MG-STRIKE-ANKLE from I am talking to my soon to be 5 year old son about my latest model. It’s the MG Aile Strike Gundam.

“Be very careful that you don’t press too hard or a piece will break.” I should know; right after I had that little speech with him I adjusted the right ankle cover and neatly broke it in the middle. It actually broke with a crisp *snap* sound.


The web site Rainbow 10 is where I get loose pieces. Or it was. Now the page clearly says “Notice: Bandai parts order is suspended at this moment.” The break was clean and little thin Tamiya glue and the piece is fixed. On pieces that don’t have any stress that works.

Good thing I did not tell him “be careful not to drop it”.
