After seeing Plamo Addiction‘s work on his Perfect Grade Strike Freedom, followed shortly thereafter with ASM‘s, I couldn’t resist the urge to build some PG something. Anything would do. Therefore, I decided to satisfy my compulsion by building an easy part and one that hasn’t been shown yet.
Oh wait. That’s not Perfect Grade anything. It is a new set of Tamiya Sidecutters. New Grade, new experience, new sidecutters. Let’s get it on.
The first step was to find a specific runner out of the 55 that comprise the kit. Oh here it is.
That’s right. I’m building the stand. (hey, it’s fast, easy, and satisfies my desire to do something with this kit.) I love how the runner has a label on it. Because I wouldn’t know which runner to use if it didn’t…
The other two:
Because it’s ridiculously simple (it is a stand after all) I’ll just use pictures to show you.
And that’s it. I put the new side cutters in this picture to give an idea of the size of the stand (hint: it’s big!).
Of course, I want to keep going. Seeing this kit on various sites on the web is driving me crazy, but I need to finish work on others before starting this adventure. That and the end of the year means year end cleaning and parties, and sometime both together. I have a week off around New Year’s so that’s when I can really get down to building. Can’t wait!
