I've finished mine. Well, nearly, just have to top coat some bits and apply a handful more fiddly decals.

I really enjoyed putting this together. My first (and only so far) perfect grade. I believe it uses the same (or very similar) frame to the Strike, but doesn't have quite the same level of flexibility due to the armour in places. Pretty close though.

The complexity of the armour is something you have to experience - especially on the legs. There is a lot of movement and it looks great.

The Gerbera Straight is really nice, with some good details including script on the tang and very nice chrome finishing - even going so far as including the arcs on the edge from sharpening (a bit of a damascus steel thing I believe??).

My one major frustration with it is that the forearm hydraulic cylinders can pop out (and will) when bending the arm. That's really frustrating. So much so that I'm considering putting a little stop in one of them to retain it.

Regardless of this, it's easily one of my favourite looking suits. The head is just brilliant and the proportions look great, plus it was great fun to build.

LOL yet another builder with this in his backlog here.   Waiting for some kind of cool inspiration regarding the colour scheme as there is wayyyyyy too much red in this kit.

I agree. I'm planning to change the red frame to gold and silver/gunmetal. Might reduce the number of red parts for this MS
