That looks wonderful so far! Much better than my first kit. Or second. Or third.

This is looking great man. I see you didn't attempt to separate the fingers.

The MG RX-78-2 Ver. 3.0? There's no need to separate the fingers because they're all individually jointed. There's nothing connecting the fingers together.

Nice build so far. Interesting to see you're completing in sections and just putting it together. I've always wanted to try that out but I can never bring myself to follow through, haha.

And Bossguy is correct; the 3.0 RX-78 will have the fancy new PG-style hands.

I don't see what the big deal is that the MG RX-78 3.0 has individually jointed fingers. The MG Dom had them back in 1999. If anything we should be mad that Bandai took this long to add this feature to more of their models.

I think the main thing is that it has joints at the base, the middle, and the tip of the finger. The MG Sazabi and the 2.0's had about the same hands as the Dom I assume.

I don't know, I only own a 2.0 of the Titans Gundam MK.II and I don't have it with me to check, nor do I remember if it does. I know that my MG Dom has individually jointed fingers, with two points of articulation per finger, at the base and the knuckle. Why every MG after it, way back in 1999, didn't come with the same articulation blows my mind sometimes. It is probably just Bandai being Bandai and trying to save as much money as possible, to make as much money as possible.

True, and that's the reason for making a big deal out of it. We're finally getting them more often.

@Bossguy, actually, I think the Dom was the only MG kit that had them back then. I have the 2.0 of the MG MK.II as well (if that's any indication) and only the joints at the hands themselves are articulated compared to the entire fingers on the Dom.

Haha, looks like someone still needs to build a 2.0 kit.

Just messing with you, of course. I've wondered myself how it would look like to separate the current hands we get in the 2.0 kits, but now that Bandai looks to be including the new stuff (hoping they don't decide to stop out of the blue), that seems to be a thing of the past.

Yes, sir, I do. I've been wanting to get a MG Zaku 2.0 for a while now, just haven't had the money. I've just watched a lot of reviews for 'em.

I have two of the 2.0 models and I'm pretty sure no other old Mgs 2.0 or not have the jointed fingers

Looking good on your progress so far. You prefer your panel lines thick?

Ahh, I see. Nothing wrong with it, as sometimes thick panel lines are required. It's actually very cleanly done, way better than when I first started panel lining with a pen/pencil.

Your Zeta looks very nice! I think that kit is on the top of my list to get eventually. It's cool that it comes with that display. How does well does the transformation work on that kit?

not finished yet and not shure i will try the transformation, i'm afraid it will damage the dull coat paint once i'm finished
