This is a cool kit. It got me back into gunpla after a good 6 or 7 year hiatus. I used to only build MG and PG, but this kit looked interesting enough for me to try it out, and it was ridiculously fun to build. I had bad experiences with the original HG 1/144 kits of wing gundam in the 90s so I swore off 1/144. The quality of HG has come a long way. So I bought 2. It was fun. No judging
This was my fourth build, so I’m no expert. Overall, pretty happy with this kit and it’s gimmick wing sword(s). I did think it was weird they have 3 and only pieces that are a stark white providing a strange contrast to the rest of the grey base pieces. Similarly, there almost exclusively matte black pieces then boom! The two upper chest corners are almost like a gloss(?). Needless to say my technique really shows on those parts in particular. The gold however is brilliant at hiding the mark(s) of a beginner. Overall impression glad I got it, was a fun build,
This kit is fairly easy to build and it looks good too. As is the case with a lot of build fighters/divers kits this one comes with a few alternate pieces that you can slap on for an alternative look. Or if you're in the scratch build business then you can take these extra parts and glue them onto this kit or onto another kit for a personal touch. The big combiner sword is still light enough that the kits arms don't struggle to keep it up in the air. Over all this is a solid kit that looks sleek and bulky.
