Hi there. I haven’t built a kit in, oh man, maybe 10 years? I was in my attic the other day and I found some old kits that I had purchased and never put together when I was a kid. I love working with my hands and finding these kits have sparked a strong urge to get back into building. I’ve been reading a lot on this forum and the reddit gunpla forum as well. I feel as though I have a fairly good grasp on some techniques. I do have a few concerns, however.
I started building an old 1/144 Wing Gundam kit. From my understanding, models pre-2006ish have the potential to be manufactured poorly. I have noticed this greatly in the Wing Gundam kit. A lot of seam lines are uneven and the joins are extremely loose. I have uploaded images of the kits that I have found in my attic and I would love to know whether or not they are worth building and using my materials one (markers and topcoat). HERE they are: http://imgur.com/a/AGzRz
So, my question is, which of these sets are worth building? I’m thinking of setting aside the HG models and focusing more on the V-Gundam (manufactured 1988) and both the F-90s (manufactured 1990 and 1991). Are these worth building or would you recommend starting fresh and getting some newer models? Also, I’m not looking to paint these models. I plan on panel lining and topcoating. Any additional information on these kits that I should know about?
Thanks for any information!
