Bandai 1:200 RX-78-2 Gundam SpeedGrade
Picked this up for $5 US in AX 2008. It is such as good deal for a quick build and have fun with my kids. Don't forget to comment at the bottom to show your support!
This is the US version. So, it is in a ziplock bag instead of a box.
The instruction is printed in the internal card holder with nice pictures and stuffs on it.
Yeah, it is painted nicely.
Six runner parts are included.
I started with the head. Cut out the seam and sand them as needed.
Next is the touch up of the body.
The paint job is not perfect, so I have to fix it. There is yellow paint covering the blue parts.
Move minor fixing after the body is built.
For extra coloring, I used my gundam markers.
Do extra coloring of the backpack.
Top part is built and touch up and waiting to dry.
Attached to the base to keep the kid happy.
I moved on to the weapons. More sanding and touch up.
The arms are next.
It is supposed to be snap fit but it does not really fit perfectly. So, I have to glue and press it to stablized.
Shield and arms are done.
Going to the next leg.
Not bad for $5.
After some minor panel lines. Here are some light box shoots (the ones above are from the workshop):
Have you try a speedgrade gunpla?
