So it only took about 5 weeks to complete one HG kit. At this rate, my backlog is going to take years to finish. Anyways, while later than the rest of the crowd, here are a few pictures. I didn’t bother with the weapons since I’ve already got like 5 beam rifles and Gundam Hammers from other kits. This Gundam is doing nothin but pimpin 7-11. Anyways, tackling one kit at a time!
Continuing on with the Extra Finish Version love this week, and my second look at an HGUC Gundam Ver. G30th kit this month. Next up is the Gundam Expo only limited kit HGUC Gundam Ver. G30th + EX Gundam Trailer Full Color Finish version. Now that is a mouthful. First off, let me just say, this is probably the best looking Extra Finish kit I’ve seen to date. The colors on both the Gundam and the trailer all come off really nice and burnished, and being mainly darker colors all around, gate sprue damage doesn’t stand out as much as it does on say the Zaku II or the Hyaku-shiki. This gives it more of an “adult look” for lack of a better term, than your regular version does.
As for the build, it’s another G30 kit, my third to date, so there is nothing new there. The trailer is also a quick build, but a perfect fit for the Gundam, and again the extra finish looks really nice on it. There’s not much else to say about this particular version other than that it looks fantastic. I would definitely consider it in an MG size if they released one and minimized on gate sprue damage. Unfortunately a bit pricy of a kit, but if you can track one down it’s well worth it and highly recommended due to the coloring.
As always, pictures speak louder than words, so please enjoy the gallery.
