I went back to Gunpla because of Gundam Wing series. And that was more than 10 years ago. Back then, I had to contend with High Grades only and was wondering why Bandai did not release master grade versions. So when they announce just that, I was ecstatic even though the wait was really long. HA is my favorite for the series as I like heavy weaponry/ armament mechas. I painted three HGs (1/100) for this one!
With 12 runners, construction is fairly simple. Parts can be separated easily for painting with virtually no seam lines. Even the blue strips at the chest consist of two parts which eliminates masking.
It comes with a cockpit of course!
Hatches at the missile pods more durable now and the missiles can be separated to facilitate painting.
I love this gatling gun/ drum set.
Overall, this kit is good. You can do decent poses with it. And it's the final piece of the jigsaw for all Wing fans! :)
