1/48 Gundam, WIP Update #3

Body: 

I really need to keep track of what updates I post here. Apparently all of my 1/48 Gundam status updates have different titles and different tags. Stupid me.

Anyhow, here's my Mega Size 1/48 Gundam as it stands right now...

Still lots of work to do. Plenty of lines need to be refinished, some of the gold and silver details need to be touched up, a little bit of weathering, and at some point a final top coat.

What we have here is Bandai's 1/48 scale Mega Size Model Gundam RX-78-2. As far as I know it's Bandai's largest general release kit. At 15" tall it dwarfs even Perfect Grade kits.

In general the kit is very simple. No internal frame, no special gadgets or gizmos. All the joints are done with poly caps which feature a unique toothed design. With these little notches the kit does a fantastic job at staying in place. Even the arm has no difficulty holding the large shield in place.
