Hello fellow Gunpla builders.
A couple of weeks ago, I got the RG Gundam.This kit is amazing, why? Because its like a tiny MG kit at 1/144 scale.
I built it with a silly grin on my face (almost throughout ^^). I opted for a straight build and used clippers/knife to insure a nubless free look. Well, almost … But, Bandai seems to be getting close to hidding those nubs.
I applied some paint with Gundam Markers, gold marker for the bronze parts so I wouldn’t have to use the stickers. Wanted to apply Matt coat but it’s too cold to do so, coating would “frost” with drying, which happened to the beam rifle D:
Very detailed, almost on par with MG kits. Many stickers/decals to apply just like the 1/1 scale statue.Many molded coloured parts, no painting needed otherwise.
Draw backs with the RG kit is that it’s detailed that it has some delicate parts. Such as the head vulcans (yellow vulcan parts), it can easily snap, which is what happened to my build, the piece was tiny and a tiny bit of glue would eat it clean (hahaha). om nom nom says the glue. So, building the kit, you got to take extra precautions and planning ahead. ^_~*
I like this kit so much, I’ve brought another one along with the RG Zaku II.I’m planning to get some red paints/cans to make RX-78CA, Char’s version. :)And top coat the kits when I feel ready X3
This is a kit I recommend to RX-78 Gundam fans and Gunpla builders.
