Time for a classic! F-90Y Cluster done!

Anyone who knows me knows I have a thing for old kits and obscure subjects. However, I also have a thing for cool robots, and if you stick a cannon on its shoulder or a beam shield on its arm, chances are good I’m going to buy it. Now… what if you have an old kit, that also has a beam shield??? Yeah, you KNOW that’s going to get me excited!

And, it just so happens Bandai must have known that too, since they reissued a bunch of F-91 and Silhouette F-91 kits a couple of years ago. The first one I had a chance to get to the bench was the 1/100 Cluster Gundam. This has a special place in my heart, too, since I build one way back in the middle-late 1990s, when I was just getting into Gundam kits and anime in general.

Thankfully, my skills have improved some since then, so this time I think I was able to do the Cluster justice. Check it out below, and let me know what you think. I never thought that there’s be retro Gundam modelling, but I guess it proves not only can you go back again, but that everything old is new again, too!

Oh my God, it’s Faust. Now that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time, a long time.

Hey man!

Yeah, it’s been awhile, eh?

I’m still out here buying MSs and trying to get them built. Sadly, the whole “work” and “Covid” things have slowed stuff down a bit. Hoping that trend reverses itself shortly!
