Star Dust Memories, I really enjoyed this anime and the Mobile Suits design. This GP01 kit is old and quite hard to find in HG, but Bandai have released a RG recently.
I am not a fan of RG, it feels like too much work. I am a lazy builder.
The HG build process is quite straight forward. As usual good quality Bandai mould, no flashings and minimal seam lines.
Fairly good detailing and to be fair a bit of panel lining and a matt coat will be fine.
I do like the straight lines and angular profile of this gundam.
Not much to say about this kit, limited pose and standing with a bit of knee bent is the best I can get.
Would I recommend this kit?
It is a mixed bag of feelings. I really enjoyed this anime and the Mobile Suits design.
But this kit is old, and have very limited joint articulations. I also struggle to create other pose fearing that I will break something.
It has good colour separation which helps with painting.
I have no regret getting this kit and it looks good as it is on my shelf.
