thats true in my opinion. but some models are a little more tricky to finish, like the sinanju because it has quite a lot of small and fragile pieces.
but if you have built the unicorn already then every other MG shouldnt be a problem^^

and personally i have made great experiences with waterslide decals :O i only used those from revell so far bur they worked pretty nicely!
the first time i used them was pretty weird though XD especially when one of them got in contact with plastic cement glue and just completely melted away XD

Agreed, building kits themselfs arent hard at all, the decals however, ugh, they are my worst enemy when it comes to building kits.

Well, for some reason I think there are actually kits that are hard to build. Like old model kits that needs plastic cement. But I know that's not what you're talking about :P Still, there are some kits like MG Zeta Plus A1, wherein you need to shoot the cloth inside a plastic wire, which is hard. And there are also some complicated to build kits like MG Sinanju and MG Red Frame that has small parts. But, that comes close as tricky. Whether you call it hard or not, it's up to you :P

StrikeFreedomV2 2011-10-05 08:04

Having build both MG Blue and Red Frame, I got say the build is kinda easy, BUT removing some the leftoverplastic was really difficult. On some parts there was unnecessasary plastic for no reason at all and you needed to remove that for the parts to fit toghether. Those kits are the only ones so far that had problem. At least those are the only ones I know of.

There are some kits that are legitimately harder to build, especially transforming kits. They tend to have a lot of small, fragile pieces that tend to break easily. Some other kits that come to mind.. the MG F91, which had a knee that was bitch to slide into place.

same sentiments....my 1st MG F-91 experience with the knee is a total horror

MG non transforming kits are still lesser stress to do than transforming kits. Transforming kits ( esp for Zeta ver2 , Delta Puls, Zeta A1/C1, S , Ext (s), ZZ) tends to be floppy & have to decide between MS form or MA form

Just get the 00 series MG kits. They're really good quality, look good, and you'll have fun building it.

tbh, the zeta A1 wasn't hard to build, if you follow instructions and have proper tools i dont see how any gunpla model would be hard to build, annoying? yes. hard? not really, the F91 isn't hard, but the parts are small and you have to be careful with them :)

some of the older kits are more difficult to build because bandais old manuals sucked^^
the most difficult MG kit that i have built so far is probably the Ex-S

lol now that I can understand as being rather tricky on the whole, since I read that the S Gundam had a 30 page manual I'd hate to think what Ex-S would be like:p

or PG for that matter.

But I agree that these models aren't really hard, it's all snap fit, it's much more taxing when you making the stuff that requires polycement>__<

btw whats better or more, what would people get a Stike IWSP or Luka Strike + IWSP?
Hard time thinking which one I want.

the Ex-S was just totally different from anything i have built so far^^ tons of screws, you build it onto the base and many parts because it transforms... it was quite the challenge compared to other models^^

suiton629 2011-10-05 14:06

still want that MG Exia R2, MG Astraea, and SD Astraea...

Depends on your preference of either the original Strike or the Strike Noir. The main bodies are just recolors of the two. In terms of extra weapons though you get alot of them with Strike IWSP, like the Pistols, 2 Beam Rifles, the Shild Gatling and some more stuff I canīt remember. I would recommend checking dalong for that.

I think you're referring to the Strike-E for the whole list of extra weapons. The Strike+IWSP only comes with a pair of swords, gatling sheild and the grand slam. The Strike-E comes with those and 2 beam pistols and 2 beam rifles with some bazooka attachment.

The Strike+IWSP uses the same body as the MG Aile Strike, while the Strike-E uses the one of the Strike Noir, which is slightly more detailed. If I remember correctly some parts/thrustors were molded separately for the Strike-E

yes you are right.
if you want a strike with the IWSP then get luka's strike E + IWSP. it comes with a lot more weapons and the strike noir on which this is based is one of the best SEED kits bandai has ever made^^

Yea thats the 2 models I was on about.

Thanks for the info, looks like I'll just opt for the Luka's Strike-E:D

And the Noir is on my to get list already:p

Unfortunately, it's just a conversion. Might as well make my own :)

that's pretty cool, the knees look a bit out of place though.

latepost but still, my advice!

i'd go with the Strike-E + IWSP, the E comes with so many pretty accessories you can't pass it up, and it has a few parts diffrent from the regular strike!

if you plan on buying the noir too, i'd go with the regular strike + IWSP though, just so you can switch them around :3

For me, if it annoys me, it becomes hard. I don't have the tools at that time and looking for those is hard.

Well, I think he won't spare a page. A wishful thinking that if he does that, Bandai will hear his prayer :P

If you're planning to get the Strike-Noir, just get the Strike+IWSP, unless you already have many other Strikes like the Aile, Sword/Launcher, Rouge... and you want more Noir frames. haha!

The only thing that I'm disappointed with the MG +IWSP kits is that the grand slam is white. :( instead of chrome like the PG :( :( :(

Yup, I've seen some reviews on youtube and they look really good! I like how they did the colour separation in the chests of the Age-1 and Jesta! :)
