The FX-550 Skygrasper is a support fighter operated by the Earth Alliance and stationed aboard the Archangel battleship. The Skygrasper often sortied alongside the Strike Gundam to deliver/exchange Striker Packs with the Mobile Suit during combat. The Skygrasper was more than capable of engaging enemy Mobile Suits on its own, as it comes equipped with a beam cannon, multiple machine guns, and an array of missiles to defend itself. After the Skygrasper proved to be a valuable support fighter during its time with the Archangel, the Earth Alliance began mass-producing Skygrapers to support their newest line of Striker Pack-equipped Mobile Suits. This Real Grade rendition of the Skygrasper also serves as an expansion pack for the RG GAT-X105 Aile Strike Gundam, as it comes bundled with the Sword Striker and Launcher Striker Packs! Builders can attach either Strikers Pack to the Skygrasper, display them separately, or fasten them to the Aile Strike Gundam and create the Perfect Strike Gundam!

  • 120mm Anti-Vessel Multi-Barrel Gun & 350mm Gun-Launcher Combo Unit

Description

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the FX-550 Skygrasper with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
