Additions to the armor brigate: GN-001 Gundam Exia.

This kit was sitting in the box since January, got it to familiarize myself with the large 1/60 kits. I must say this kit is large, but giving it a second thought, I might notice it can’t serve as a reference for a Perfect Grade kits.

Painting it was somehow a challenge. Getting the white color just right for the first time turned into a disaster. According to the manual – 100% white and a drop of blue. Well, in my case the drop was to large and color turned into a blueish smudge. Have to notice: mixing white with gloss or matte blue will produce different results – learned it the hard way as well.

For the shoulder pads and shield accents chose darker blue – looks better, IMHO.

Did I mention that this kit is big, I surely did. With GN sword extended, it won’t fit into IKEA’s Detolf at all. So it landed on top of it.

Kit’s details are acceptable. Didn’t really expect too much from a Non Grage kit.

GN drive’s exhausts detailed with clear plastic and reflective stickers, still look good though.

Now to the bad. Posability of this kit is utterly atrocious. Because of the sheer weight of this thing joints can’t hold it al all. And because it’s a NG kit – joints are similar to 1/60’s High Grade.

On the contrary, fingers are fully articulated, just like MG’s.

Here’s my armor brigade so far…
