My plastic robot models came 10 days ahead of schedule. I ordered two High Grade kits: the Zaku II and the 0079 Gundam. Each cost me only 1p due to a pricing error. But they sent me the wrong kit – I got a Real Grade 0079 Gundam instead!
I slapped the Zaku II together this afternoon. It was a pretty easy build, especially as I’m used to 28mm or 1:72 models in hard styrene and pewter. I’m amazed at the engineering in a 2002 kit -the whole thing fits together by friction between the hard styrene and polycaps. It doesn’t feel like a real kit without glue for me! It seems to take heat and burning effects well (at least sprue does). I will probably weather it with inks, and do the blacklining with inks.
