This is a conversion kit for the MG Hi Nu Gundam put out by Vicious Project, a Korean based sculpting group. I started this project a few months ago, but got side tracked with the urge to complete a few figure projects first. Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, I can move this kit back to the top of the pile and work to finish it. For the last couple of months, only the torso and head were snapped. I finished snapping the rest of the kit over the past two days. This is an important step as it lets me see potential issues with the kit that I can fix prior to completing the kit. I also get a better idea on how to plan out the build progression. I have a lot of left over plastic from this kit, as the conversion kit pretty much replaces all the exterior armor pieces, including the shield.
The casting quality looks very nice.Â Ipm not sure about some of the decisions that Vicious Project made for some of the major joint areas, but I’ll fix/modify those as i come across them.Â I’m also debating if I want to make the kit fixed pose or leave it with the current mobility.Â It is pretty resin extensive, so weight may become an issue.Â I’ll leave the fixed or free pose question for later.Â Now the ever fun task of surface prep must start.
