Custom PG 1/60 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G mod
A Taiwanese modeler has recently finished modding his PG 1/60 00 Gundam to become 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G. To sum it up: this is one heck of an impressive work.

The finished model has also just participated in the Bandai Model Kit World Cup 2010:
The project started in mid-November last year, just before PG 1/60 00 Raiser was released. The GN Buster Sword II has an inner frame which is apparently from MG Astray Red Frame Kai. Other minor modifications are done on the 00 Gundam itself, such as some proportion corrections and allowing the feet to bend backwards.

I remember first seeing the GN Buster Sword II last year when the creator posted it on ToysDaily forum (before PG 00 Raiser was released). It was one ambitious project that I thought I may not hear again, but it is now finished a year after the creator announced his 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G project. It's definitely an impressive work he has done there, and he has just made it into BAKUC as well. Speaking of BAKUC, the BAKUC Final international competition is held in Hong Kong around December 2010 (i.e. Gundam Expo Hong Kong 2010). I do hope to see this PG 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G to make it there, as I am really taken by his work!
