Still no sign of Red Frame, and i’m getting twitchy for a bit of gunpla so i’m delving into my last HG kit, the GN-0000 00 Raiser
As well as being my last current HG kit, this was the final kit I purchased last year on new years eve in Tokyo as I had a bit of extra suitcase space.
I should probably mention i’m not the greatest fan of the 00 Raisers design, the wings are cool but the docking of the 0 Raiser’s body feels a bit tacked on to me and makes the whole unit a bit back heavy. I’m hoping this kit might change my mind!
Right let’s have a nosey at the kit itself!
Lots of runners! and a stand included too, nice! I’ve heard this kit was designed with posability in mind and some of these joint designs certainly look interesting to say the least.
Just a few of the many blades that come with this one, i’m a little disappointed there’s only one beam saber blade though.
Lots of foil stickers included. I’ll certainly use the eyes and the GN condenser decals. The others i’m going to try and dump and use paint instead. Looks like alot of parts on this kit have been merged together to improve stability and/or reduce production costs.
This for instance, the vertical fins are supposed to be yellow, but have been single molded into the v-fin. The yellow sticker attached would look absolutely cack, paintings a must. The red sticker is also for the red center bit of the fin, which has been molded clear for this kit, luckily I bought some clear red Tamiya paint not so long ago 🙂
Finally, the GN drives are a little disappointing. They have these huge gaping holes in them which would really have some kind of vent or vernier in them, I’ll have to have a rummage and see what I can find to glue in there!
