Bandai HGUC 1/144 RX-75 Guntank


Got the Guntank built up really fast compared to the Gundam, this one i think i built in about an hour then maybe 15 minutes with the marker doing the panel lines.

Think it a really strange mobile suit myself, when everything else has got legs and a head that looks like a robot this has tracks and a head that looks like a cockpit. The big cannons on the shoulder look right out of place as well, doubt it could fire and reload on its hinged at the very bottom of the cannon, just seems out of place when the other suits look like they could actually exist.


Read that you could make dull the plastic down and make it look more realistic if i spray it with some protection seal like i use to protect my paint work but for some reason got all this really bad frosting that i can't seem to get rid of. Bit of a shame but means i can't paint it up and hopefully look quite good. it did dull the plastic down though.


Only the Guncannon to put together now.

It look good with much painting. Guntank was one of my childhood toy. I am waiting for the re-issue Guntank model kit here.

Yes! Leon almost bought a HCM Pro Guntank the day we went shopping after Gundam Fiesta. Ha! Ha!
