The AW RG Nu HWS is a great add on to the RG Nu Gundam. A fun build on its own and adds to the appeal of the Nu Gundam aswell when equipped. Some of the colors are not how I would have liked them, like the chest missles mainly, but thats nothing a little paint cant fix. Overall I really enjoy this kit and im glad i picked it up
When I first ordered this, I was expecting it to feel like a early 2000s high grade add-on at best, I am so glad that I was wrong. Every part besides the head camera holds up perfectly and it came with waterslide decals. The instructions were pretty clear and the colors were pretty close to the official model. The only 2 problems I could find were that the stand isn't stable enough to hold up the fully armored Nu Gundam and that the head camera upgrade tends to full apart at the sides sometimes.
The 1st problem I encountered is the head armor sides didn't stay connected to the central head fin. So I had to cemented. The 2nd problem I encountered is that the sub-arm base connector to the front armor didn't stay connected. A simple cement to the sub-arm base to the front armor skirt couldn't fix. AND the 3rd problem is the hole in the bottom of the transport is too small for the included stand.
Love this kit. Adds more to my RG NU Gundam. Easy kit and fun. Love USA Gundam Store.
1.) Assembly: Super easy. Everything BUT the new head armor fit perfectly and securely.
The head armor, specifically the two sides pieces connecting to the crest of the head, needed to be glued together, as it connect via Friction and not pegs. So they fell apart VERY easily. The whole part put together connects to the slot the V-Fin connects into, so don't move excessively, or it will fall off.
2.) Attaching Armor: This is a parts formation, meaning parts will be removed OR added(ex: adaptors on some kits that transform into Jets) to complete assembly.
So definitely keep the parts in a ziplock or similar "baggy" if you haven't already.
Once the parts are on though, barring the head armor as mentioned above, they're VERY secure. The new Shield, which attaches OVER the original, comes with a new adaptor to fit it securely around the entire forearm. Same for the rifle, a separate item not involving original, is fitted with a forearm attachment as well.
3.) Color accuracy: This is NOT the same color as the RG Nu Gundam kit. The ENTIRE armor set, that isn't the Navy or Grey sections, is a bright stark white. The RG Nu Gundam kit is NOT that color of White. It leans more towards "eggshell" and white with grey in it. So the HWS does not match the RG Nu one for one on color. If this bother you, you will need to paint the HWS.
4.) Decal: RG Nu comes with RG sticker styled decals. The HWS kit DOES NOT. It comes with Water Slide decals. These WILL NOT LOOK THE SAME. You can find water slides at RG scale for Nu, so if this bothers you, you will need to order them.
NOTE:POSSIBLE PACKAGING MISTAKE: I did not get a "sticker guide" in the box. Got a full sheet of water slides, but no guide to where they go.
Overall, I'm happy with the HWS expansion. Looking forward to see if Bandai makes the Rage Nucleon for the RG.
