I ran out of new models to work on so I took a look at my old stuff and one model stood out, it was the 1/60 No Grade God Gundam. The model wasn’t damaged at all luckily and the paint on it was easy to remove but what made me want to work on it more than anything was just how rare this model is. I got it went it first came out and from what I have seen it’s pretty hard to find.
Like a lot of older models the proportions suck and the articulation is horrible. Considering I will probably never find another one of these I thought I should make it look as good as possible so I had to modify it extensively.
I rebuilt the foot joints, the knee joints, the thigh joints, the arm joints, the shoulder joint, I also had to scratch build the entire forearms and elbows. Being that is is a NG 1/60 model the plastic is heavy and thick making joint modification very difficult (can’t just go to town with pla plates and polycaps). So it not only took awhile to build but it also took awhile to even figure out how to build it.
