My 11th Master Grade model. Bought during the holiday.
Having a one week holiday means that I had to speed up my work-in-slow-progress into an express one.
I spent about 5 days to complete this MG, including the building, decals, coating and photo taking in its normal mode.
Will snap the photos for the repair mode when I go back home in half a month's time.
So as usual, I still prefer the semi gloss coating. Anyway having repair parts means that flat coat is needed. I coat the repair parts as well as the inner part of the shields with flat.
The tough part of coating them is that there are lots of part is not meant to be coated.
The GN condensers, cables, and the bling bling parts. Therefore before I coated them, I had to remove those parts away.
But specifically for the shoulder's cable, I didn't get to detach it from the shoulder armor, therefore I had to mask it.
With normal cellophane tape. No money to buy made in Japan tamiya masking tape.
But nonetheless it's still effective in covering those parts up from the coat.
Completed Gundam Exia with its seven swords.
One thing I like about Exia is its whole set of swords. Quite the Final Fantasy like.
I found the chromed bling bling parts on the swords and blades a little bit unnecassary. It may look better on the sword, but just plain weird for the blades since they are supposed to be entirely white on the blades.
GN short blade and the beam dagger. A surprising blade which made up from 7 pieces of parts. Very master-gradish indeed.
The GN long blade. The chromed part on the edge of the blade outshines.
A full view with the ignition mode parts apart from the seven swords.
The GN drive isn't cool without lighting it up. I still haven't manage to buy the LR41 batteries. I need 4 of them to light the GN drive up. A USB operated ignition perhaps?
Quite dissappointed that plenty of part swapping needed for the repair mode. I was expecting the entire repair mode head unit will be given but only the damaged parts are given and have to detach the normal mode ones to swap them.
The broken sword looks really cool then the intact ones.
Gundam Exia with its full equipment seven swords and shield attached.
Will continue the review next time.
Time to study ENT.
