This style of kit should be familiar with anyone who has done any MG and particularly Seed kits. The joints are satisfyingly stiff when assembled unlike some other MG's I've done and the buster cannon looks great pieced together in either of the configs. The mounting arms to the side skirts of the model work great to ensure the limbs don't sag under the weight of the cannon. If there's any downside it's the common complaint that there's no action base included. This kit took me less than 10 hours to assemble and panel line and the colouring does a good job to differentiate between other Gundams.
