here's what i'm currently doing simultaneously with my kaite madigan's zaku and my MG justice conversion....a pg freedom~~

started this kit since december last year but still not finished yet because i'm trying to depict all the details of a pg kit so that the freedom wont come out looking like a 1/60 freedom slap whole heap onto the strike pg's frame...just wouldnt work for me.. so i decided to zest it up with some details i came up with..

so here are the prog pics:




here's the modification done onto the skirting to fit the freedom portion....gonna mod it to fit the 'PG' likeness...



here's the body....did some modification onto the cockpit....details are referred to the MG freedom....and added some spice with some detailings thereafter...



here's the shoulder... and also the PG like shoulder is apllied where the hatches can open as below:

That poor PG Strike...

Looks like you're looting peaces from the 1/60 Freedom. What are you going to do about the wings and side skirts?

ou don't need to be hot to model, You just need the right tools.

Does look good. Would never do that to mine, I love the PG Strike as it is. Maybe a Gouf Custom style mods, but this is your project.

I really honestly want one now. It looks pretty huge. My PG Mk. II doesn't seem that big.
Trust the robot.

argles! That is amazing man!! I would do something like that, but that's when my skillz are enhanced :P anyways, you're not going to use the wings from that 1/60 HG(?) Freedom are you? I recommend not since it's so stubby and weak. Same goes for the railguns. But then again... I believe that you will scratch build them right?? :D

actually i'm gonna use the wings and the rail guns from the 1/60 freedom. yeap i totally agree about their stubiness but that's where i'm gonna mod so that they'll turn out better than originally. also, the wings are modded to match the MG version except that more detailed like the PG aile striker pack.

so here are more in prog pics:

here are the details i'm doin for the front and rear skirtings:


the scratchbuilt parts

attached to front skirtings

attached to rear skirtings

details on the side cannons...might not look like a PG style yet...but hey that's for later

scratchbuilt extra vernier on top of the main one

btw here are the mock pictures of how the freedom pg is gonna look like once finihsed...

so, enjoy~~

I painted this kit for a friend. It's a huge piece. Your mods are really great. Good luck.

thanks Ezechiel

i used mr color laquer based paint (the funny bottle cap)
the brush marks are actualy quite visible, but the photos somehiw hid them from being seen..

anyways, notice the last pic, i thought the particles were dust untul i smudged it and found out they were actually chrome particles from me spraying the pistons...
darn it, now have to repaint that part...  :(
