MG Aile Strike Gundam #07

After a long pause, I've found some spare time to continue the MG Aile Strike project I started than four years (!) ago. While my stock of PG's, MG's, RG's and SD are piling up, I've been on smaller Gunpla projects in the mean time...
Well, this is the story. I graduated, found work, have been working, still working and the passion for modeling is still here. I even started Tamiya Model kits which involves glue, e.g. the epic Japanse Super GT and  the original Le Mans winner Mazda 787B.

Let's resume where I left with Morgeroete's (Aile) Strike Gundam Master Grade kit. The was a lot of rework in the leg-parts after some of my airbrush-n00b-actions. We're all learning right!
The project is 'online' again, fueled with a fresh mind and inspirations of Gunpla works from all of you.

Mini parts added on shoulder
See photo above. The added mini parts are put into place, which was quite hard if you don't have the proper tools such as (bend) tweezers and thin Tamiya glue if applicable. The results are astonishing; amazing what a few shiny parts can do to Gunpla kit. Post if you have questions on tooling... I'm wondering where I can find more of these reasonal-priced mini-parts for my Japanese plastic. Thank you in advance.
