear ankle fins
Sides of face, top of head, back of head, v-fin
New center hatch
Small details and greebles on chest, legs, back, skirts etc.
Metal detail pieces from Mechaskunk and decals from Samuel Decal.
