BLOG: HGUC Gundam AN-01 "Tristan" – Straight Build Preview
|Well ahead of its June 2017 release, the Bandai Hobby Development Blog has released a straight build preview of the HGUC Gundam AN-01 "Tristan" from Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight AXIS.
Sticking to its in-universe origin, and confirming previous speculations, this kit is also a derivative of the HGUC Gundan NT-1 (i.e. older kit engineering). That said, the blog claims that the armor and weapons are mostly new parts. The amount of paint needed here is also the same as the HGUC Alex — mostly for the vent areas.
Speaking of paint, the beam rifle would definitely need a coating as it only comes in all white, while the design is blue on the upper portion.
