man.. i always wanted a GN sword 3.. i bought my NG 1/100 OO raiser just before the release of the designer version which have the GN sword 3 come along and i'm so regret to buy that version so early.. the idea of this weapon is cool.. why.. it can be a beam pistol/rifle/ others then transform in to a large beam sword/blade for close combat.. a weapon for both long range and close range combat.. isn't this is awesome.. and with the upgrade of this weapon which unlike the one from Exia, the GN sword 1.. this can make a large beam for long range distance when it in pistol/rifle mode.. yeah.. its seems a bit overpower.. actually we can call the OO raiser as a seven sword OO raiser with the GN sword 3.. haha.. no matter how you count you will only find there are 5 weapon in OO raiser which is one GN sword 3, two GN sword 2 and two beam saber.. if we say the large beam of GN sword 3 is one of the sword then GN sword 3 can be consider as two sword in one sword.. and remember OO raiser firing a large beam from O raiser beam to destroy the satellite weapon? and the A-law captain saying it was not a beam shot but a large beam sword.. if that counted as beam sword as well.. then OO raiser can be consider to have seven sword which two is hidden.. it just my speculation..
it seems shorter then the GN drive we always see from the anime.. i mean that one if this should be the Exia's GN drive but isn't the GN drive for Exia in MG version is longer.. so.. Ian cut it half to fit it in OO raiser and it still perform so well?.. haha.. i haven't try it yet even though i have the battery now ( it provided from the box)..
this picture is for Chris.. comparison with the NG 1/100 version.. i never thought that the size is so much different.. i forget the NG 1/100 OO raiser is consider as the smaller version of 1/100 like the MG wing.. i just hate the way of attaching the O raiser wing to the OO gundam in the 1/100 version.. loose and fragile..
and now is the time for the lock..
start with the lock for the knee joint.. i didn't display all the part in one picture but in different picture just like following the step from the manual.. too many screw and small part.. they look similar.. so i don't want to make myself confuse for that.. that is why i don't want to cut them all out from the runners first to display in one photo..
1. joint lock for the knee
2. joint lock for the shoulders
3. joint lock for the wrist
4. joint lock for the elbow
5. the screw or nut drivers.. nut?.. haha
even though the joint lock for shoulders and wrists seem similar but it actually different from each other because of the additional parts add in during it attach to the joint.. that's all here..
next post will on missile pack and painting plan.. still got not enough money to buy paint.. i may start the other WIP for other kit while waiting for the money and paint..
to be continue..
