Gaijin Gunpla

This Tactical Arms II L is truly massive.  At first I thought it was a little over-the-top as part of the  Mobile Suit but now that I have played around with it a bit, I feel it really adds some heft to the sleekness of the suit and I have grown to like it.  I hope you like it too.

    Great stuff Gaigun. As usual it's very difficult to fault your work. I can't imagine how devestating you'd be with an AB.

    The two tone crimson works beautifully and is much more distinguishable now in the booth. Epic pics as always.

    I note with interest that the Tactical arms does not seem to totally overbalance the suit when it's mounted to the back.

    looks as if the tactical arms has a piece wich is rather bright red?

    @Tonzo: Thanks for the kind words. I don't know if an Airbrush is going to happen anytime in the near future. The Tactical arms actually sits pretty well on the back of the astray. I do have it attached to the stand on my desk just to prevent it from toppling over.

    @marc: You did spot the unpainted pieces! I was hoping they would go unnoticed. I originally thought that they would be covered by another piece but that didn't turn out to be the case.

    @mangyver5223: The tactical arms seems to be a backpack that can change into weapon forms. It can transform into a giant sword or a bow.

    Hi Kellefe,

    I looked into the Tamiya Metallic Red when I was debating colour choices for the ARF. I wanted something darker so I had to use two different colours to get the effect I wanted.

    Glad to hear you like your results on the Gouf. I definitely would like to see how it turned out. Got some pics?

    Hi Kellefe,

    First of, I really like the color combination on this one and is inspiring me to make a custom MG ARF too. Quick question, does the tactical arms come with the MG kit or is it sold separately?
