A Fork in the Road: Rick Dias vs New Build

A Fork in the Road: Rick Dias vs New Build

I thought I was done already with the MG Rick-Dias that I had repainted because of the paint stripping issue. But while contemplating on what to build next after the 1/100 NG Cherudim Gundam, I suddenly chanced upon the thought of re-touching the MG Rick Dias.

I still have some kits unbuilt by me: 1/60 Gundam Exia, 1/100 Gundam Arios, 1/100 Gundam Astray Red Frame and the recently arrived 1/100 Over Flag. Still a toss up for me on what to build next if ever I forego the Rick Dias.

The Rick Dias was the first Master Grade kit I ever assembled. It was also the first Mobile Suit design I've ever taken a fancy too, because it came from the first Gundam series I've ever watched (Zeta Gundam). Not surprising now why the kit is so special to me.

If ever I decide to revisit the Rick Dias, the first thing I'll be doing is cleaning up the kit. What with the dust and all *snicker*
