1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia English Manual and Color Guide

1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia Construction Manual and Color Guide

Gundam 00 fans, or any Gundam Fan for that matter, who want to feel the fulfillment and accomplishment of having a large Gundam in their collection that is sure to stand out in your display cabinet but can't afford a Perfect Grade or HY2M Glorious kit should try the cheap 1/60 BigScale that Bandai releases.

I actually bought the 1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia already but haven't gotten around to building it. Not that I don't want to. Like a fine wine I'm trying to savor the build, but thinking about it now, the feeling for me really is more like a velociraptor circling its prey. I'm trying to build the confidence and skill set needed to built this kit by working first on smaller kits. Not that I'm planning anything fancy with this build, just want to build a "clean" direct out of the box build of this that I can be proud of.

The 1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia is selling for 3302 yen at Amiami, 4500 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 3,150 yen at HWJapan.
