Gundam GP-01FB Perfect Grade 1/60   Leave a comment

This is Bandai’s Perfect Grade Gundam GP-01FB, from the series Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memories.  Perfect Grade kits from Bandai are (for Gundam at least) 1/60 scale, which makes them around a foot tall, and feature the most detailed representation of the mecha.  PG kits include complete internal skeletons, with all of the armor assembled around the frame, providing an extremely posable and detailed model to work with.  This model is from a few years ago now, but I’m still quite pleased with how it came out.  It won Best of Show at a local hobby shop competition, and is now on display there.

The GP-01FB is the space-optimized upgrade of the GP-01 testbed prototype Unit 1.  Because it is a space mecha, I did not add any dirt or rust to the weathering.  I did all marks from small debris impacts, which I imagine would happen often as the Unit 1 FB is zipping around in space blowing stuff up.
