[Kit Insight] HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. SG50 (Painted Build)
As our only national Gundam, I cannot just do a straight build and call it a day!
Thankfully the greys still work well with the reddish-orange and white parts!
The decals leave a little to be desired, some just wrap around details in the armor while others will likely come off with time, so it's best to topcoat this beauty once you are done with it. Weapons-wise, I can't understand Bandai's regression on the beam saber, but the metal chain for the Gundam Hammer is a nice touch. The stock bazooka was been replaced with a nicer-coloured third party version that is more in line with the overall colour scheme.
The SG50 Gundam is nice, meaningful way for us Singaporeans to celebrate the nation's 50th year of independence, scalpers notwithstanding.
