Depends. Do you like the 1/144 HG models? If so, the 1/48 ones are less articulate, larger scale versions.

The main draw of 1/48 Mega Size kits is...well, their size. And that's it. They're meant to be display pieces with minimal posability - they have nice detail and are meant to be eye-catching due to their basic design and overwhelming presence. If this is what you want in a kit, then go for it. I'd recommend you decal it up, panel-line it, maybe pick out the smaller details with some paint apps, and give it a nice topcoat so as to maximize the kit to its fullest potential.

They're also very easy to mod as they have larger parts.

I'm thinking of getting this kit. And converting it to resin kit for some heavy modding. I'd even sell copies if I make more. But.. that's down the road. I have too many projects going right now.

would you be changing it to a different suit? is that what you mean? or just tweaking the RX-78?
