Here it is, the “Alex” Gundam in HG! Featuring all the greatness it does in 0080, this rendition of the NT-1 should satisfy any fan of the OVA. It comes with the wrist-mounted Gatling guns, beam rifle, beam saber, and all the extra armor pieces so it can be displayed in both modes. It is also 100% pre-colored and snap-together, so no paint or glue is required to complete it. Hooray!
Great Old Kit...Except the Clear Decals
I didn't realize this was a 2004 kit when I purchased it, so I was a bit nervous considering the stories I had heard about pre-2014 kits. However, this was my simplest build since I started this hobby. It's a take on a classic cool design, articulation is decent given the age of the kit, and the nub marks/stressed plastic is hard to see.
The caveat is the clear decals are a massive pain! They're hard to pull on and off and crinkle VERY easily. The crinkling I accidentally made on the blue chest is really hard to ignore.
One last point, the lines on this kit are very clear, so I think it's a great one for practicing panel lining. This is the first one where I'm going to make the attempt.
