I was itching to build my very first RX-78 GP02A Physalis for a very long time now, and now I finally get to do so.
A straight look at the box, the kit is quite massive for its scale.
Looking at sample photos of this behemoth it gives me the image of a walking fortress.
Everything is up-sized with this Gundam, even the shield!
For an older kit that came out in 2006, it’s pretty much advanced for its time. It’s the very first kit I owned so far from that period that has joints on its arm connectors much like the ones in older MG kits.
The majority of the grey parts are made of ABS plastic, which is now commonly used in inner frames and joints of Master Grade kits.
This mobile suit’s head is also bulky.
So far I managed to complete half of it.
The rest will be in the next post, I’ll see you guys later!
