Today, we have something special from a local hobby supplier MGS2U.
Aya is on the scene.
No, this NOT a Bandai kit. More of a unofficial SD kit from another company and no, it is NOT a bootleg as Bandai never did an SD Sentinel. Ever.
The fire-bombs might be from the “purist”.
The manual is quite exquisite, book-format full glossy 80 gram paper.
Sort of meaning I can’t read, then again there’s always the wiki. =)
The material used for this is quite similar to Bandai’s SD kits from the late 90’s. Some parts have good colour separation while others… Get some paint ready.
Yes, this kit has an LED for its eyes.
Yes, it came in a sealed pouch.
Some parts like this one had to be sand quite a bit, so does for the MAJORITY of the pegs. This is NOT for the faint-hearted or the average builder.
My initial comments, this kit is again, not from Bandai, nor its a bootleg, nor is it official. It maybe an SD kit, but only to those who are already experience in techniques such as sanding, figuring out semi-confusing manual illustrations, painting and patience may apply.
Took me a good deal of the day in doing only snap-fitting/jury-rigging with the time-honour frustration of nub removal. The nubs for this kit is… Amazing. Amazingly odd. And I haven’t touch about the seamlines, now…
To be continue.
