#1008 / High Grade Universal Century / RX-78NT-1FA Gundam NT-1 [Chobham Armor]

When I decided to build the stock configuration and Chobham armor-equipped HGUC Gundam NT-1 as two separate kits, the question of whether to shoot them as two separate galleries came to mind. In the end, I thought that cramming two different-looking mobile suits in the same 12-photo gallery would do these kits a little disservice. … Continue reading #1008 / High Grade Universal Century / RX-78NT-1FA Gundam NT-1 [Chobham Armor]

#1007 / High Grade Universal Century / RX-78NT-1 Gundam NT-1 “Alex”

I've been building kits at a (sort of kind of) consistent pace, but I haven't been posting CATALOGUE Entries of these kits at the same (sort of kind of) consistent pace.

Prior to diving into this double build, I already knew some prep work was needed to be done. Consider the Gundam NT-1 design. Several thrusters are placed all over the mobile suit, each needed a little drop of orange and black paint to bring out the details. Not to mention some of these thrusters are … Continue reading All That Prep Work! Work-in-Progress #1: HGUC Gundam NT-1 “Alex”

I’m Doing Doubles Again! HGUC Gundam NT-1 “Alex”

The last double build I did was the first HGUC Zeta Gundam kit, and that took me a good couple of years to finish -- mainly due to procrastination but that's still two years. With that in mind, I decided to do yet another double build this early in 2020. This time, it's the HGUC … Continue reading I’m Doing Doubles Again! HGUC Gundam NT-1 “Alex”
