Recovering from the awesomes of AFA09, I settled down for a nice little quiet evening of snap fitting of my recently acquired hoot from Hobby Art Gallery (a.k.a HAG). Initially I did not want to do any blogging but building this kit, I could not contain my eagerness to share my thoughts on the HGUC Unicorn and why its such an awesome kit to have!!
Point 1 : Details, details, details!
Point 2 : Minimal seamlines
In fact this is the first Gundam that I have built that does not have a seamline in the head area! I only detected four places to remove the seams. The back pack, the 2 shoulders and lastly the gun ^^. Minimal seamlines, more time for other stuffs 😀 That is a really big win for me!
Point 3 : Top notch color seperation
Point 4 : Well hidden nub marks for the clear parts
If you have worries about making marks on the clear parts, be rest assured this kit is well engineered. All the cut portions are tucked nicely under neath the armor! Kudos for Bandai in such a great though in design. The only clear parts one should worry are those on the shield and shoulders.
Point 5 : No worries on the transformation gimmick
The fact that I don’t have to transform this kit (I love this mode anyway) means no more worries about paint scratching, hours of getting the transformation right etc…lots of time and headaches saved!!
Well thats just a short post from me ^^ Just want to share my thoughts of the awesome kit. Have you guys ever experience getting something so fantastic that you just can’t help but share haha. Would love to hear them! I’ll be going slow this week to rest haha. All those editing during the weekend is just intense!! Just simply snap fit evenings for me…
Till the next post!
