Work in Progress Report: MG 1/100 XXXG-01H Gundam Heavyarms (MG)


Progress report for the MG Heavyarms

The start of the year didn’t really go so well for me, even though I ended the year strong with the Unboxing of the MG Barbatos. But afterward, I was somewhat finding myself uninspired and unmotivated to work on anything. I decided then the best way to get me out of that is just to give me some time off from building altogether. This is why eventhough I was starting work on the chest unit earlier on, it is only today you guys get to see some sort of progress update made by me.

But regardless I am quite happy to be back working on the MG Heavyarms again and for some weird reason, I do feel rewarded for it. Because I find myself quite surprised to find that even at my current progress there is so much here that I experience that manages to really impress me.

So without ado, I will let the picture and comments on the pictures do the talking in my stead. Although, admittedly this might not be as picture laden as all the other previous iteration of the WIP blog posts.

Anyways, lets us get into it, shall we?

When I started I was quite impressed by how simple and fun all of these was to build. The inner frame looked really simple at first, so I was frankly wasn’t expecting much in the coming progress…..
But I was wrong to think that way, because towards the end of this I still managed to find myself to be impressed by it. It wasn’t just a fun section to work on, it was as well one of the best looking MG chest units that I’ve worked on. The MG Heavyarms as well managed to be one of those kits that have really awesome color separation on its parts and whats more the color seen on the parts looked so good that there is really no need for one to pick up the brush for this one if you are a fan of the original colors.

Even if you are thinking of doing custom paintwork on you MG Heavyarms, you will find that Bandai does make life alot easier for you guys by segmenting the parts really well here and the MG Heavyarms is as well one of those rare kits that I really have trouble finding the seam lines for this one. Even more surprising is the fact that even though the MG Heavyarms has alot of separate individual parts here, the kit still manages to be quite solid overall.

You can as well see how intricately designed the MG Heavyarms parts was here. Yes, I admit that I have seen the pictures of this section prior to this. However, the pictures that I saw really didn’t do justice on how awesome this looks in real life. I was quite frankly mindblown by this one single section.

But it wasn’t just a section that looks good and fun to build. It was something that I feel sets a precedence of a great many things to come. Even at this early stage, I’m really starting to have a strong feeling that towards the end of this build I will end up with a stronger positive opinion of the kit.

Or it could turn the other way around, who knows.? But regardless of that, at the very least my initial experience has been quite positive, and I am glad to start the year with working on this MG kit.

With that ends this week Work in Progress post for the MG 1/100 XXXG-01H Gundam Heavyarms (MG). What do you think of my thoughts on the kit and how the MG kit looked so far? Did you experience the same things that we did? Or did you guys find out things that we didn’t? When I restarted work on the MG Heavyarms one of the things that I really didn’t expect is on how much I would find myself enjoying the time I spend working on the MG Heavyarms chest unit.

Which is something of a nice surprise for me really, I really can’t wait to see what else I would experience here with this awesome kit.

Anyways, we will be back again with more Let’s Talk Gunpla segment on this coming Wednesday and Friday! Kimi as well will be back again on the next Monday with a new Unboxing or a Review blog post. So do look forward to that!
