MG Gundam MBF-P02Kai - Astray Red Frame Lowe Guerle's Customized

A comparison with previous HG 1/100 scale on right

In the "Heliopolis", produced by diverting coalition of technology, Astray series of prototype machine had been developed for their own defense. Lowe Guerle's discovery of the Astray P02 red frame disrupted the attack of ZAFT. Tactical Arms II equipped on the back that has been has been a variable equipment that has been developed for the red frame, made to first used as a repair part of the blue frame wreck, formality employed which significant improvements were added thereafter. Tactical Arms Ⅱ came in a form of an inverted triangle in the back, it is possible to expand and incorporating high combat power, such as the ridiculously huge saber taller than the wielder, bow, beam rifle, forearm claw and even aerial ability. 

Lowe Guerle's bushido passion for mobile suit inspired appearance of his MS with heart-shape love markings and Japanese characters. As a pilot as well as mechanic, he has a genius sensibility towards high technology. On the other hand, despite his high combat ability, he lack the personality of a fighter. self-proclaimed owner of the "Universe bad luck", making him a solo fighter. Tactical Arms Ⅱ convert to flight glide capability to the MS. Wing functions as a variable vane. Unfortunately, at flight mode, the kit backpack hang loosely to the MS and required a stand for support. Delta form is when the backpack inverted to triangle at the rear. Form for using the Lumiere next-generation propulsion system that the row has been developed for Mars migrants Martian. It's the most convenient way of carrying the Tactical Arms Ⅱ. Tactical Arms Ⅱ is capable to transform into a huge mechanical bow shooting arrow in the form beam trajectory. 

Once handle was removed from Tactical Arms Ⅱ, it became a rifle on its own and the arc portion could then be transformed to a forearm claw used for cutting and welding of metal. At a facility called the Graveyard, ancient folks carrying the lost technology, mastered the production skills of producing huge Japanese samurai sword. Giant Japanese sword made by the same technology as the Gerbera straight. The red frame was able to wield the double MS samurai swords, superior over beam saber in terms of sharpness.

The Red Frame is definitely one of my all time favorite Gundam MS, surpassing in terms of design both old/classic and the most recent renditions made for current series... I guess it’s the influence of samurai elements and the unusual balance between red and white in the color scheme of this particular mecha, also the Tactical Arms II unit is a cool multitask weapon that makes the swiss knife look like a cumbersome and not so handy tool... Fantastic kit !!!... =OOOOO

I'm not a big fan on Gundam from alternate timeline nonetheless this Gundam is certainly very very popular just by seeing how fast the kit and even Metal Build were sold out. The design sure is cool and the gimmick can be very attractive on pics. Just that when I need to pose it, it just isn't too enjoyable.. lolz ^_^

Not mine bro... I'm just helping to build and touch up the kit. Can call it FOC commission work. The colour scheme was kind of musha style I guess. This mecha can be an eye candy to non Gundam fans as well ^_^
