Unit Name: GAT-X105E + AQM/E-X09S Strike Noir Gundam
Series: Gundam Seed Stargazer
Grade: High Grade Gundam Seed
Completed In: 2008
Due to this Gundam’s popularity with its stylish gun-posing and my lack of budget of getting the MG grade (T__T), I decided to try out this kit instead.
For this kit, it has been sand-papered down to the finest grade to get the surface clean and shiny. Next I applied some colors using Gundam Markers to the black, yellow and red parts. Finally, the kit is lined using Gundam Marker Pen to add more details. Other smaller color details applied are the helmet’s front and rear lens (colored with metal blue), the triangle decals on each shoulders (colored in gold) and the short beam guns (colored with metallic silver and lined).
The kit comes with its own plastic stand with 2 different sets of angle, a piece of threaded wire (for the rocket anchor weapon) and a set of decal sticker. As usual, the stickers don’t actually provide your kit with the complete details, so I recommend that you use markers instead for better result and satisfaction 😉
If you’re lucky, you can grab of special version of this kit that comes with DVD promo catalogue. Basically the DVD contains a short intro about this kit’s features and Bandai’s other product franchise.
