The idea came to me when my friend and I made some newbie custom changes to our first MG - Strike with I.W.S.P.! What started out to be a painful experience turned out to be a means to level up our GUNPLA skills! So here it goes.
While we were working on our latest MG Gundam - Strike Noir, I kept on tinkering with our IWSP Strike. As I was trying to clean out the excess sprues from the parts, I accidentally broke its cowling (the movable part just above the foot) in half. So as an act of desperation, I was forced to super glue the pieces together, reinforcing it with masking tape.
It looked pathetic with the tape, but at that point I was more concerned with the durability of the repaired part.
Now when we started painting the parts of the IWSP Strike, the taped parts was still very visible. Now I didn't have any styrene to cover it up, so I just picked up the nearest plastic I could get my hands on to use as a cover of the taped part.
This is where the excess plastic sprues came in handy. So whatya think?? He he he!! I think that it turned out pretty well!! So put those excess runners to good use... you never know when it will come in handy!!
