#Gunpla #Gundam #model #kits #beginners Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:

It all comes down to taste! If you’re concerned and want a guaranteed starting point, the Entry Grade line mentioned above is a great place to start. There are three kits in the series so far: the classic Gundam RX-78-2 from the original series, the Nu Gundam from Char’s Counterattack, and the Strike Gundam from Gundam SEED. Again, there are variations, ranging from the cheapest bare-bones sets with few additional accessories, to more complete option packs with more weapons.
Additionally, if you’re already a Gundam fan, just go with designs from your favorite series – chances are there will be an HG kit of these, although the more obscure the mobile suit, the older the kit will be , and not as comfortable or as well constructed as modern kits in terms of their constructions. If you’re just here for the mecha modeling factor and not Gundam specifically, then check out some kits and see what designs appeal to you!
If you’re looking for a personal recommendation when you’re ready to import (and maybe wait, as they often sell out quickly), the HG Witch From Mercury line has been consistently excellent so far. The latest kits Bandai is making at the moment have all been incredibly fun yet simple builds, packed with cool techniques and details that give you an amazing end product. I’ve loved every one I’ve built, but a special shout out to the Gundams Lfrith and Aerial and Guel’s Darilbalde.
