And we're back. Joining us today are the Victory Gundam's arms.
As you can see they aren't fully assembled yet. This is because the last pieces were painted and have yet to dry. Fortunately for us, the assembly involves putting those pieces on almost at the end so I was able to put the rest of the arms together and take some pics.
I will restate how impressed I am with the engineering of this kit. Not only do the arms assemble in a way that facilitates transformation, but the individual pieces, though small, are highly detailed. Check out the mold of the hands!
The thumb is just like any other MG thumb and has movement but on the Victory Gundam the fingers are molded as one piece. Because of this, Bandai included three different sets of hands.; open, closed fist, and one for holding weapons.
How small are these hands? They are so small that my camera has problems focusing on them, even on macro setting. Damn camera.
It was at this point that I decided to test build the head. There I encountered...
Look at the size of these stickers! Well, putting on a ridiculously small sticker isn't too hard, however if you look carefully at how they are cut you will notice that the sticker for the eyes has some red with it. But my mecha is no longer red. I had to think of a solution.
And I did! And it worked out great! And it looks awesome! The next entry will detail how I went about getting it so.
'Til then, a sneak peak at the feet. I love Gundam feet! (Gundam foot fetish?!)
