    Question What was the Worst Gunpla Kit you have ever built?

    No matter how many Gunpla kits you have built, no matter how skilled you are at modeling, or even how invested in the hobby you are, what was the Worst Gundam Model Kit you ever built? With as much detail as you are willing to put into your description(s), feel free to explain the reasoning behind your reasoning.

    The HG Tristan. That kit was just garbage in general. Sure you can do a ton of modifications to make it look great and it has some nice parts for kit bashing but as far as kits go it is really bad.

    What Squee said. If you walked by it too heavily, it fell over. If you even looked at it, it fell over. If you thought about it too hard, it fell over....

    MG Crossbone Full Cloth for this same reason.

    I love the design but the cloak is big and bulky, all of the joints are very loose even after putting nailpolish on them

    I had no issues with anything on the Xbone kits aside from the wrist joints. If anything, i always found everything to be too tight.

    I'm not the only person who feels this way either lol

    MG Epyon EW. It was a fight to just get that kit together, and even then, it just fell apart. Not the mention the sword that snapped in half, or th4 flimsy waist...
    Getting back into Gunpla, slowly.

    Only problems I had with my Epyons were the wings were loose, and I broke the Heat Whip a couple of the heat whip links

    Re: What was the Worst Gunpla Kit you have ever built?

    After 286 kits built since Jan. 2017

    In my opinion there is only 2 kits that really stood out.

    1) HG00 1/144 Tieren Space Type.
    Overall design was very disappointing, and the legs are pretty awful.
    Also I cut myself 4 times working on that kit

    2) RG 1/144 Sinanju
    It was fun to build, but inner frame was very weak... the parts like to fall off
    I had a such a bad experience with this kit I kinda steer away from RG kits in general.
