    Hello Autocons!!! Finally got my hands on a long lost antique 1/144 scale Gundam Model kit. I believe this kit was released back in 1988 and it is a fully transformable kit (not a parts former). I had this kit before but ended up selling it back in the 90's. I had such a huge regret selling the kit. Since then, I could not find another one in any hobby stores. Decades later, i found one a month ago from a Korean gift shop. Boy, the box looked so old. Luckily, the old man sold it to me for 5 bucks. He probably didn't even know what it was (lol!). Lucky me.

    I expected the kit to be quite fragile and thought of just assembling it and not paint it. But surprisingly, it is still in top shape. So I painted it using a can of Tamiya gloss blue spray paint. Did some detail touch up paint jobs using flat Testor paints (white, black, sky blue). Seal the flat paint using MSP brush-on sealer. The kit looks and feels solid. No lose joints, crack panels, etc. Such an awesome kit. Check out some of the pics below...
