Custom Build: RG 1/144 Gundam Astray Noir

MODELER: GKC
MODEL TITLE: Gundam Astray Noir
MODIFICATION TYPE: kit bash, custom paint job, custom decals
KITS USED: RG 1/144 Gundam Astray Red Frame, HG 1/144 Strike Noir

Finally finished the build! I was just actually waiting for the metal decals to come in before I finalise the build.

Anyway, I would like to thank TATSUHOBBY for providing me the kits to build this Astray variant.

I really liked the design of Astray Noir ever since the first time I saw it years ago. I am really happy that I finally got some time to build something like this with at least 90% accuracy to its original design.

The kit bash process was really easy compare to my next project, RG Astray Turn Red! I also enjoyed scratch building the v-fin, which is really different from the other Gundam models, though I had some troubles making it stable since I cut each fins individually, but overall I am quite happy about it.

I also thought that I was gonna have some troubles finding the right decals for this kit since the Red Frame Astray's decals are not really working on its black armor pieces, so I dug the decal sheet of my MG Astray Noir and luckily found some small sized Astray Noir logo for its shoulder and right leg parts.

The base color of its armor pieces also helps the metal decals to pop out, and really is looking very sharp even in person.
