HGUC 1/144 - MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom - Out of the Box -

HGUC 1/144 - MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom - OOB - 2

Out of the Box built Gouf last night and it is one sweet kit.  Lots of articulation compared to the other HG kit ive built and a wicked assembly, most of the sprue marks are hidden and the only seem line are on the back of the leg, unreal!

So easy to pose, especially with the clenched fist. Hope these fist are something regular with the new HG kits, make them look great when standing in non action pose. Think this started with HGUC kit 100 Unicorn Gundam and looks like all the feddie suit get a new sprue just for fist and open relaxed hands.

Big gun and a sword, somebodies ready for battle.

Cool little feature at the shoulder, there's a little notch so that when the arms is raised, the arms locks in so that a pose with the Gatling Gun is kept in place, simple.

Going to do a little research and see how i can add more detail, panel line and maybe some metal parts. Thinking about slightly copying the panel on the RG Zaku II
