Here are some updates (well more like tip for people who are new to gunpla) for "White Strike Freedom".
Here, I am showing how to eliminate the gaps between parts.
Above picture show the gaps between parts of "wing unit" of SFG.
I used super glue (plastic cement will also do) to close the gaps, notice the excess glue marks between the parts?
HandiTAK!! This is also about $2 at any office supply store. I prefer this over clip because it can hold the smallest parts and customized to hold those "weird and odd" shaped parts.
Now, here are very cheap way to make your own "part holder" for painting gunpla. You can get fancy clip and/or holders like these. The issue I have using this kind of "fancy" stuff is that these are just too darn expensive..... a set (dozen,.. if you are lucky) may cost you between 20-40 bucks.
I'd say that's too much for someone who is new to this. So here is alternative solution... DO YOU LIKE SHISH KABOB? You can get 100 bamboo skewers from wal-mart for less than $2. These are excellent choice as holder. Now, as far as clips are concern.....
Finally, the base of holder.....
Here is how I used to paint the SFG.
