Okay, so I'm taking a break from the Gundam Wing/EW kits for a bit. With so many shoulder breaks (for thoe of you who have been following my YouTube channel) I just need to step back before the frustration turns to fury.

So, I had this bad boy pre-ordered as soon at I was able to do so! the MG Nu Ver Ka marks the first kit that I pre-ordered, recieved, and then built right away since... oh wow, it's been so long I can't remember... Usually I get a new kit and it goes right into the backlog!

Total actual assembly time: 15 hour, 29 minutes
Total time from start to finish: 4 days, 7 hours, 56 minutes

This is where I had to stop after 9 hours of building:

Sorry for the Image Spam! I'm going to do panel lines and decals in a few months when the weather allows me to spray topcoat again, ut this beast is done for now. I'll be doing a full video review for my YT channel this week some time.

I also look forward to your progress on this kit. This is on my back burner but it is definitely a kit I want to get.

If it's not too much trouble could we see a size comparison?
