Low-priced yet nicely detailed, this snap-fit First Grade kit of Gundam Virtue from “Gundam 00” will be a breeze for experienced modelers and a good learning experience for newcomers to build and practice basic modeling skills on before moving up to higher grade levels. Polycaps are included for basic articulation at the neck, shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles. Runners are molded in white, black, red, gray, and yellow, with foil stickers for some details. While painting is not required for this model, it will be necessary if you want show-accurate details, and would add a more realistic appearance to the final product. (The pictures shown above are of a completed and painted kit.) Instructions are in Japanese but are extremely well illustrated so anyone can follow them.
