Real Grade (RG) Standard Green Zaku II - Built

The MS-06F Zaku II Real Grade grunt green type, design to follow Master Grade 3.0 with flexible inner frame and armour that comes in different shades. The articulation of this 1/144 scale are fantastic but come with the agony of posing it, fearing the joint brokerage and fallen parts. Real Grade are seriously not my cup of tea. Though the fingers can clench, it couldn't quite grip the weapon. In my opinion, there's too many small parts which may run the risk of losing them. 

Applying the stickers can be quite the pain as well and best using a tweezer. I can understand the need for details when it comes to Gunpla of bigger scale. It's probably my inferior skill to handle tiny stuff. Good thing this was done by Kenny Ang. Gimmicks included eye movement as the head rotates. Optional commander antenna and various rank stickers. This kit you see was done by Kenny Ang with additional metal studs, 3D mono key sticker and matte top coat.

It’s curious how too much detail could be a drawback for some people, like you pal... This release of the Real Grade line was, in my opinion, the answer for a mass of gunpla builders, that have been loyal followers of the 1:144 scale models... They were asking for this level of detail, reserved for the recent MG kits... I guess that, albeit the MG kits are great scale models, these take as well more space for display... And well, as you said, the 1:144 scale models with this level of detail, require a steadier hand and additional tools for proper modeling and/or finishing, not to mention more patience with tiny parts; but it’s fine when someone else has done the hard job... =D

I don't deny this is an awesome kit with all the details any modeler can get from a 1/144 scale. I'm the odd one out as my love remains with MG kit. RG is a loved by many and a kit to train our patience : )
