So I decided to take a break from warhammer modeling, sort of. I got a Real Grade Gundam kit the other day and I cannot say enough good things about it. If you have never tried one you should absolutely get one. The way these kits are put together is absolutely genius. No glue, minimal mold like scraping, no gaps to fill, and every piece is completely separate, including the endoskeleton (that way if you screw up you only have to redo an individual piece and not the whole gawl darn thing). It was an absolute pleasure making this and i hope you all enjoy it as well!

The picture samples are grainy for some reason. I swear if you click on them they will show the high res pictures.

Excellent work. The model kit technology that Japan is pushing is years ahead of anyone else. Multi-colour plastic on single sprues etc. The kits normally aren't cheap, but they're seriously ingenious.

Actually, they are pretty darn cheap compared to other gaming company model kits. That Gundam Mk-II is the same size as a Riptide, it not a little larger.

Bandai's Gundam Kits are:
- Snap fit (No glue required at all)
- Molded in Color (No painting required, or light painting depending on the kit)
- Hidden Sprue/Gate placement, very little prep work required
- Fully articulated (More than most action figures)

I highly recommend them to anyone that likes robots and needs a nice change of pace!

**EDIT**
And that model looks amazing as well. The paint and weathering is great!
