Work in Progress: HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam (HG Gundam the Origins)


A really good progress week with the HG Origins Grandpa

After I finished with the work on the HGUC Hazel II last a few weeks ago, I was finding myself really on a good roll and was looking forward to starting work on a new HG kit. Thankfully with the timely arrival (and after spending time unboxing it, of course) of the HG Origins Grandpa, now I could finally do so.

Although, I would admit I wasn’t mentally prepared for how awesome this kit turned out to be as soon as I started work on it.

So let me give you guys a picture rundown of my early experiences with this kit, so you could have an idea on how Impressed I was with this HG Gundam the Origins kit. So without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?

When I started on this, I was immensely impressed by how it looked and the way it was designed to be built. Even though there is some more work needed to be done on certain parts of this chest unit, but it was clear to me that even as a straight build kit, it looked impressive.
It has been quite a while since I had a lot of fun working on a backpack unit, not to mention one that looked as detailed as this…
Even the HG Origins Gramps head was a blast to work on. Though I do wonder as I worked myself through the build, if I’m working on an RG kit or if I’m working on an HG kit. Because quite honestly, this kit looked too insanely detailed to be an HG kit

Eventhough I am aware of how early it is still, but I’m starting to really enjoy the time I’ve spent on the kit. It looked really promising for me so far and I have a feeling that it would just get better from now onwards.

Well, that is as long as I don’t get myself into another ‘painting’ accident again. I really need to make sure that I don’t screw everything up again.

With that ends this week’s Work in Progress post for the HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam (HG Gundam the Origins). What do you think of my thoughts on the kit and how this HG kit looked so far? Did you experience the same things that I did? Or did you guys find out things that I didn’t on my run here? It has been quite a while since I worked on an HG kit that looked this detailed. I’m really impressed by the sheer amount of detail and this grandpa’s awesome looks. Not to mention, how every single individual part of the HG Origins Grandpa was designed to be put together here.

But there are a few things here and there that seems to be a bit off for me here. I really can’t put my finger on it yet… I still need to figure out what is it exactly, but I have a feeling that as soon as everything is put together, maybe then I would be able to piece together what is bothering me with this kit. 

But alas I will take my time to enjoy building this beast of a kit, and hopefully, my worries and concerns about the kit don’t take away my overall enjoyment of it as I worked on more of it soon.

Anyways, we will be back again with more new gunpla related posts this coming Thursday! So do look forward to that!
