Flag Fighters For Life! #4 - HG Graham's Custom Flag

In a rare switch of events, my blog is actually behind my Facebook page because I've gotten so busy and can only afford to make quick posts now and then. I often just post things on my page as I see/do them. I do this because it's simple, fast and I don't have to worry about re-sizing pictures because it's done automatically. However I realize that some of you read this blog and not that page so I'm going to show you some of the things I've been uploading there. This will be nothing new for the people who frequent my page as I'm just going to be copying the write up's directly.

Gaigun (http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/ ) built this but found it to be too frustrating and wasn't impressed. He was going to leave it at ASM's (http://americansalaryman.wordpress.com/ ) place until I said something about that. I've ALWAYS wanted a Flag. This one in particular. ASM is a great guy and all but I couldn't let him take this. He has his own kits to worry about. That said I can understand Gaigun's difficulties after playing with this myself. It's very flimsy... but I still love it because of what it represents. Graham when he was awesome. When he realized that he needed a more powerful weapon to take on the Gundams he had this custom made. Before the Over Flag, the GN Flag, Masurao, Susanowo and then ultimately the Brave... there was this. The symbol of a hard as nails warrior in the prime of his fighting career. The essence of the warriors code. Bushido. No... the Flag isn't for everyone. But it is for me. Flag Fighters FOR LIFE!
