this awesome! I can be fooled that Bandai made this. Would look great next to an MG Ball.

Enthusiast, This is amazing and your work on this kit is just stunning!

Fantastic review my friend!!

The way they have "MS Garage" on the box, it would really look amazing next to any Gunpla!

Excellent work. The kit came

Excellent work. The kit came out great. I especially love the casted look of the silver. It's things like this that make me want to build more kits. After the Spinner I reviewed here, I pretty much tapped out. I have an Ultraman MAT vehicle 90% done that I have yet to review here and this may have very well inspired me to finish it. The photography is really good too.

"There aren’t any major

"There aren’t any major sub-assemblies with seams requiring sanding. "

Do you mean that all the panels are designed with seams that fit together naturally as part of the detailing? Certainly that's a nice effect with the orange outer parts, since they're designed to be removed and therefore should have visible seams at their edges, but it seems like the silver/grey mechanical parts would have to have some places where the seams would be unsightly.

Unpainted pictures?

Do you have any pictures of this unpainted. Also, do you get enough parts for one kit in one box and if you want to build another version, you have to buy another box, or can you build both from one box?

Recognizer: There aren't any joints which are intended to read as smooth, like where a Gundam figure's leg or arm panels wrap the frame. The panels are mostly delineated to appear as distinct, and the gray mechanical parts have defined edges where parts meet. Any gaps or joints make visual sense or are intentional, if that makes sense.

Alex: Parts are included for two complete models. I didn't take any pictures of unpainted builds, but this review shows what they look like unpainted:

More questions

I apologize if these bother you, Mr. Enthusiast, but there are no reviews on Youtube so I still have some questions.
1. Is it a snap together pre painted kit or do you have to glue it?
2. Would you recommend this to a beginner/intermediate level model builder, because I have only built a couple of model kits before.
3. How much would this cost include shipping to the US from Japan.
Thank you!
