I'm not a huge fan of the Force Impulse as it's mostly a slight upgrade of Aile Strike Gundam. It's still a great build and very simple to just snap build without worry of painting or requiring stickers. I'm not the best builder as I'm pretty new to it but I've been snap building and I would say this is as nearly as simple as the RX 78-2 Gundam.
This was the first Gunpla I've ever built and I think it's a very good and solid kit for beginners. The build itself is very simple and most of the pieces all fit in place and stay very well. The only issue I had out of the box was the v-fin antenna not staying on the head. Though this is an easy fix with the use of something like super glue to keep it in place. The articulation is very good for a HG kit, and can pull off some nice poses for display and is pretty good at balancing itself. It also features a standard sized hole underneath the suit that works with action bases like the ones that come with figmas. The Force Impulse Gundam itself has very good color accuracy, with the stickers being reserved for mostly the eyes and head cameras. It does only have one pair of hands, but the hands themselves on the kit are very good and will hold the weapons nicely. The biggest issue with the color accuracy is in the flight units that you can assemble. The backpack wings are mostly in black and require some red stickers for parts, though if you don't mind using stickers or if you have a way to paint them in the proper colors it's not that bad. The other two cores though are solid white, which will require painting if you really want it to be color accurate. Overall I would highly recommend this kit for beginners or if you enjoy the visual design of the Force Impulse Gundam in general and want an affordable and simple kit to build.
This was my first time purchasing from USAGundamStore and the experience was phenomenal. I paid a wonderfully low price for a very quality product and the owner even reached out to me thanking me when I should have been the one thanking him. All around a lovely experience and I would gladly recommend this site/retailer to anyone looking to get into gunplas!
