As part of assembling the arms, I have managed to assembled most of what's needed but the arms are incomplete at this time. This is due to inking the panel lines, some of which I now realize that I should have done first prior to piecing them together. But it appears that nothing much was lost by having the assembled arms, I was able to ink most of the visible details with the markers when looking at the photograph on the back of the manual. So far, so good. But I am finding that some of the areas to be really tight for the marker to get to.

On Wednesday, I started assembly of the Gundam Astray Red Frame Kai. The first order of business is to make sure that I got all the parts and that nothing was somehow missing. After looking over the parts, I started looking to see where one parts are so I can start the assembly. The first major component is the body, which took me about 2 sessions to complete. Some of the parts were really hard to put together and it makes me wonder if they are meant to be that tight-fitting. But if it means that the parts are going to stay that way for a long time, then this is something I am willing to live with.

RX-79(G) is a special Gundam suited for ground-based warfare. Gundams are normally machines used in space. At least most of them are. The 'Groundtype' RX-79 is one model above the original Gundam which is the RX-78 model. However, the difference between the two is minimal and some necessary changes were needed for the RX-79 to be usable on ground warfare. Heavy weapons and additional armor or equipment cannot be used nor brought forth due to its weight and necessity to transport them. So all of the groundtype Gundams carry some minimal armaments and weapons in order to maximize mobility and lessen the impact of being detected by enemies.

Gundam Astray Red Frame from the Gundam Seed universe. The box itself is quite impressive but the content and the details are even more amazing. Like Sword Impulse before it, there are a lot of parts. And it appears that the model comes with a support base to help with the overwhelming weight of one of the equipment. This will be quite interesting when I pair it up with the display base that I got for Sword Impulse Gundam earlier.

Having played Battlefield 2, 2142, and the first Bad Company, I have some bit of knowledge as to what I am getting myself into. Knowing the Battlefield series, I know that the focus is going to be mainly on the multiplayer aspect rather than the single player. Despite that, I will try to review the single player aspect of the game to the best of my ability. This is not intended to be the be-all-end-all review. I also do not have known recognition or the kind of reputation that people would know and trust. This is just a fan and gamer's review of the game itself. Why?

It was the rematch. And again, it was Super Hockey Sunday. Previously, in a preliminary round, Team USA on men's hockey managed to beat Team Canada on their home turf. Seems like a sign that Team USA could win the gold, right? Not really. Canada bounced back and made it all the way to the Gold Medal finals, where they faced, again, Team USA.
