BLOG: 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam "Ver. Ka" – Work in Progress #1
|Hong Kong-based Model Kit World magazine included a supplementary kit in its April 2016 issue, just like those from Hobby Japan or Dengeki Hobby. And it’s not just upgrade or supplementary parts, it’s actually a complete kit — a 1/144 scale RX-78-2 Gundam "Ver. Ka".
Bandai hasn’t released one in the aforementioned scale so this is definitely a third-party kit. And it’s not just a third-party High Grade-esque kit, this one has an inner frame though it’s worlds apart from those of Real Grades.
As expected from these releases, there’s a lot of work needed to be done as parts didn’t fit seamlessly and there’s a lot of mold flash. It also doesn’t help that the manual doesn’t make sense at times. But at least it includes a sheet of water slide decals to complete the Katoki look. Hoping to complete this one in the following week.
