this is actually my first gundam kit after 16+ years building cars i got bored and needed a change of pace. i knew of gundam kits but never bought one till my hobby shop started carrying them at 14 bucks i couldnt help myself, a car costs 35 on the low end. i got 2 kits for the price of a car. aside from the color change its pretty much box stock. i couldve done better with the seams but someone stole my tamiya putty and had to resort to using spot filler putty which i wasnt too happy with for the next kit im gonna use something model car builders use which is laquer melted sprue glue.
the one thing i wasnt expecting of this was the tedious masking good thing i saved my bottle of sol masking neo.
the colors are tamiya light blue,tamiya medium blue(not seen),aclad magnesium,testors metalizer gunmetal and exhaust and humbrol metalic grey,
