[Kit Insight] Bandai Hi-Resolution Model 1/100 XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero EW (Straight Build)
Model Number: XXXG-00W0 Designation: Colonies Liberation Organisation Prototype High Performance Mobile Suit The closest thing to a Metal Build Wing Gundam (for now)!
While the build itself is pretty fun as you bolt the armour pieces onto the prefabricated frame, the end product is pretty rickety, with certain areas which will clearly benefit from the use of cement or glue. Nonetheless, this version of the popular Wing Gundam Zero Custom is easily the most good-looking one!
I didn't really pose the Wing Gundam Zero EW simply because it feels so fragile and also because it can't hold its own Buster rifles properly (let alone the third party Drei Zwerg) without parts flying off left, right and center!
But as you can clearly see, the Hi-Resolution Model line looks gorgeous just out of the box, with sharp hues, beautiful colour separation (loving that grey-white interplay) and revised design for a classic, well-known mobile suit.
