Let’s get the ball rolling on this. Like GaiGun, things are busy for me as well, so I’ve only finally been able to sit down with this kit serious yesterday. One thing is I haven’t noticed much V Gundam talk on English blogs, so this collaboration will perhaps be one of the first serious looks at this kit.
In a word, this Victory will be small. As GaiGun has mentioned、lots of small pieces, but they’ve also managed to pack in a fairly tight transformation and inner frame into this. How small is this? Take a look at these runners.
Yeah, that’s right, we’re talking the same size as 1/144 pieces, in an MG. That also means the waterslides, of which there are more than the Sinanju I think, will be small too. Man, I’m hoping I don’t break/slice/rip anything here…
Anyways, as mentioned, we’ll be painting all but the white pieces and inner frame with this build. Thankfully there isn’t much to paint, and I can actually worry about that later since the included bonus clear runner is the same runner as the blue parts.
I’ve started on the arm and shoulder, which I can do save for the lower arm which requires a red part. Again, as you can see, a lot of small pieces for such a tiny arm.
The plan is to finish up the legs today and tomorrow and hopefully prime Saturday and do initial painting on Sunday, but that depends on weather and wife!
