Great Kit! But prepare yourself before purchase!
I picked up this kit and boy was I in for a build! The other reviews have touched upon this, but most of the kit is plated in the bandai candy-coating gold. This is to say that it is a layer of chrome-ish paint then coated with clear yellow, which gives it a great gold colour! However this presents a few issues when cutting the pieces from the runner.
First, pick yourself up a gold paint-type gundam marker, it masks the nub marks (which are white, and apparent) extremely well! it even allows you to do some accenting if you choose (it's fun to do a small amount of custom work here and there!). After you cut the gold parts from the runner and dispose of the marks, apply the gold paint and allow them to dry, you'll be happy you did.
The build of the kit is pretty fun! It took a while to complete with the touch ups, but the end process is absolutely gorgeous. The armed armor DEs add a bit of weight to it, so be sure to secure it with a display stand! The transforming gimmick is a fun little thing to tinker around with as well.
Overall, if you're a fan of Unicorn or Narrative, this is a great kit to pick up, one that I would definitely build again. Just be sure to take care with the nub marks and you'll be fine! Luckily you can buy the gold marker on this site as well.
Thank you for your feedback!
