The 1/100 Durga is one of the latest items from Frame Arms line from Kotobukiya. Let’s take a look at what you get!

Some cool looking poses with 2 different forms. The armor parts can be attached on different parts of the body as needed.

When you’re ready to dive in below…
Here’s what you see. Definitely the less exciting plates, but still important!
A bright and well printed manual is inside.
And due to the large amount of white space inside, it doesn’t seem like the build will be that complicated.
If you want to go the extra step, of course there’s a paint color guide inside.
On to the kit itself, here’s the frame shared across the series.
The gold plate looks quite nice. And for more options, there are 2 more clear H plates.
Plates shown in alphabetical order.
For some final thoughts, the Frame Arms line has always been popular, with a lot of variations, and some quite exclusive ones. With this one, I was especially impressed with the knight look, and can’t wait to see it put together in 3d. With the frame already put together, it shouldn’t take too much time to build. How will it look unpainted though? Let’s find out in Part 2!
