1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia

1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia

Update (03/29/2010): Translated English Manual and Color Guide can be found here.

Just arrived for me today from the post office, the 1/60 GN-001 Gundam Exia kit of Bandai that I ordered from HWJapan. Right now I can't get to working on it just yet because I'm still finishing the 1/100 Gundam Kyrios from Bandai. I had however translated the Color Guide for the Gundam Exia to English in preparation for the arrival of this kit. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to translate these color guides, considering that I don't have a working airbrush set yet... hehehe. I do have the airbrush, its the compressor thats still way out of reach for my budget.

Here's a shot of the box in perspective with a box for a Master Grade Rick Dias and a 1/72 VF-25G Messiah Michael Custom. Its only slightly bigger and thicker than these two boxes.

Here's a picture of the box first opened up. Manual is at the bottom of the box.

Here's a shot of parts all strewn out from the box. I don't know if its just me or does the plastic packaging seem a little bit thinner than the regular plastic packaging that the plates come in?

Putting everything back into the box again for later construction.
