You should see the childlike expression of Alfred when he showed me this HG Hi Gundam (Metallic Coating Version). It's priceless! Alfred recently gotten himself an awesome Gunpla cutter which he claimed would boost his Gunpla Meister level by at least 5. Lol.....Hence it gave him the drive to build this kit. Alfred had lent me his cutter and I agreed that the money was well invested. I too should upgrade my level. Hee! Hee! In actual fact, the cutter generates less sprue thus shortened the time needed for filing.
So much on the cutter, let's focus on the kit. It's no doubt Hi Nu Gundam is one of Alfred's favourite and definitely one of those stronger Gundams in U.C timeline, mainly contributed by those mind-controlled fin funnels. Its other weapons include head vulcans, beam saber, beam rifle and hyper bazooka. Even there's a lot of weapons, they are neatly arranged at the rear of the MS. Since the kit itself is metallic coated, there isn't much touch up required apart from applying those iconic Amuro Ray logo decals. Even though the kit is in 1/144 scale, Hi Nu Gundam towered over almost kits of the same scale. Most other 1/144 only reached Hi Nu Gundam's shoulder. This metallic coating version makes good memoir and certainly a tribute to Amuro Ray.
