The announcement of a 1/48 scale Gundam sent ripples through the modeling community and now, verily, it has come to pass.
Once assembled it will stand 36.5cm (almost 15 inches) tall, but perhaps the most impressive aspect of this monstrous kit is that you don't need any tools!
That's right! The pieces attach to the runner by a very thin length of plastic so you can break the pieces off with your hands!
To make things even easier, Bandai has made it so that you can snap two runners together and then remove the individual pieces.
There are even icons on the runners to indicate which part of the kit the pieces are for.
The 1/48 Gundam comes with two 1/48 beam sabers and his large (even larger now) beam rifle, and shield.
There is even a mini-booklet from Dengeki Hobby with detailed modeling tips for this model! Don't be intimidated by its size, this kit is a snap-technology as well.
(The 1/144, 1/100, MG Gundam shown with the 1/48 one below is just for size comparison; all are not included.)
