It's been a long haul (the project officially started August 4th, 2011) but my MG Delta Plus has finally been completed. This morning I flipped a coin to see which should come first, my retrospective of the kit or all the pretty photos. Thus, if you'd like to read about the trials and tribulations of this build continue on. If you'd just like to scope out the pretty pictures just jump forward to the latter section of this article!

MG Delta Plus - WIP Update 02

Been awhile since I've had a solid update regarding this project...



Things haven't been going so well. Lots of little issues here and there have been adding up. Just yesterday, I'm really close to finishing the legs, and the paint chips off on the same piece on each leg. FFF.

MG Detal Plus - Foot Fix

In my earlier review of the Delta Plus I mentioned that the feet have a habit of collapsing forward due to the weight and a loose joint in the foot. Since then it seems that I'm not the only one to experience the issue and figure it worthwhile to offer up some suggestions. I'm sure there will be more advanced solutions from the more experienced community members but what I offer are quick fixes. Nothing spectacular, nothing glamorous, but more than enough to mitigate the issue.


Fix 1 - Super Glue

As I mentioned in my review I figure the super glue trick might be able to help with the foot issue. After giving it a go I've found the results very satisfactory...


MG Delta Plus Review [Updated x2]


The MG Delta Plus was an instant day one purchase. Another in the line of fantastic designs from Gundam Unicorn, the Delta Plus is a worthy descendant of Kazumi Fujita's famous Zeta Gundam. Like him, or hate him, I think Hajime Katoki's Delta is fantastic. Design wise it's hard to argue against the aesthetics, but how would it fare as a Master Grade kit? As any Gundam modeler will tell you Bandai doesn't have the greatest of track record when it comes to transforming kits, both within and outside of the Zeta inspired lineage. So how well does this newest addition hold up? Let's take a look...
