Some tips to build your papercraft project

Here i can give you some tips how to create your papercraft. So you will get the best result by your own handicrarft. Basicly creating papercraft is lil bit difficult for some people. The key is being patient and carefully.

1. Use sharp knife (sharp cutter)
Cut the papercraft model that you've download, cut it with sharp knife and steel ruler. This is to avoid if you get wrong and make mistake when cutting the model. By Using knife, it more accurate and safely. But it doesn't mean you cannot use scissors. It still usefull tu cut the curve part because it would be difficult to use knife.

2. Use the best quality paper and glue.
After you print the papercraft model. Put it to the harder paper, dont use the A4 paper because it to difficult to fold and manage it.
To make the fold keep in together, you need the best paper glue, do not use any kind of glue beside paper glue, like wood glue for hard paper just use the paper glue because it easier to dry, not make the paper too wet.

3. The most important is being patient and carefully, Keep in relax and do it when you're in free time, whichmean you have full time to create it and nobody or your boss disturbing you when you enjoy your creation.

Technical and Historical Notes

Despite the theft of four prototype Gundams by ZAFT, the Earth Alliance continues its research and constructs new units featuring advanced technologies. One such unit is the GAT-X131 Calamity Gundam, which is designed as a long-range artillery unit similar to the GAT-X103 Buster Gundam. One of the new technologies implemented in the Calamity Gundam is Trans-Phase armor, which is an improved version of Phase Shift armor. Whereas Phase Shift armor utilizes a 'power up' mode denoted by color and a 'power down' mode denoted by gray, Trans-Phase armor is designed to only activate at the point of impact and thus preserve energy. This energy can then be used for power-consuming energy weapons. Also, to keep up with the abilities of Coordinators, the Alliance designates pilot Orga Sabnak as a 'biological CPU' rather than a human pilot and requires him to take drugs to be able to effectively use his high performance mobile suit. Unfortunately, these drugs have severe side effects after wearing off.

As an artillery suit, the Calamity Gundam features a variety of weapons. Its main weapon is the twin "Schlag" 125mm beam cannons mounted on the backpack. Other armaments include a "Scylla" beam cannon in the chest, which is identical to the one used by the GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam. The Calamity Gundam also uses a handheld "Todesblock" plasma bazooka, and its shield is equipped with a "Kaefer Zwei" ram cannon. Since the Calamity Gundam was designed for long range combat, it does not come equipped with any close range melee weapons. However, the Alliance does develop a close combat variant, the GAT-X133 Sword Calamity. The Calamity Gundam is first deployed in combat during the Earth Alliance's attack on the Orb Union. Following the defeat of Orb, the Calamity Gundam is taken to space and transferred to the Archangel class battleship Dominion under the supervision of Blue Cosmos leader Muruta Azrael. The Calamity Gundam is destroyed near the war's end on September 26, C.E. 71, by Athrun Zala's ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam.

[Papercraft] GAT-X105 Aile Strike Gundam

The GAT-X105 Strike Gundam is initially designed by Junichi Akutsu and cleaned up by Kunio Okawara for the series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED as one of the five mobile suits developed under the Earth Alliance's G Project. In the real world, the GAT-X105's base design is closely (though not entirely) based on the original RX-78-2 Gundam and also shows strong design influences from the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam.

The base configuration of the GAT-X105 Strike is armed with two "Igelstellung" 75 mm CIWS, two "Armor Schneider" combat knives, and a 57 mm high-energy beam rifle. Like all the other mobile suits of the G Project, the Strike is equipped with Phase Shift armor, which renders it virtually immune to all manner of physical attacks; due to the armor's high energy requirements and the limited power reserves afforded by its energy battery, however, the Strike cannot keep PS armor activated for long. The Strike and its variants all use the General Unilateral Neuro-link Dispersive Autonomic Maneuver Synthesis System operating system.[citation needed]

The GAT-X105 Strike's greatest strength is its compatibility with the Striker Pack system, which consists of a set of backpack units containing equipment sets designed to fulfill a specific role in combat; the Strike can thus be adapted to various combat situations simply by attaching the appropriate Striker Pack. With the first three Striker Packs, the Strike can be equipped for flight and all-purpose combat (Aile Strike), heavy melee combat (Sword Strike), or heavy ranged assault (Launcher Strike).[citation needed]

The GAT-X105 Strike should not be confused with the ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny or the GAT-01 Strike Dagger.
