Reboot: Fixing my MG 1/100 Strike Freedom's frame.

In order to save more money & less buying to increase backlogs, I decided to man it up, FIX MAH' FREAKIN' CREEP SF'S FRAME.
I think I didn't told anyone how or what's broken in the frame of SF of mine. 

Ok, 1st thing, remove the plate gold. Look oddly stupid. By the I snap this picture, those plate parts become weak, thus, start to break apart, luckily, got the extra parts.

To add my stupidity 3 years ago, I've seam line removal the right leg's frame. Yes, SEAMLINE REMOVAL. How stupid I am at that time...

Can you spot the fixed area ?

If you can't, here the better picture. The sliding mechanism on the knee already broken into pieces, so,  pla plate it  to extend the length, then drill a 1.1mm hole, stuck some 1mm pin into it. It's fixed, but I don't for how long.

Saw the line ? Yes, I've saw it off just to start fix the stupid slide gimmick. Well, you won't see it anyway since, it's covered in the end.

Good project.... sometimes we do need to do some sort of "maintenance" to this old GunPla... good luck with the rest of it...
