1/72 G-System RX-93 Hi-Nu
This fantastic kit is the 1/72 G-System RX-93 Hi-Nu Perfect Grade Strike conversion. This was a commission project that was started in early 2011 as a “mental health” break from the 1/35 Gp03 Stamen. The project came to a halt in early June when I had found out that my younger brother was diagnosed with cancer. I finally got back into working on it in about August, and finished up the last tiny bit before Christmas. The entire project was pretty much complete around October, all that was left was the shield.
The kit uses most of the internal frame and most of the arms from the PG Strike, but the rest is discarded. The conversion is very well thought out, and really utilizes the inner frame quite well. Leaving all of the articulation in tact (weight issues aside) it can hold most poses if you are patient with it.
Over all the build was really straight forward, with minimal fitment issues, and basic clean up. The kit includes a ton of metal parts and photo-etch which really help to draw attention to the already awesome kit.
Paint is all Mr.Color lacquers as usual, with Mr. Super Metallic Iron being used for the internals.
