Gundam Virtue - 1/100 Bandai Kit
I can't say much about the 1/100 Gundam Virtue Bandai Kit - except for the fact that this is one unique kit.
If you want a breath of fresh air with the current kits, try your hand on Virtue, because despite of the obvious issues with it (having to dismantle the outer armor to reveal Nadleeh, hollow armor parts to accommodate Nadleeh etc.) it is still one fun kit to build.
One fun thing about this kit is the detailed armor. If you are the hobbyist who loved to ink details, then this kit will keep you busy for days. But I guess if you like the washing method, I think it would be difficult to reach some of the extra detailed parts of the huge Virtue armor.
But maybe, that's just me...
One more thing about this kit is that it's only priced at 2000 to 2300, and you get to build 2 kits, well not literally but in concept, lolx!
Anyway, just remember to keep this baby in a decent stand so as to appreciate the sheer weight of its excellence! Wakokokoko!
Oh and if you like making dioramas, then you might want to consider making a Virtue to Nadleeh transformation scene - COOL!!!!
BTW, sorry Nadleeh images are not in this post, because it is a bit of a hassle to remove the armor (but it is doable, tamad lang ako lolx) and I like the Virtue form better!
Again, for all 00 fans out there, this is a 5/5 must have!!
