Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L
Gundam Seed No. 12
Like my Gundam Astray Red Frame that I posted a while back, I modified the paint scheme for this Gundam in keeping with the black theme of my other Gundam Astray. ^^
The Gundam Astray Blue Frame looks a lot better with black anyway. More menacing, IMHO.
Still used Tamiya Matte Black spray paint for the white parts as well as Light Gunmetal for the other parts. Since I was having a hard time choosing which kind of blue matched with the original blue parts of this kit, I chose Tamiya Racing Blue instead. Kind of like a racing car motif with matte black matched with glossy racing blue.
The reason why I wanted this particular gunpla was ‘cos of his big-ass sword! Blue Frame looked like a Gundam version of Cloud Strife. =p
The two knives that came with this kit originally have a black paint scheme but I thought that it would be better to paint them with chrome so that it’ll really look like a blade.
It was damn hard to pose him with the sword since it was bigger than the Gundam, so most of the time I just have him holding the sword in a downward position.
Like everything in Gundam, a big-ass sword with a knife is just overkill! LOLz
The sword can also transform into a Gatling Gun. Cool!
The sword/gatling gun can also transform into a sort-of rocket booster which you can place on his back.
Aside from the two knives, Gundam Astray Blue Frame also has retractable knives/ blades in both of his feet.
