As I have been doing each session with the Perfect Grade Strike Freedom, before I started the head I took out all the runners that I would need. The pile isn’t so big this time but it includes some interesting parts.
Here’s the bag that includes everything (except batteries) that I will need to get this head to light up.
And here are the batteries that are required. I picked up these at a 100 yen store. Let’s hope they have some life in them.
Before I started any assembling of the head I wanted to make sure the LED would work so I plugged the batteries in and did a test.
Head time! This is pretty much the same as an MG with some added pieces and a lack of any kind of sticker.
It looks awesome already and all I have built is the face!
From there I take the last of my B runner (IIRC). Amusingly, because this was the last part of the B runner I had cut off the used runner and left only these pieces and in doing so forgot it was the B runner. It took me a bit to find it amongst the many runners still in the PG box.
I previously wrote that I thought the little balls that attach to the housing for the cylinders in the torso were the smallest pieces in the build. Well, it turns out I was wrong. Look at the vulcans.
Attach those and a couple other pieces to the frame and you’ve got this:
As I mentioned previously the head is like a 1/60 scale MG type build so I didn’t bother to take pics of the armor application, but here’s a shot of the pieces.
The good and bad of the V fins. There’s some text on the small red plastic piece, which my camera had a hard time bringing in to focus. Good!
And when I looked at the V fins from behind I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed.
I can understand that it isn’t a solid piece but it does look tacky compared to the high level of the rest of the build. Bad.
Here’s a shot of the finished head. Awesomeness plasticified. (Did I just make up words?)
And the LED?
BAM! That just happened.
