[WIP] 1/100 VP Strike Freedom Part 1

Did a review for this conversion kit earlier this year: VP Strike Freedom Review
While waiting for decals for MsB Freedom Gundam, I thought I should get started on this project. Consider it a start into year 2013!

Heads up! Compared to the stock head, chin is slightly longer, face is pushed more inwards.

Torso changes. Whole thing literally replaced except for the back, some sawing of the stock parts required to fit the new pieces.

Shoulder and arms parts all replaced as well. A whole lot more details in resin pieces.

Front and back skirt pieces replaced. Waist rail gun also replaced, resin pieces here quite a number of problems.

Leg area, whole thigh and lower leg replaced. Most edges sharpened.

Feet and ankle guard replaced. Slightly longer and more angular, protruding details at bottom of feet.

With that, dry fitted the whole thing again, parts held together by blu tack and masking tape.

Up next, washing of parts and dealing with problem areas...
