WIP: RG 1/144 - Freedom Gundam (Part 1: Inner Frame)

This is the 1st part of my building process for the RG Freedom which shows the inner frame or skeletal system of the model. Based from this frame, it's hard to believe that this will turn out to be the Freedom.

I don't know why but some of the parts already has nub marks before I even cut them. This added more job to the cleaning. Setting that aside, all the parts are easy to connect. But I noticed the upper arm easily falls off from the joint connecting to the shoulder. I hope this will be fixed once the outer frame is attached. After that, I tried moving the joints and so far everything seems to be working properly. I also replaced the closed hands with the movable fingers.

There's nothing much else to see from the inner frame aside from it's joints and articulation. I'm still in the process of building the model so look forward for my next update on the model.

Unbox: RG 1/144 Freedom Gundam

Effect parts (Not all RG Freedom kit has this, may be sold separately)
This is the 5th installment of the RG series and my 2nd time building a RG model. I was so amazed with the details of the RG 1/144 - Gundam RX78-2 that I decided to get another RG model. I have a lot of anticipation for this model since the Freedom is one of my favorite gundams before the Strike Freedom came out.

The box size is the same as the other RG kits. Inside the box are 10 runners, 2 sets of decals and an instruction booklet. I was so lucky to have the effect parts as a bonus to the kit. Some other kits doesn't have this. So if your going to buy the RG Gundam Freedom, then you might as well get the kit with effect parts.

Based from my past RG experience, I know I'll be applying a lot of very small decals and panel lines. I expect for the Gundam Freedom to be greater than the previous RG model kits. I'm hoping that there will be less parts easily falling out of the body. This concludes my unbox review of the RG Gundam Freedom. I'll start building the model and will be posting updates on my work. Look forward to it and thanks for viewing.
